EIU Educator Preparation

English Language Arts

(Grades 9-12)

EIU's English Language Arts teacher licensure program has consistently been recognized as among the best programs for preparing English Language Arts teachers, not just in the state of Illinois but nationally.  In addition to traditional writing and literary and cultural studies courses, the major features three English Language Arts methods courses (the most of any program in the state), as well as courses in young adult literature, multicultural literature, digital writing, and genres studies that prepare candidates to meet the needs and interests of today's secondary students. The National Council of Teachers of English lists EIU’s program as an “exemplar program for training Secondary English Teachers.”
