Program Learning Outcomes

  • Students will submit an instructional portfolio containing 30+ lesson plans and artifacts structured around teaching a thematic unit which covers complex texts addressing 2+ genres and at least 1 piece of critical visual literacy. This portfolio will be a required element of ENGL 3900 Methods of Teaching English which is required for all English education students.
