                  STUDENT HANDBOOK




Revised 6/10/04
June, 2004



Dear Graduate Students,
       This handbook is prepared to assist off-campus graduate students to plan and
schedule their program at the Macomb Regional Education Center (MREC) of Saginaw
Valley State University. I hope the Question and Answer section will address some of
the most frequently asked questions by graduate students. The Graduate Education
Course Descriptions should help to answer questions regarding where courses fit in
specific graduate programs. The Schedule of Course Offerings provides an overview of
semesters when specific courses in each program will be offered.      The list of advisors
and the SVSU Library Resources sections are provided as a resource for your use.
Finally, on the next page is a copy of the College of Education’s Professional Behavior
Assessment. As a professional educator, it is important that we constantly assess our
personal attitudes and behaviors in relationship to our job responsibilities.

       I hope you enjoy your graduate studies at Saginaw Valley State

University. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call

our office at 810-749-0067.



Sincerely,

Dr. John Armstrong

Director of Off Campus Programs

            CERTIFICATION AND ENDORSEMENT INFORMATION

                           Michigan Provisional Certification

Upon completion of the Teacher Certification Program at Saginaw Valley State
University, a student becomes eligible to apply for a Michigan Provisional Certificate.
This initial “permit” to teach in the State of Michigan at either the elementary or
secondary level is “provisional” because it remains valid for only six years from the date
of issuance. At the end of this time span, a teacher may either seek a three year renewal
of the certificate or apply for the Provisional Education Certificate.

                                First Three Year Renewal

When the initial Michigan Provisional Certificate expires at the end of the six year time
span, a “First Renewal” is available if a teacher has completed ten (10) semester hours of
an 18-hour “ Planned Program” of coursework in a state approved teacher education
institution such as Saginaw Valley State University. The program is planned with the
College of Education Certification Officer, and application for the renewal to the
Michigan Department of Education is made through the Certification Office.

                              Second Three Year Renewal

A second three year renewal is available to teachers who complete the 18-hour planned
program but lack the three years of teaching experience required for the Professional
Education Certificate. Teachers in need of a second renewal should contact the College
of Education Certification Office.


                         The Professional Education Certificate

Upon completion of the 18-hour “Planned Program” and three full years of teaching or
450 days of part-time teaching, a teacher may apply for a Professional Education
Certificate. The Professional Education Certificate must be renewed with an application
to the Michigan Department of Education after having completed six (6) semester hours
of coursework every five years at a state approved teacher education college or university
or eighteen (18) SB-CEU’s (State Board Approved Continuing Education Units).


                                  The Planned Program

The 18-hour “Planned Program” of study which is required for a continued teacher
certification must be planned with a college or university Certification Officer.
Individualized program designs in various subject areas, certificate endorsements, and
graduate programs are available at Saginaw Valley State University through the College

                                           31
of Education. Selection of an appropriate program for each teacher is based upon
individual career goals, occupational need, and level of certification. Additional minors
may be added to elementary or secondary certificates for middle school and high school
subject areas. The College of Education also offers programs to prepare teachers for
certification specialization endorsements in Early Childhood Education, Special
Education, Middle School Teaching, and Reading. Coursework in these areas maybe
applied to a Master of Arts in Teaching Degree in each of the designated specialties.
Additional minors in certain endorsement areas may require the successful completion of
corresponding Michigan Tests of Teachers Certification (MTTC).                 For further
information on planning a program of study for continued certification, teachers are
encouraged to contact the College of Education Certification Officer.


                              Administration Endorsements

  The State of Michigan no longer requires school administrators to acquire certification
     through approved coursework at teacher/administrator preparatory colleges and
  universities. However, most Michigan school districts still require that administrators
   hold administrator endorsements. Saginaw Valley State University offers a Masters
    Degree in Educational Leadership with specialization in Elementary or Secondary
 Principalship, Central Office Administration, and Supertintendency. A Chief of School
   Business Official Endorsement for non-te aching positions is also available. Further
information on these programs can be obtained from the Certification Officer or a faculty
      advisor in the Education Leadership Department of the College of Education.

                          Defining the Program
                                      2004-2005

Accelerated Certification Education (ACE) is a unique program that allows individuals
who have a Bachelors degree or better to acquire their teaching certificate in a one year
period. This is accomplished through an intensive program that blends instructional
methods classes, student teaching and substitute teaching experiences in a nine month
period from August to the end of the SVSU winter term in April. To be successful, it
takes a team effort on the part of the Associate Teacher, the Cooperating Mentor Teacher
and our SVSU Instructors.

Persons enrolled in the secondary ACE program will spend the first two weeks in August
in course work focusing on Classroom Climate and substitute skills. The first10 weeks of
school, Secondary ACE students will alternate between substitute teaching on Mondays,
Wednesdays, and Fridays and observing/helping in the Cooperating Teacher’s classroom
on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The next 20 weeks will be focused on associate teaching.
Associate teachers will be scheduled with their Cooperating Teacher five (5) days a
week. During these 20 weeks, there should be a gradual transition of teaching
responsibilities from the Cooperating Teacher to the Associate Teacher.

All Elementary ACE students take a Children’s Literature course in August that also
focuses on the development of lesson plans. Beginning in the fall, Elementary ACE
Students will be in their assigned classroom four days a week, Tuesday through Friday.
On Mondays, Elementary ACE students report to the SVSU Macomb Regional Education
Center to take their methods courses. During the first three weeks of the fall semester,
students will primarily observe and assist the Cooperating Teacher in the classroom,
getting acquainted with the students and curriculum. Beginning the 4th week, Elementary
ACE students will than begin substitute teaching in other classrooms on an A week / B
week schedule, or as needed by the district.
