A K-12 library media education endorsement requires 18 semester hours in library media coursework, to include a library media methodology course, selection of printed and non-printed media to support the instructional program and emerging technology, integration of multiple sources of information media into the learning process, administration, supervision, evaluation, and management of human and media resources, and cataloging and management of information resources. Study in the developmental characteristics of K-12 learners and a practicum, internship, or student teaching inclusive of K-12 learners is required in addition to the 18 hours, if not previously completed. Verified teaching experience in K-12 library media within the five-year period immediately preceding application may be accepted in lieu of the above field experiences at the equivalency of one year’s teaching experience for one semester hour credit for a maximum of three semester hours of the total credit hours required. No state test is required or available to validate this endorsement.
