PK12-GEOHS

Geography - Honour Specialist

This leadership course in Geography is designed to address the current trends in education that should enhance all geography programs from Intermediate/Senior grades through to graduation.

The emphasis is on curriculum development that encompasses co-operative learning, seminar presentations, and independent presentations. The course emphasizes the examination of integrated units of study, leadership skills, individual student differences, as well as assessment and evaluation strategies.

    Must be a registered member of the Ontario College of Teachers.

Courses required for teaching certification or additional teaching qualifications cannot be used for this requirement. Please note this includes all undergraduate programs/courses at all institutions.

  3. Certificate of Teaching Experience:
    Evidence of at least two (2) years of successful teaching experience, including one (1) year of experience in the subject area in which the Honour Specialist qualification(s) is being sought. This experience must be certified by the appropriate Supervisory Officer on the OISE Certificate of Teaching Experience Form.

    • For a single Honour Specialist, proof of successful completion of 9.0 university degree credits or the equivalent in the subject in which the Honour Specialist qualification is being sought with an overall average of at least a "B" or "70%" (please note: 1.0 university degree credits is the equivalent to 1 full year course or 2 half-year courses.)

    OR

    • For a combined Honour Specialist, proof of successful completion of 14.0 university degree credits or the equivalent in the 2 subjects in which the combined Honour Specialist qualification is being sought, including no fewer than 6.0 university degree credits or the equivalent in each subject. Each subject area must have an overall average of at least a "B" or "70%". Both of the Honour Specialist courses in the combination must be successfully completed before the qualification will be recommended to the Ontario College of Teachers to be added to the Certificate of Qualification.

PLEASE NOTE: For a combined Honour Specialist, proof of teaching experience is only required for the Honour Specialist subject that is completed first.

Applicants who have applied for a single Honour Specialist but who do not meet the prerequisites may also be considered for a combined Honour Specialist. It is OISE's practice to process an application for one of the combined subjects, and to advise the applicant accordingly.
