Statement of Purpose

The Faculty of Education prepares students to assume leadership roles in education.
Graduates are ready to begin a professional career and to broaden and deepen their
professional expertise through continuing study. Through a sequence of educational
experiences integrating theory and practice, the faculty and its partners in education provide
opportunities for the academic and professional development of teachers, guidance personnel,
and administrators at all levels in public school systems, community colleges, and other
learning environments. Students acquire the knowledge, ethical standards, skills, dispositions,
and flexibility needed to address current problems in education both creatively and effectively,
and to think critically about professional practice. In all its work, the Faculty seeks to prepare
educators who understand the past, delight in the challenges of the present, and look
optimistically to the future.

Students have access to centres in the Faculty which provide teaching, research, and
educational services to schools and communities. These include centres established for the
study of aboriginal education, early childhood, mathematics education, second language
learning, and social studies education.

Degrees in Education

The BEd degree is awarded upon successful completion of 60 credit hours of study in
Education, taken concurrently, i.e., along with another Bachelor's degree, or consecutively,
i.e., following another Bachelor's degree. Students who have completed courses at another
university may apply to transfer into the concurrent degree program.

The concurrent BEd degree (i.e., a BEd earned in conjunction with another Bachelor's degree
at UNB) consists of 60 ch of study. Cooperating faculties are Arts (BA), Administration (BBA),
Computer Science (BCS), Kinesiology (BKIN), Bachelor of Recreation and Sports Studies
(BRSS), and Science (BSc).

Note: See the description of each concurrent degree program under the cooperating faculty
heading in section E of this calendar. Please Note: In order to qualify for a level 5 New
Brunswick teaching license, a concurrent degree program must contain a minimum of 168 ch.
Undergraduate Calendar Proof
2007-2008
The consecutive BEd degree program described in this section consists of 60 ch of study
following the completion of another Bachelor's degree, which may be completed on a full-time
or part-time basis.

BEd program requirements are the same for both the concurrent and the consecutive degree.

Students entering the school years pattern will be accepted into one of the following:

    1. Program Option 1: Early Years/Middle Years
    2. Program Option 2: Middle Years/Young Adult Years

Students must apply in writing to the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies to change
programs.


General Information
All students wishing to follow degree credit programs in Education must obtain permission to
enrol from the Admissions Office of the University. Students will normally only be accepted
into the Faculty in September. Please refer to Section B of this calendar for more information
on Admission requirements.

Those wishing to follow a graduate studies program should write the Dean of the School of
Graduate Studies.

Students may take some courses for teacher certification credit without being formally
admitted to a degree program. However no degree credit will be granted for any course until
formal admission to the Faculty has been granted; courses taken before formal admission will
not necessarily be accepted for degree credit.

Graduates of the BEd program are pursuing careers in education in many jurisdictions in
Canada, the United States, and in other parts of the world. Students who successfully
complete the school year pattern program requirements, including the internship, are eligible
to apply for a New Brunswick teacher's licence. This licence is recognized by other Canadian
Provinces and most US states. Nevertheless, students should ensure that the specific
programs they are following will qualify them for teacher cetification in the province, state or
country where they hope to work.

Note: The Province of New Brunswick Teacher Certification Regulations under the Education
Act states that only Canadian citizens or those holding landed immigrant status or a work visa
are eligible for teacher certification in the Province of New Brunswick.

PREREQUISITES TO THE PROGRAM

Consecutive Program

To be admitted to the Consecutive BEd Early Years Program, students must have at least 30
credit hours of course work in teachable subjects involving courses in at least four different
teachable subjects and including at least 3 credit hours in each of English, mathematics, a
science (biology, chemistry, physics, earth science, environmental science, geology or another
approved science course), and one of history, economics, political science, or geography.

