As an elementary school teacher in grades P-3, you get to witness lots of “aha” moments. Now you have the opportunity to share those moments in even more classrooms.
Ball State’s early childhood expansion license for elementary grades 4-6 expands your opportunities beyond P-3.
School corporations look for teachers who have the flexibility of licensure to teach the full slate of elementary grades. If your early childhood teaching license only allows you to teach P-3, you can now expand your license to include elementary grades 4-6.
In fact, the expansion license requires that you be licensed to teach early childhood P-3.
Why Ball State?
Ball State Teachers College has been offering online courses since the late 1990s and today offers one of the largest arrays of online teacher-preparation in the country, so students can be assured their professors have experience and skills in online delivery of course materials.
The expansion license for grades 4-6 consists of five courses:
- EDRD 620 Disciplinary and Integrated Literacy in Elementary School (3 credits)
- EDEL 626 Discipline and Classroom Management (3 credits)
- EDEL 655 Principles of Differentiation in the Elementary Classroom (3 credits)
- EDEL 699 Practicum in Elementary Education (3 credits)
- ECYF 630 School, Family, and Community Partnerships (3 credits)
