Pedagogy/Methods I Semester

  1. Enroll for first pedagogy course and the associated field experience.
  2. Begin taking the core education courses: PSY 327, SSE 350, CEF 347 and LIN 344 (CEE 505, CEE 565, CEF 547 and CEE 594 for graduate students).*
  3. In consultation with program faculty, candidates should consider taking the required NYSED certification test: Educating All Students Test (EAS) during this semester, or (Other NYS certification tests the CST (Content Specialty Test) and the edTPA will be taken further on in the program.)


* Students in the graduate TESOL program are not required to take CEE 594. Graduate students in foreign languages should take FLA 540 instead of CEE 594. Fingerprinting is required for state certification, and many schools now require that candidates participating in field experience or student teaching also be fingerprinted. Since it takes 2-3 months to get results back, teacher candidates are urged to have fingerprints taken during the first pedagogy course. Fingerprinting is offered several times each semester through the School of Professional Development. For more information, send an email to, or visit the following web page: .
