### Recommended Program of Study: Integrated Teacher Preparation Program (ITPP) Pathway

The Integrated Teacher Preparation Program (ITPP) provides paths to 4-year science and math degrees that include a teaching credential and preparation for the California Subject Examination for Teachers (CSET). Students who are interested in middle or secondary education (grades 6-12) in California may earn a degree in mathematics while simultaneously completing requirements for a teaching credential. The degree integrates content knowledge and laboratory practices in the discipline, evidence-based teaching/learning theories, teaching performance expectations, and pre-student teaching clinical practice while satisfying baccalaureate degree requirements and CTC single subject credential program standards. There is some flexibility to meet individual needs. Students are encouraged to consult the ITPP website (http://www.sandiego.edu/itpp) and advisors (itpp@sandiego.edu) to ensure that their needs and interests will be met.

In addition to all courses for the mathematics major, students completing the ITPP pathway must also take the following:

Code | Title | Units |
---|---|---|

EDUC 332P | Curriculum and Methods of Teaching in Today's Global Secondary Classrooms | 3 |

EDUC 334P | Methods of Teaching Literacy in Secondary Schools in a Global Society | 3 |

EDUC 337P | Foundations in Curriculum and Instruction Theory: Secondary Praxis in Historical Context | 3 |

EDUC 381C | Multicultural and Philosophical Foundations in a Global Society | 3 |

EDUC 382 | Psychological Foundations of Education in a Diverse Society | 3 |

EDUC 384C | Methods of Teaching English Language and Academic Development in Crosscultural Contexts | 3 |

EDUC 491P | Student Teaching for the Single Subject Credential | 9 |

EDUC 491S | Student Teaching Seminar for the Single Subject Credential | 3 |

EDSP 389P | Healthy Environments and Inclusive Education in a Global Society | 3 |

The following paradigm is included as a guide only, and should not be interpreted in a rigid sense. UD elective courses may be taken at any time as long as the course prerequisites have been satisfied.
