This certificate is appropriate for teachers who teach students ages 7-12 and who know the range of the middle-grades curriculum: language arts, mathematics, science, social studies and history, the arts and health. Some generalists are assigned to teach a single subject, while others are assigned multiple subjects (e.g., humanities teachers or mathematics/science teachers). Some focus on interdisciplinary or cross-disciplinary lessons, while others may use such curricular approaches only occasionally. All generalists, without regard to their assignment, practice in a manner designed to advance student learning in two or more subjects.
