Master of Arts in Education/Teacher Education Middle Level Generalist
The Master of Arts in Education/Teacher Education Middle Level Generalist (MAED/TEDMG 06TX) is a graduate degree program preparing candidates for teacher licensure. The guiding philosophy of the MAED/TEDMG 06TX program is to provide the adult student, who already has a degree in a discipline other than education, with the skills and knowledge that will allow them to become a competent and effective educator. This program focuses on middle level student learning by improving the educator’s responsibility for that learning.
Student teaching is an integral component of the Teacher Education Program. It provides students with a field-based experience at the appropriate grade and content level. Student teachers work with a cooperating teacher from a school site and with a University of Phoenix faculty advisor. The student teaching experience is designed to emphasize the achievement of state standards leading to certification and to present individuals with growth opportunities that best prepare them to assume the duties of a certified classroom teacher.
Throughout the program, students are required to complete a minimum of 100 hours of verified field experiences, covering a variety of developmental levels. The focus of each observation will relate to specific course content. Documentation will be maintained in the student’s professional portfolio.
