Mission and Conceptual Framework

Mission Statement

It is the mission of the School of Education to model competence, character, and compassion so that our students emulate and embrace these qualities in service and leadership.

Conceptual Framework

Being, Knowing, and Doing-Educators: Shaping the Future. The underlying structure of the conceptual framework for the School of Education informs and frames the entire unit.

Knowing

Understands Content

Understands Intellectual, Social, and Personal Development

Understands Diversity

Doing

Designs Instructional Strategies

Manages and Motivates

Communicates and Collaborates

Plans and Integrates

Evaluates

Being

Reflects on Practice

Participates in the Professional Community

Pursues Spiritual Development

Inherent in Trevecca's heritage, mission, and program is the assumption that because of who we are (Being), we seek to learn (Knowing), and to teach (Doing).

The framework for the conceptual framework is based on INTASC and other national standards.

Teacher Education

Teacher education collaborates with other departments on campus to offer an integrated program and provide the professional education component for teacher candidates. Students in teacher education have the option of completing degrees leading to licensure or degrees not leading to licensure.

Associate of Science Degree (non-licensure):

Baccalaureate Degrees (licensure) consist of a general education core, a major in the subject area, and a minor in the professional core. Practica and enhanced student teaching are required to complete the program.

Non-licensure: A student has an option of completing any of the baccalaureate degrees non-licensure with permission of the Director of Teacher Education.

Goals

The goals of Teacher Education are to assist the candidate in the preparation for becoming an effective classroom teacher by:

Knowing

Doing

Being

Student Learning Outcomes

These student learning outcomes are the overarching outcomes for all teacher education programs.

Graduates of the Teacher Education Program will:

  1. (Knowing) evidence basic writing, grammar, reading, computational, and technological skills;
  2. (Knowing) demonstrate mastery of coursework in their major, minor, and general core;
  3. (Doing) demonstrate the skills of an effective teacher; and
  4. (Being) develop professional awareness as evidenced through personal initiative and commitment to lifelong learning.

The Teacher Education Program employs the ten Interstate New Teacher Assessment Support Consortium's (INTASC) principles and one university specific principle to evaluate the four learning outcomes.

Knowing

Principle #1: The teacher candidate understands the central concepts, tools of inquiry, and structures of the disciplines(s) he or she teaches and can create learning experiences that make these aspects of subject matter meaningful for students.

Principle #2: The teacher candidate understands how children learn and develop, and can provide learning opportunities that support their intellectual, social, and personal development.

Principle #3: The teacher candidate understands how students differ in their approaches to learning and creates instructional opportunities that are adapted to diverse learners.

Doing

Principle #4: The teacher candidate understands and uses a variety of instructional strategies to encourage students' development of critical thinking, problem solving, and performance skills.

Principle #5: The teacher candidate uses an understanding of individual and group motivation and behavior to create a learning environment that encourages positive social interaction, active engagement in learning, and self-motivation.

Principle #6: The teacher candidate uses knowledge of effective verbal, nonverbal, and media communication techniques to foster active inquiry, collaboration, and supportive interaction in the classroom.

Principle #7: The teacher candidate plans instruction based upon knowledge of subject matter, students, the community, and curriculum goals.

Principle #8: The teacher candidate understands and uses formal and informal assessment strategies to evaluate and ensure the continuous intellectual, social, and physical development of the learner.

Being

Principle #9: The teacher candidate is a reflective practitioner who continually evaluates the effects of his/her choices and actions on others (students, parents, and other professionals in the learning community) and who actively seeks out opportunities to grow professionally.

Principle #10: The teacher candidate fosters relationships with school colleagues, parents, and agencies in the larger community to support student's learning and well-being.

Principle #11: (Trevecca Specific) The professional Christian educator embraces ethical and moral values and is able to integrate Christian faith and learning in practice.

Teacher Education Programs (non-licensure)

In addition to the non-licensure Child Care and Paraprofessional Training programs, a student who for any reason has not met all admission and testing requirements, competencies, and skills for teacher licensure but has met all other University graduation requirements may receive a BA or BS non-licensure degree in education. Any student who desires to graduate non-licensure must apply with the director of teacher education and change his/her major in the Office of Academic Records at least one semester prior to graduation.

