The State of Michigan has standards from which the Unit derives the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to be demonstrated by teacher education candidates. Among these standards are: The Michigan Entry-Level Standards for Teachers The Michigan Standards and/or Rules for College/University Teaching Endorsement (Content) Approvals The Michigan Tests for Teacher Certification (MTTC), e.g., Basic Skills Tests, Michigan Content Endorsement Test Objectives (e.g., teachable majors/minors), Content Certificate Endorsement Tests The Michigan K-12 Curricular Frameworks and Benchmarks The Michigan Standards for Teaching and Learning The Michigan Certification Rules, (e.g., General Education for Provisional Certificate, Professional Studies for the Provisional Certificate, Professional Education Certificate) 1.1B Northern Michigan University Unit’s Rubrics: Content, Professional/Pedagogical Knowledge, Skills, and Dispositions The following table presents the Professional Education Unit’s summary of the Michigan Entry-Level Standards for Teachers. Per the Michigan State Department of Education, Entry- level Standards encompass and embrace standards developed by the Interstate New Teachers Assessment Support Consortium (INTASC), see Exhibit # 1.1. The Michigan Standards function as rubrics to guide: 1) the development of the Unit’s teacher education programs; 2) the evaluation of programs; 3) the evaluation of teacher education candidate’s performance as they progress through the program to completion; 4) the development of the Northern Michigan University Teacher Induction/Mentoring Program for the Upper Peninsula; and 5) the link to the Conceptual Framework (e.g., subject matter as a medium [2.0 below]).
