Elementary Education K-6, B.S.
We know that teaching children is a calling for many people. They are driven by a passion for nurturing, interacting with, and shaping the minds of young people. Indiana Tech shares that passion, which is why our Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education stands out.
A practical, hands-on approach
We believe that in-the-field, practicum experiences in public or private school settings help our students develop important skills. This keeps the curriculum fresh and flexible, adjusting to real-life settings easily. Our students are up-to-date in modern teaching practices, with a curriculum strong in technology, instructional methodology, classroom management, motivational strategies, and diversity.
Four values central to our graduates
We stress the hands-on model of learning in the majority of our coursework. Four themes run strong throughout the program and are ingrained in our graduates:
- Knowledge of content, context, human development, and pedagogy
- Skills and disposition of a reflective practitioner who considers the impact of actions
- Respect and appreciation for diversity
- Professionalism in all aspects of his/her career
These concepts are stressed in every aspect of our program, leading to caring, responsible, passionate elementary and middle-school teachers.
