Middle School Approval

For students who are planning to teach at the middle-school level, we offer a middle school approval. To meet State of Illinois requirements to earn this approval, students must complete the following courses in addition to the requirements for a secondary licensure major or a K-12 licensure area.

One of the following three options must be completed.

EDU 360/MTL 563 The Middle School: History, Philosophy, Organizational Structures and Best Practices and
EDU 361/MTL 561 Understanding the Middle Level Learner

or

EDU 360/MTL 563 The Middle School: History, Philosophy, Organizational Structures and Best Practices and
PSY 318 Adolescent Development

or

EDU 360/MTL 563 The Middle School: History, Philosophy, Organizational Structures and Best Practices and
SPE/SEC 311 and one of the following: SPE 250, SEC 310, or KIN 440

Candidates who do not complete SPE/SEC 311 Educational Psychology at Elmhurst College must complete an additional course in adolescent psychology (EDU 361 or PSY 318). K-12 licensure candidates seeking middle school endorsements outside their area of concentration must also obtain middle school approval. All courses must be completed with a C (2.0) or higher.
