Elementary Certificate Standards

  • These standards are unique.

    • They address a total certification program and are needed to reflect and support Michigan’s K-12 Curriculum Framework; Benchmarks; and Grade Level Content Expectations as well as standards adopted by national professional and specialty area associations.

  • The elementary certificate program standards address what every elementary teacher needs to know about:

    • core content,

    • assessment, and

    • content-specific pedagogy as they teach in self-contained classrooms.
