Appalachian State University: Bachelor of Science English Education Program


Mission Statement:


            The English Education Program at ASU relies heavily on the National Council of Teachers of English positions and guidelines and builds on the NC Professional Teaching Standards as the framework for the knowledge base, pedagogical skills, and professionalism of our subject-area program. It also aligns itself with the Reich College of Education's beliefs in constructivist teaching, learning and collaboration. Literature, writing, and language are the major divisions that define the English Education major, but inherent in the program is the study of reading, speaking, thinking, media, listening, and appropriate use of technology in support of instruction. English Education at ASU intends to prepare teachers who are broad in their thinking, well versed in their discipline, informed in theory as well as practice, concerned about diversity and community, and reflective in their ongoing professional growth.


Program Goals:

  • To demonstrate broad, in-depth, current knowledge of discipline content, pedagogical practices, and professional development
  • To recognize the value of all students, respond to socio-economic and cultural influences, and implement effective instruction that positively fosters learning by all students
  • To distinguish reading, writing, speaking, listening and viewing skills necessary for effective teaching
  • To develop the ability to analyze student learning, link professional growth to professional goals, and function effectively in a complex, dynamic environment
