# 12 Action:

Program Change: Master of Education (M.Ed.), Elementary Education

Rationale for change: 

      Our changing graduate student demographics necessitated a design in program offerings according to the educational background of applicants.  Accordingly, we have designed 5 tracks: the first for applicants who already possess a certification in education and are seeking a master’s degree in the same area.  The second track is for those who possess a certification in education and wish to become reading specialists.  The third track is for those who possess certification in an area of education and wish to obtain an additional certification in the process of receiving a master’s degree.  The fourth track is for those who possess no certification in education and wish to pursue certification while pursuing a master’s degree. The fifth track is for those who possess no certification in education and who wish only to pursue a master’s degree in education, but no certification.

      List all changes:

      The new graduate program theme is “the teacher as reflective educational leader.”  (It was formerly “the teacher as instructional leader.”)  The new theme maintains reflection which has been the heart of both the undergraduate and graduate programs, and it maintains leadership as an expectation accompanying increased competence.  The instructional leadership theme was not widely published or recognized as the theme, and the new theme resonates with our capstone course “the teacher and educational leadership.”  Teacher leadership has been valued, taught and understood in depth by the faculty for some time.  The new theme will articulate this value more widely.

      The oral final examination has been replaced by a capstone course, ED 5592 The Teacher and Educational Leadership, in which students will complete an individual final project.  The course will provide the department with NCATE performance data on our individual graduates and on our graduates collectively.

      The one track for all has been changed to 5 tracks designed according to student need as described above and outlined on the attached pages. 

      Program Description for Catalog:

      Elementary education teaching requires caring, committed, and talented professionals who are knowledgeable in a wide range of curricular areas.  In the M.Ed. program, students build upon their undergraduate programs of study in individualized tracks.  Courses and research experiences in the graduate program are designed to prepare reflective educational leaders, specifically teacher leaders.  The program is designed to develop advanced knowledge in research, curriculum, supervision, and adapting instruction to meet the needs of all learners.  Each graduate student completes a common core of courses, professional education courses according to student background, and finally a concentration which may be an elementary emphasis, technology emphasis, reading specialist, or children’s literature emphasis.  Other areas of emphasis can be individually developed with assistance from the student’s advisor.  The minimum number of semester hours required for the degree is 33 (or 30 if the thesis option is completed).

      The one track for all has been changed to 5 tracks designed according to student need as described above and outlined on the attached pages.

      Program Description for Catalog:

      Through graduate studies in education, graduate students become more knowledgeable, skilled, and confident teachers.  They also learn to support their colleagues, to be life-long learners, and to lead by example.  Teaching requires knowledgeable, creative, and committed professionals who make strong decisions on behalf of their students.  In the M.S.Ed. program, students build upon their undergraduate programs of study in individualized tracks.  Courses and research experiences in the graduate program are designed to prepare reflective educational leaders, specifically teacher leaders.  The program is designed to develop advanced knowledge in research, curriculum, supervision, and adapting instruction to meet the needs of all learners.  Each graduate student completes a common core of courses, professional education courses according to student background, and finally a concentration which may be a reading specialist, technology emphasis, secondary education history emphasis, or a children’s literature emphasis.  Other areas of emphasis can be individually developed with assistance from the student’s advisor.  The minimum number of semester hours required for the degree is 33 (or 30 if the thesis option in completed).
