November SEOH News

Literacy Courses

Students in need of literacy elective courses are advised that the Department of Teacher Education is offering two courses this winter that are traditionally offered in our spring and summer sprint terms. Please note that these courses are taught in the standard Miami winter term, January 2 - January 26, and therefore do not coincide with the winter term courses offered within our SEOH program. EDT 642 has meeting times at Voice of America on Tuesday nights. Teacher Education is also offering EDT 646 entirely online.

Spring registration begins November 6. A new section of EDT 642 has recently been added for spring. Anyone needing a spring literacy course should register for this course immediately. Please consult your plans of study and contact Lesley Sawhook with any questions about winter registration. Both 642 and 646 will also be available next summer.

Spring 2019 Student Teachers

The 12 credit 605F field experience course associated with student teaching is not available for student self-registration. Any student intending to student teach next spring must notify Lesley to be registered for the course.
