Charleston Southern’s secondary math education program has officially earned national recognition as an accredited program through the National Council of Teachers and Mathematics.

Dr. Kari Siko Walters led the accreditation process and said, “To prove that we have met these, we have to present the data on our students’ performance on their PRAXIS tests (a professional teaching assessment), their course grades, their formal lesson plan that they write, the South Carolina Teaching Standards, a project they do called the Unit Work Sample, another project called the Long Range Plan, and their Clinical Practice Portfolio that they create while they are student teaching. So, it’s a very extensive and detailed report and they are very picky in approving it.”

CSU’s secondary math education program met the standards required by the National Council of Teachers and Mathematics:

  • Content Knowledge
  • Mathematical Practices 
  • Mathematical Content Pedagogy
  • Mathematical Learning Environment 
  • Impact on Student Learning
  • Professional Knowledge and Skills 
  • Secondary Mathematics Field Experiences and Clinical Practice

Secondary math education students prepare a hands-on activity to be used in the classroom and document what it looks like.
