Secondary Ready2Teach Education Minor
Admission to teacher education is a prerequisite for YOED 2500, YOED 3000, YOED 3300, Residency I & Residency II
Sequence of Courses
There are three pre-residency courses (YOED 2500, YOED 3000, YOED 3300) in the secondary education minor. The ideal time to start this minor is during the second semester of the sophomore year. The YOED 2500 course must be taken first since it is a prerequisite for the other two.
Here is the recommended sequence for taking the pre-residency courses:
YOED 2500 – Second semester sophomore year
YOED 3000 – First semester junior year
YOED 3300 – Second semester junior year
For those who enter the program late, YOED 3000 and YOED 3300 can be taken during the same semester. If one takes this route, one should be alert to the fact that this would require two separate field placements in two different schools during that semester.
Ideally, YOED 3300 should be taken the semester before one starts Residency I.
YOED 2500 - Offered in the fall, spring and summer
YOED 3000 – Offered each fall and spring
YOED 3300 – Offered each fall and spring
Field placements for YOED 3000 and YOED 3300 require that students assume full or partial control of a public school classroom, so those courses must be taken while public schools are in session.
Registering for Classes
As soon as one is admitted to the Ready2Teach program, one will receive instructions for obtaining a POD to enroll in YOED 2500.
Once a grade of B or better has been obtained for YOED 2500, each student must contact the instructor of YOED 3000 and/or YOED 3300 to request a POD to register when one wants to take either class. Each student will need to supply that instructor with all of the following information:
Grade Expectations: One must make a grade of B or better in each pre-residency education course.
Secondary Education Minor Advisors: In addition to the major advisor, each teacher education student in the secondary education program has a secondary education minor advisor. You can find the name of your minor advisor below by looking for your major. You should contact this person any time that you have a question pertaining to the Ready2Teach program.