Teacher Education Program (licensure)

The goal of Trevecca Nazarene University's Teacher Education Program is the preparation of quality classroom teachers. The program is based on the conceptual framework of Knowing, Doing, Being.

A collaborative partnership with the schools and community provides teacher candidates with real-life applications of the academic, pedagogic, and developmental experiences.

Program Design

Students can earn licensure recommendation from the University at the undergraduate level through two different programs.

  1. A bachelor's degree program which includes enhanced student teaching; or
  2. A post baccalaureate program for undergraduate credit offering initial licensure, add-on endorsement, or license renewal. Individuals seeking or holding a teaching permit or a transition teaching license may complete course requirements through the post baccalaureate program.

Licensure Areas

The Teacher Education Program at Trevecca offers licensure in the following areas of study:

The guidelines listed under all Education Programs do not constitute a contract between a Trevecca student and the University. The sole purpose is to provide regulations, course listings, and degree programs which are in effect at the time of publication. Because of recent or pending changes in state and/or national requirements, Trevecca reserves the right to add, modify, or withdraw courses at any time.

Admission to the Teacher Education Program

Admission to the University does not constitute admission to the Teacher Education Program. Application for admission to the program should be submitted within three semesters of declaring an education major or in the first semester of study for transfer and post baccalaureate students. The application process is facilitated through Foundations of Education (EDU 1500). All students must pass a background check during EDU 1500 course or upon starting any education courses. Transfer and post-baccalaureate students seeking licensure must take at least twelve (12) semester hours in the Education Major and/or the Professional Core at Trevecca. All transfer students must submit verification of acceptable ACT/SAT scores to the Office of the School of Education during the first semester at Trevecca. All post-baccalaureate students must submit verification of acceptable ACT/SAT scores, or MAT or GRE if taken prior to admittance. If no scores are available, the student must complete the PPST with passing scores.

Requirements for Admission to Teacher Education

  1. Submit a completed Application for Admission to Teacher Education
  2. Demonstrate competence (minimum grade of C or S) in:
    1. English (ENG 1020, ENG 1080),
    2. Speech (COM 1010),
    3. Foundations of Education (EDU 1500), and
    4. Foundations Practicum in Education (EDU 1010).
  3. Complete Writing on Demand activity with a score of 10 or better (completed in EDU 1500)
  4. Attend the Foundation's Retreat
  5. Have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better
  6. Present passing scores on the Pre-Professional Skills Test (PPST), mandated by the State of Tennessee. An ACT Composite score of 22 or SAT combined verbal and mathematics score of 1020 is acceptable as a substitute for passing PPST scores
  7. Submit 3 recommendations from TNU professors
  8. Pass screening interview

Specific requirements and procedures are described in the Teacher Education Handbook.

Due Process

Students who have questions concerning action taken by the Teacher Education Committee have the right to appeal through the established due process procedure. An appeal must be in writing and follow the protocol listed below. If a decision is not acceptable to the student at any point, the appeal must be made in writing within 15 days to the next level. All appeals originate with the Director of Teacher Education.

The decision of the Dean of the School of Education is final.

Admission to Student Teaching

All teacher candidates in the initial licensure Teacher Education Program at Trevecca must complete a semester (75 days) of enhanced student teaching which includes placements in two different school settings and at two different grades/grade levels. This culminating experience is conducted in the public schools under the guidance of a classroom teacher and a Trevecca faculty supervisor. Enhanced Student Teaching provides an extended time for the teacher candidate to identify strengths and weaknesses and develop an effective personal teaching style. Application and interviews for student teaching are conducted in the Spring term prior to the school year in which the teacher candidate plans to student teach.

To be admitted to student teaching, the teacher candidate must make application to the Office of Teacher Education by December 15 of the year prior to the expected student teaching. Once the teacher candidate's application is on file, an interview is scheduled with the Screening Committee. The Teacher Education Committee approves the candidate based on the screening committee's recommendation. Candidates will be notified in writing of their status (approval, conditional, hold, or deferred) for admission to Enhanced Student Teaching based on the following requirements. If there is evidence of weakness in any area which gives question to the candidate's ability to successfully complete the student teaching experience, then the candidate will be rescreened after a period of additional study.

