There are four major areas of specialization in the Department of Educational Theory and Practice: early childhood education, elementary education, reading and language arts education, and social science education.

The primary missions of the Department of Educational Theory and Practice are: 1) to conduct research that provides new knowledge for the improvement of practice in educational settings through the ongoing publication of basic and applied educational research, the dissemination of research findings at scholarly conferences, and the seeking of external research funding; and 2) to provide excellence in the preparation of educators at the undergraduate level in the fields of early childhood education, elementary education, and social science education.

State of Florida Common Course Prerequisites

The State of Florida has identified common course prerequisites for the following University degree programs. Specific prerequisites are required for admission into the upper-division programs and must be completed by the student at either a community college or a state university prior to being admitted to these programs. Students may be admitted into the University without completing the prerequisites, but may not be admitted into the program.

EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION

Professor: Wolfgang;
Assistant Professor: Quick

The primary goal of early childhood (primary) education is to prepare educational leaders who are capable of working with the child, the family, and the community from age three, pre-k, and kindergarten through 3rd grade. Course work and extensive field experiences prepare graduates with specializations appropriate for educating the young child and designing curriculum for young children.

Undergraduate Curriculum in Early Childhood (Primary) Education Leading to a Baccalaureate Degree and Florida Teacher Certification

Effective fall 1989, students entering a teacher education program at The Florida State University are required to have a 2.5 grade point average (GPA) on a 4.0 scale. Admission is based upon availability of faculty and space.

An undergraduate curriculum is offered for a bachelor of science (BS) degree in early childhood (primary) education preparing students with major emphasis to teach ages three, pre-k and kindergarten through 3rd grade.

Courses are limited to admitted majors of early childhood (primary) education only. All courses are taken in sequenced semester blocks. Students must be advised and scheduled within the program as each semester is blocked.

To graduate with a degree in early childhood, students must complete the following coursework. Students are strongly urged to complete these requirements as part of their AA degree prior to coming to The Florida State University or as part of liberal studies at The Florida State University. No program requirements can be taken concurrently with semester I, II, or III and these requirements must be met before entering semester IV of the program. Students may have to attend a summer session to complete them.

Students who currently are freshmen or continuing sophomores at The Florida State University are strongly advised to seek counseling from Student Services, the Lower Division Student Advisor, 108 Stone Building.

Prospective majors must document their experiences working with a group of young children in settings such as camp counseling, teacher aide, substitute teaching, scouting team leader, swimming instructor, or a setting approved by the program prior to acceptance in the program.The course of study in early childhood (primary) education leading to a baccalaureate degree and teacher certification includes: EEC 4201, 4204, 4301, 4400, 4604, 4907r, 4943; EDF 4214, 4604; EEX 2010; LAE 3414, 4314; MAE 4300; RED 4310; SCE 4310; SSE 4113. The computer literacy requirement can be met through one or more of these courses.

Admission Requirements

Early childhood education is a limited access, limited enrollment program. The program admits students once a year for the fall term. Applicants in early childhood education are selected on the basis of four criteria: GPA, SAT/ACT scores, relevant experience, and professional promise. To be considered for admission, applicants must submit the following by March 15th for the fall semester (an interview may be given following submission of application) Note: the admission policies for this program currently are under review and had not been finalized by the publication of this General Bulletin. Contact the Department of Educational Theory and Practice for the most current admission policies:

  1. Application form (available in 115C Stone Building or call (904) 644-5458);
  2. Transcript of previous coursework and documentation of test scores (SAT/ACT, CLAST) and GPA;

SOCIAL SCIENCE EDUCATION

Professors: Allen, Lunstrum, K. Scott

Curriculum for Teachers of Middle and Secondary Social Science Leading to a Baccalaureate Degree and Florida Teacher Certification

Students accepted into the social science teacher education program are required to have a 2.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale. To complete the overall program requirements for the baccalaureate degree and teacher certification in middle and secondary school social science, a student must have thirty-six (36) semester hours in history and social science, including credit in the following subjects: anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, and sociology. The thirty-six (36) semester hours may include courses in history and social science taken for liberal studies and those taken to meet the requirements for admission to the upper division major. Students must include the following course distribution in their programs: six (6) semester hours of American history, six (6) semester hours of American government, three (3) semester hours of sociology, three (3) semester hours of anthropology, six (6) semester hours of geography, and nine (9) semester hours of economics. One three (3) semester hour 3000/4000 level course must be a non-American, non-Western history or social science course. Also, three (3) of the nine (9) semester hours of economics must be taken at the 3000/4000 level. In addition to the required thirty-six (36) semester hours of history and social sciences the student must choose a field of concentration and take fifteen (15) semester hours in one of the social sciences or history disciplines or fifteen (15) semester hours focused on a topic/theme related to social science instruction (e.g., American culture, area studies, world affairs, ethnic studies). Professional education requirements (as detailed in the College of Education section of this General Bulletin) include SSE 4362, 4364, 4664, and 4944. SSE 4362, 4364, 4664, and 4940r are prerequisites for student teaching and should be taken in the fall semester immediately preceding student teaching in the spring. Students may not use for their field of concentration any course in which they receive a grade below C. Prior to admission to student teaching, students must have an overall GPA of 2.75 or higher. In addition a 3.0 GPA is required in all social science courses taken at the postsecondary level.

Students who have completed a bachelors degree in an appropriate field may also seek certification only in conjunction with course work applied toward a graduate degree. In meeting requirements for certification, these students should enroll in graduate-level professional courses.

Attention is called to the following information: 1) only degree-seeking students will be admitted to the social science certification program which is an integral part of the degree requirements; 2) to complete student teaching satisfactorily, students must pass the state certification tests; and 3) in the interest of effective supervision, student teachers will, of necessity, be placed in clusters within designated school systems in Florida. There can be no assurance given that students will be placed in counties based on personal preference or convenience. A signed student teaching location preference form is required.