To be admitted to the Consecutive BEd Middle or Young Adult programs, students must have a
major of 30 credit hours in one teachable subject and 18 credit hours in another teachable
subject or a double minor of 24 credit hours in two different teachable subjects.
Undergraduate Calendar Proof
2007-2008
Concurrent Program:

Note: Although students may be admitted after completing only 30 credit hours of
undergraduate studies, they must fulfill one of the following requirements before the BEd will
be awarded.

    a.   In the Early Years program, students must complete at least 30 ch of teachable
         content. This 30 ch must include at least 3 ch in each of the following: English, math,
         science (biology, chemistry, physics, earth science environmental science, geology, or
         another approved science course), and history, for a minimum of 12 ch. The remaining
         18 ch may be from any one or a combination of teachable subjects. The mathematics
         requirement must be a course with a MATH prefix and statistics is not accepted to
         meet this requirement. However, this requirement may be satisfied by taking ED 3415
         .
    b.   In the Middle/Young Adult programs, students must complete a major of 30 credit
         hours in one teachable subject and 18 credit hours in another teachable subject, or a
         double minor of 24 credit hours in each of two different subjects.
    c.   Teachable subjects are: Biology, Business Administration, Canadian Studies,
         Chemistry, Classics, Commerce, Computer Science, Drama, Economics, English,
         Environmental Science, Family Studies, French, Geography, Graphic Arts and Design,
         Health, History, Home Economics, Information Technology, Languages, Mathematics,
         Music, Physical Education, Physics, Political Science, Technology Education, Theatre
         Arts, Visual Arts.

To be admitted to courses in French second language education, students must possess a high
level of French competency. Students must provide evidence of this competency in one of the
following ways: a) francophone applicants must provide a copy of their diploma showing
graduation from a francophone high school or university; b) non-francophones from New
Brunswick must provide a copy of an Oral Proficiency Interview certificate with a minimum
level of Advanced. Non-francophones from other provinces or countries must provide
comparable evidence or arrange for the Oral Proficiency Interview prior to admission to the
French second language education courses.

The New Brunswick Department of Education requires that all BEd students entering schools
(for field studies or individual course requirements), must provide evidence of a Police
Background Check. Students are responsible, at their own expense, to have evidence of the
Police Background Check available to present to school officials. Students should apply for a
Police Background Check in their area of residence before attending the U.N.B. faculty of
Education.

Costs

In addition to those costs listed in Section C of this Calendar, students are responsible for all
travel and accommodation costs related to the required student teaching experiences
throughout the entire concurrent BEd or consecutive BEd programs.

The Faculty of Education may make arrangements at a limited number of faculty approved
locations for students seeking out-of-province Field Studies Practica. Students undertaking
out-of-province placements will be assessed an out-of-province intern differential fee of
$500.00. Further information is available from the Department of Field Studies.

Field Experiences Placements and Practicum (Student Teaching)
Undergraduate Calendar Proof
2007-2008
The Faculty of Education places students in school settings subjest to approval by the
University and in cooperation with the public school system.

   a.   In order to complete the BEd degree with a recommendation for New Brunswick
        Teacher Certification, a student must successfully complete both Placements I and II (
        ED 4001 and ED 4002 ; or ED 4003 and ED 4004 ) and the Practicum ( ED 5000 )
        required in the program. For concurrent students the second one week placement ( ED
        4004 ) will take place at the end of the last Winter term before the individual‟s
        internship; the first one week placement ( ED 4003 ) will take place at the end of the
        previous Winter term. The Field Studies placements and practicum are evaluated on a
        pass/fail basis. If an intern is removed from ED 5000 by the Faculty of Education a
        grade of NCR will be assigned. (A grade of „W‟, withdrawal, shall not be assigned after
        this point.)

   b.   In their field experiences students participate in teaching and learning activities in an
        educational setting approved by the faculty. Responsibility for arranging and approving
        student teaching placements and practica rests within the Faculty of Education.

   c.   Before entering the 15 week Field Studies practicum, prerequisites must be met (see
        course: ED 5000 ) .

   d.   Students admitted to the BEd degree program who do not wish to qualify for a New
        Brunswick Teacher's License will normally be required to substitute approved credit
        hours in courses other than the practicum.

   e.   With the approval of the Dean of Education, courses other than the practicum may be
        taken to meet degree requirements provided the student authorizes the Dean in
        writing to recommend to the provincial licensing authorities that a New Brunswick
        Teacher's License not be granted to the student upon completion of the BEd program.
        Any later request for registration in the Practicum must be submitted in writing to the
        Dean of Education. In such cases there is no obligation on the part of the Faculty to
        place the student in an internship at a later date.

   f.   Students are responsible for all travel and living expenses incurred.

   g.   Re-registration
            1. Students who have withdrawn from the Practicum must establish that the
                factors necessitating withdrawal have changed and that there is reason to
                assume that a further attempt would be successful. The request for re-
                registration must be submitted in writing and must satisfy the Dean of
                Education. Any later request for registration in the Field Studies Practicum
                must be submitted in writing to the Dean of Education. In such cases there is
                no obligation on the part of the Faculty to place the student in an internship.

