Grade Requirements: A grade of 2.0 or better in all courses used toward the minor.

Students who select the English Teaching Minor must satisfy the Teacher Education admission and licensure requirements (see Department of Teacher Education in this catalog).
English teaching minors must enroll in ENGL 3020, ENGL 3400, ENGL 3410, and ENGL 3420 concurrently following completion of their Teacher Education Level II course work and just prior to Teacher Education Level III (student teaching). As part of this 12-hour block of methods course work, students will be required to complete a ten-week public school field experience.
Student teaching takes place during Teacher Education Level III. Before student teaching, English teaching minors must have completed all required Education courses and at least 21 credit hours from required English courses, including ENGL 3080 - Critical Approaches to Literature, and the Methodology Block. Students must apply for student teaching through Teacher Education according to deadlines set by that department.
