Dual Credit Courses
TQI offers a dual credit high school/college teacher education course in regional high schools. 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).
An education course is offered to highly capable high school seniors who indicate a willingness to explore a possible career in teaching during the fall semester. The course is designed to provide students with an insight into the nature of teaching, the problems of schools and the issues affecting the quality of education. The class includes observation and participation in a variety of settings including primary/elementary and middle school classrooms, pre-school programs, and secondary content specific classes.
