Secondary/Post Secondary Dual Credit Teacher Education Courses
TQI established a pilot dual credit high school/college teacher education program in six regional high schools for the 2002-2003 school year. The development of this program was a collaborative effort that included planning with the MSU College of Education administration and faculty, representatives from other MSU departments, public school faculty and staff, high school students, and West Kentucky Community and Technical College (WKCTC).
Two education courses are offered to highly capable high school seniors who indicate a willingness to explore a possible career in teaching. The courses are designed to provide students with an insight into the nature of teaching, the problems of schools and the issues affecting the quality of education. They also include teaching related activities, outside speakers and college campus visits. The classes include observation and participation in a variety of settings including primary/elementary and middle school classrooms, special education, pre-school programs, secondary content specific classes, remedial programs and vocational/technical programs.
The TQI Dual Credit Program has had 612 high school seniors successfully complete its Teacher Education Program from 2002 to 2009. The percentage of those students attending college has increased from 69% (2002-2003) to 100% (2009-2010).
