The middle childhood generalist endorsement may be added to an existing middle childhood education license. The endorsement allows candidates to teach core academic content areas for grades 4-6. In addition to completing the coursework in the areas not named in the original license, candidates for the endorsement must successfully complete the required area examinations. Contact the Department of Teacher Education or the Ohio Department of Education, Office of Educator Preparation for additional information on the Praxis examination requirements for the endorsement.
Courses used for GEP or other degree/licensure programs may not be used for the middle childhood generalist endorsement. See faculty advisor for appropriate courses.
