Middle Childhood Generalist Endorsement

What is the Middle Childhood Generalist Endorsement?

The Middle Childhood Education (MCE) license covers two content areas (from language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies) in grades 4-9. The Generalist Endorsement is an optional add-on that allows a teacher to teach grades 4-5-6 in one or two additional content areas not on the original teaching license.

For example, a teacher licensed in MCE language arts and social studies may add on the Generalist Endorsement for 1) mathematics, 2) science, or 3) both mathematics and science.