            2. Students who have failed the Practicum (that is, received a grade of NCR)
               must establish that the factors causing the failure have changed and that there
               is reason to assume that a further attempt would be successful. Following
               failure, students will not be permitted to re-register for the practicum until at
               least one full academic year has elapsed. The request for re-registration must
               be submitted in writing and must satisfy the Dean of Education. In such cases
               there is no obligation on the part of the Faculty to place the student in an
               internship.

   h.   Students who apply for the Practicum within 3 years of having completed the BEd
        degree without the practicum normally will be allowed to register for the practicum
        without taking any further courses. If more than 3 years has elapsed, the Dean may
        require specific courses (in subject areas and methodology) to be taken prior to
        registration in the practicum.
Undergraduate Calendar Proof
2007-2008
    i.   Students wishing to be placed in an ESL or French Immersion classroom for their
         internship must have completed a minimum of nine credit hours in second language
         education.

    j.   To teach a subject in middle school or high school during the internship a student
         must have a minimum of nine credit hours of methods in the subject area.

    k.   Any appeal with regard to the final grade or the decision of the Faculty to remove a
         failing student in the Practicum will be considered by the Faculty of Education Field
         Studies Committee. A student may choose a Faculty member to represent her/him on
         the committee. (See also Section B. VIII, Item H: Review of Grades)

NOTE: Consistent with the New Brunswick Department of Education's "Policy 701 on Pupil
Protection," students planning to complete a teaching internship will be required to provide a

BEd (School Years Pattern)
The School Years pattern focuses on all aspects of the education of children between the ages
of 4 and 19, including schooling, community education, family education, and educational
intervention. Particular emphasis is placed upon developmentally appropriate practice, the
integration of subject area content and methodology, and the design of curriculum. The School
Years pattern has the following components.

Core Studies: ED 3021 , ED 3051 , ED 3031 and one course from each of the following areas:
Social, Cultural and Political Contexts of Education and History, Philosophy and Practice of
Education (see listings in the Fredericton Courses Section of this calendar).

Field Services: The school-based experiences component of the BEd program involves 17
weeks of school placements constituting 15 ch. These field experiences involve two weeks of
pre-practicum experiences to be completed before entering the 15 week practicum.

Areas of Study: courses about the teaching of school subjects, enabling teachers to specialize
in particular subjects if desired; courses about particular learner levels; courses which focus
on the integration of subject matter, methodologies, or educational concepts across the
curriculum

Students can focus on a particular learner level or range of learner levels by choosing relevant
courses in designing their BEd program.

Building upon their previous experience and learning, students develop a program of study
which prepares them to meet the responsibilities they will encounter in their professional
careers. This program must be approved by Faculty of Education advisors. Students must
design their program of study in one of two ways:

PROGRAM OPTION 1:

Early Years/Middle Years is designed for prospective teachers who wish to be knowledgeable in
teaching the broad range of subjects reflected in the elementary/middle school curriculum.
Students take the following courses in eight (8) subject areas and should consult with Faculty
Advisors when a specific course is not listed.

    1.   Art Education - ED 3211
    2.   Literacy/Drama Education
    3.   Mathematics Education - ED 3424
    4.   Music Education- ED 3241 or ED 4241

Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language
Program Description

This Certificate Program is designed to provide participants with knowledge and skills
necessary to become effective teachers of English as a second language (ESL). The CTESL

           o ED 4075 - Bilingualism and Education
           o ED 4562 - Advanced Studies in ESL Education
    2. One approved course in the area of language education, cultural studies or literacy,
       and
    3. Practicum in TESL ( ED 5566 or equivalent)

Eligibility

In order to be eligible to enroll in the CTESL, candidates must either have completed an
undergraduate degree or be currently enrolled in a BEd program.

Candidates whose first language is not English must also demonstrate a high level of English
