  • Which "areas of specialization" exist in the USA? Are there specializations available through further trainings? Is there specialization in the elementary teacher education in the USA?
  • What are the advantages/disadvantages of specialization in both Germany and the U.S.?
  • Without areas of specialization what is a teacher cabable of??
  • How do we decide what to specialize in?
  • Are some subjects more important to specialize in than others?
  • How do we accommodate for our lack of knowledge in areas we are not specialized in?
  • Is there specific training for teachers in Germany to help teachers teach certain subjects
  • What subjects do you teach on a daily basis in Germany


  • Germany looks at specialization as taking classes to specifically teach in certain areas
  • North Carolina, USA looks at specialization in terms of concentration and are extra classes taken in order to be a mini-expert on a subject. This is part of the initial lincensure/teaching certificate.
  • These sorts of international projects can be helpful for all of our future students to engage in. These projects help with global awareness and respect of other cultures.
  • To build our knowledge in the area we are not specialized in there are workshops,classes can be taken, talk to advisors for suggestions, gain knowledge through tutoring.
