Additional Education Requirements
- All teaching-option students must successfully complete a writing course numbered WRTG 10600 or above.
- Teaching-option candidates must take the ACTFL-OPIc (Oral proficiency Interview via computer, developed by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Language and administered by Language Testing International) during or before their EDUC 41310 course and obtain a minimum rating of Advanced Low for their oral proficiency in order to proceed into student teaching. Information about this exam is available at http://www.languagetesting.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/OPIc-Familiarization-Manual.pdf. Questions about this program requirement can also be directed to the Department of Education.
- All teaching-option students must maintain a minimum overall G.P.A of 3.0 as well as a G.P.A. of 3.0 in their subject area coursework.
- Students must earn a grade of B or better in all EDUC courses in the Education Core to qualify for student teaching. A grade of B- does not qualify.
- EDUC 49810 and EDUC 41210 constitute a full course load during the student-teaching semester. No additional courses may be taken nor can teacher candidates participate in extra-curricular activities that have the potential to affect time for teaching and preparation.
- During the semester of student teaching, the student may not play a college sport.
- All candidates for initial certification must successfully complete all New York State Certification tests or performance assessments required by the state for the applicant's intended teaching certificate (type, grade levels, and subject areas).
- The department chair and the coordinator of teacher education in the subject area must approve any exceptions to the above requirements.
- The All-College Teacher Education Unit at Ithaca College requires teacher education students, regardless of program area, to be reviewed at four programmatic transition points during their course of study. Continuation in a teacher education major is contingent upon the student successfully meeting the requirements of each transition point review; therefore, admission into one of the Ithaca College Teacher Education Program majors at admission or upon transfer to the College does not guarantee that a student will be allowed to complete the program required for teaching certification. Further information can be found in the Unit-Wide Assessment Systems section of the main Department of Education catalog page.
