The content mastery sheet is a course guide for program completion and endorsement preparation. The courses identified for these sheets are aligned with state and national standards for the content area you wish to teach.
Upon declaring Pre-Education (major code 232), and your option you will see the courses you need to complete in order to finish your education option. Students should download the content sheet that corresponds with the subject you wish to teach you can use this sheet as a guide as there are other suggested courses not listed in mydegrees. Course changes may occur due to changes in state standards; it is important to be in communication with your Education advisor at least once per academic year. Depending on your primary major, you may see that many of these courses can be accomplished through your primary major's curriculum. Many students also draw on their course offerings in the Baccalaureate Core to attend to the various standards for your content area. Classes not listed in the option but suggested on the content mastery sheet or courses from other institutions can be replaced by petition.
Please pay attention to the credit requirement in each standard, as many courses may be listed to satisfy the standard, but you are not expected to take every course listed. Take courses that will satisfy the standard.
As you complete courses that satisfy the standards, record the course number, the number of credits, the term you took it, and the grade you received. This form will be integral to your application into the Professional Level/ Student Teaching Cohort program and again when you commence student teaching. We suggest you bring your content sheet with you to your advising appointments with your primary major advisor and with your Education advisor.
**Note that for admission to the Professional Level/ Student Teaching Cohort and to progress to student teaching, a 3.0 or higher cumulative content mastery GPA is preferred.**
