CANDIDATES ARE PROVIDED 369 HOURS OF COMPREHENSIVE CURRICULUM
#T.E.A.C.H. offers the equivalent of between 14.76 college credit hours (Elementary & Secondary Certifications) and 17.80 college credit hours (K-12 Certifications) in the following areas:
Child development or child psychology
Family and community relationships
Additionally, in response to new MDE requirements, we also offer a course in Restorative Practices. Michigan law now requires districts to consider the use of restorative practices, especially when there are verbal and physical conflicts, bullying, theft, damage to property, class disruption, harassment and cyberbullying.
By engaging teachers new to the profession in this training, they will be prepared to comply with the new law. More importantly, however, the teacher will be able to effectively reduce suspensions and focus on teaching the student who misbehaved how to "repair the harm" that he or she caused.