Requirements for Admission to Student Teaching

  1. Previous admission to the Teacher Education Program
  2. A cumulative GPA of 2.75 or better
  3. Complete Writing on Demand activity with a score of 10 or better
  4. Senior status, or the equivalent for post baccalaureate teacher candidates, and completion of a minimum of half the total hours of the Professional Education Core including the basic methods courses in the areas of specialization in which student teaching is to be done
  5. A minimum GPA of 2.8 in both the Professional Core and the Major area(s). Teacher candidates may have no more than one C- in either area
  6. Completion and submission of an application form including a photograph
  7. Submission of acceptable scores on all the Praxis tests: Principles of Learning and Teaching and required specialty area tests as mandated by the state of Tennessee
  8. Interview with screening committee
  9. Music Education majors must pass the Keyboard Proficiency Exam or complete Class Piano I-IV with an average of B- or higher
  10. PE Education majors must meet the conditioning criteria of the Department of Exercise and Sport Science

Once approval of the teacher candidate's application has been granted, the Coordinator of Field Placement or designee, in conjunction with school-based personnel, will arrange placements.

If difficulty arises during the student teaching experience which causes sufficient doubt as to satisfactory completion of student teaching, an assessment interview will be called. Such an interview could lead to: 1) removal from student teaching; or 2) an additional student teaching experience; or 3) a decision not to recommend the teacher candidate for licensure.

Program Completer Requirements

Candidates are considered program completers when the following criteria are met.

Licensure Requirements

In order to be recommended for licensure, candidates must complete all requirements to become a program completer and submit the required licensure paperwork.

Post Baccalaureate Program

This program is organized to provide service for three different types of students:

Type 1. Students who hold a baccalaureate degree and wish to take classes leading to recommendation for initial teacher licensure. These students will NOT earn credits toward another degree;

Type 2. Students who want to add an additional area of endorsement to their current teacher license; or

Type 3. Students with teacher licensure who need coursework to satisfy requirements for renewal of their current teacher license or who want course work for professional development or personal enrichment.

General Information

Students who hold a Bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university can attend Trevecca Nazarene University under the auspices of the Post Baccalaureate Office at a reduced tuition rate. Directed Study, available only to those enrolled in licensure programs, is charged regular University tuition plus directed study fee.

A transcript evaluation, showing a 2.5 GPA, is required prior to enrolling in any teacher licensure program. Credit may be given as a result of the transcript evaluation for previously taken courses that are required for licensure in a specific area. A transcript evaluation fee will be charged, which will be applied to the application fee if the student decides to enroll.

Post-baccalaureate students seeking licensure must take at least twelve (12) semester hours in the Education Major and/or the Professional Core at Trevecca. Post-baccalaureate students must submit verification of acceptable ACT/SAT scores, or MAT or GRE if taken prior to admittance. If no scores are available, the student must complete the PPST with passing scores.

International students may not enroll in education courses as post baccalaureate students until all admissions procedures described under Admission of International Students in the Admissions section of this Catalog have been processed. One of the requirements is that applicants whose native language is not English must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).

The Teacher Education Program at Trevecca offers licensure in the following areas of study:

Undergraduate and post-baccalaureate

The guidelines listed under all Education Programs do not constitute a contract between a Trevecca student and the University. The sole purpose is to provide regulations, course listings and degree programs which are in effect at the time of publication. Because of recent or pending changes in state and/or national requirements, Trevecca reserves the right to add, modify, or withdraw courses at any time.

For the convenience of our post-baccalaureate students, application for admission and academic advising take place in the Office of the School of Education. For specific information see the Post Baccalaureate Supplement available in the Office of the School of Education.

Courses for Teachers

For Teacher Recertification

Trevecca Nazarene University School of Education is using the online platform hosted by Virtual Education Software to offer courses for teachers on CD-ROM and online formats. These interactive courses provide expert instruction at a pace that fits various schedules and are offered for undergraduate and graduate credit. The graduate courses can be seen in the graduate catalog supplement or on the website www.trevecca.edu/soe/vesi. These courses can be used for license renewal, plus 30 for salary advancement, and additional knowledge. These courses do not satisfy initial license requirements, transfer to a TNU education degree/program, or lead to a degree.
