Empower yourself to be a 21st-century educator through the Queen’s Honour Specialist English course. In this course, you will learn how to design an adolescent literacy program that will engage learners through the lens of critical thinking. You will critically examine your own bias and pedagogy as you reflect on your skills as a culturally responsive educator who meets the diverse needs of all students. You will create and share curriculum that will enable your students to reach their full potential as globally minded citizens of the 21st century. You will develop your leadership skills and reflect on how to initiate change and approach challenging conversations in your English departments and schools. The course will culminate in you developing an innovative project or collaborative inquiry that will impact student achievement, initiate educational reform, and inspire professional learning communities.

Requirements

Application Requirements

1) OCT MEMBERSHIP

We will use the OCT number you provide during online registration to confirm that your Certificate of Qualifications shows certification in at least two teaching divisions (Primary, Junior, Intermediate, Senior).

2) YOUR ORIGINAL UNDERGRADUATE/GRADUATE UNIVERSITY TRANSCRIPT(S)*

Your transcript(s) must show:

- The equivalent of 9.0 full year undergraduate/graduate courses in this teaching subject with a minimum 'B' average in these courses
- A BachelorÂ’s degree at an accredited university with the equivalent of 20.0 full year courses

3) CONFIRMATION OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE FORM

Signed by a Supervisory Official* from your School Board confirming that you have two years (388 days) of teaching experience since becoming a certified teacher, one year (194 days) of which is in the subject area of this course.

*The Ontario College of Teachers defines "Supervisory Official" as the Superintendent or Assistant Superintendent of the school board for a teacher employed by a Board of Education. A principal or headmaster is not recognized in this capacity. For a teacher employed by a private school, the "supervisory official" is the Ministry of Education official (Education Officer) appointed to your school. For overseas experience the appropriate Supervisory Official is the person your Principal reports to.

Please note that a new form is always required for a Specialist course as experience is course/subject specific.

*If you completed a Queen's undergrad (at any time), or a B.Ed., Honour Specialist, or an Intermediate or Senior ABQ course with us within the last 4 years you are not required to resend your transcripts.

**If you completed a medial degree and do not have a major you may be eligible for a Combined Honour Specialist. Please see our FAQ's or contact us for more information.
