The 37-38 hour Spanish K-12 elementary education major combined with courses in the education department will prepare you to teach Spanish in a K-12 setting. For this major the field experience for Education 302/303 must be in an elementary school.
Elementary candidates will be certified to teach K-5 all subjects and K-12 Spanish based on completion of this K-12 major and the Elementary Education Program. Elementary candidates complete an elementary Spanish field placement during IDIS 356 and a secondary Spanish field placement during IDIS 357. EDUC 303 aiding and EDUC 345 student teaching are in regular elementary classrooms (candidates are encouraged to teach some Spanish in these placements if at all possible).
Prior to student teaching, candidates must successfully complete all three portions of the Spanish Department Proficiency Exam: Grammar, Composition, and Oral. The Proficiency Exam is offered by the Spanish Department four times each year. For dates and details, see Nora Koster in the Spanish Department. Candidates need a minimum of 80% on the Grammar Exam and need to attain a rating of Advanced Low for both the Composition and the Oral tests.
