Adolescence Education Grades 5-6 Extension
Stony Brook University is pleased to announce a new certification extension for teachers currently holding Adolescence Education certification (Grades 7-12) in any content area. The annotation requires completion of a six credit curriculum and application to NYSED through their TEACH Website.
Those individuals currently holding or seeking an Adolescence Education Certification (Grades 7 - 12) in any content area now have the opportunity to complete two courses that will add a Grades 5 - 6 extension to their teaching licenses. Upon completion of CEE 601 - Early Adolescent Development and CEE 602 - Middle Child Education: Instruction (see descriptions below), individuals who are not currently in Stony Brook teacher preparation programs and are licensed in Adolescence Education, regardless of content area, will be able to file on the TEACH website for this extension through the individual evaluation pathway.
For further information on admission to Stony Brook and registration for Stony Brook courses, please contact the School of Professional Development (SPD) by phone: 631-632-7050 (option 1) or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Currently matriculated students in Stony Brook’s undergraduate or graduate teacher preparation programs (MAT and/or combined Bachelor/MAT) may now include an option to extend their certification program requirements to cover Grades 5 and 6 with institutional recommendation. These students are required to take CEE 601 - Early Adolescent Development and CEE 602 - Middle Child Education: Instruction (see descriptions below), in addition to all other MAT program requirements.
Candidates in Stony Brook’s teacher preparation programs should contact their program directors for additional information (see chart below). Course descriptions are provided below; scheduling information may be found on SOLAR.
The required courses are as follows:
CEE 601 Early Adolescent Development: Social, Emotional, Physical, and Intellectual Challenges
