Re: Middle School Praxis Help

    Things may have changed, but I believe that you could take the
    middle grades Praxis in the subject areas that you want to
    teach. For example, you could take the social studies Praxis
    and the language arts Praxis.

    It really just depends on what you want to teach. Many
    principals like for you to be able to teach all four
    subjects, but in my school the preference is on one subject.
    Most, if not all, of our 8th grade teachers are actually
    secondary certified in their subject areas.

    Also, check out how the "highly qualified" stuff plays a part.
    It IS possible to be certified, but not highly qualified.
    You will need to satisfy both requirements.

    A pain. I know.
