Earn Your Middle School Endorsement
This endorsement will allow you to add a content area to your license, gaining valuable skills specific to the context in which you’ll teach. North Park’s middle school endorsement program will help advance your career and make you a more effective teacher. You’ll examine the development issues that impact the middle school and its philosophies and practices; understand the middle school classroom and its structure, curriculum, and instruction; explore teaching strategies; and learn how to better support students as changing young people.
Our program will help you meet the requirements for earning this endorsement: in addition to the semester hour requirement in your subject area (typically 18 semester hours), you’ll complete our two courses.
Our compassionate, experienced faculty spend time in the field to master the latest best practices and regularly contribute to advancing the framework of education. They will teach you best practices in education—and prepare you to lead and transform others wherever your career takes you.
