The Middle Childhood Generalist (MCG) Endorsement allows the teaching candidate with two licensure areas to add either one or two more content areas specifically for teaching in a self-contained 4th, 5th, or 6th grade classroom. This endorsement is not valid for holders of any license other than Ohio Middle Childhood Education. Updates and/or changes to licensure are dictated by the State of Ohio and may supersede the requirements listed for licensure in the catalog.
To have the MCG endorsement added to the MCE license:
The candidate must have previously completed a MC Education program in two content areas and hold a valid MCE license (we will assume that our initial licensure candidate will apply for the endorsement along with, or soon after application for the initial license in two areas); and
In addition to successfully completing the MCG Endorsement course work in either one or two additional areas, the candidate must also successfully complete the required test(s).
Either the candidate must pass:
A.) OAE Education (Subtest I)/018 and OAE Elementary Education (Subtest II)/019
B.) Content area test for each content area added to MCE license:
OAE MS English/Language Arts (028)
OAE MS Mathematics (030)
OAE MS Social Studies (031)
OAE MS Science (029)
