Bachelor of Education

A Bachelor of Education is a graduate professional degree which prepares students for work as a teacher in schools, though in some countries like Tanzania and various other countries, additional tasks like field work and research are required in order for the student to be qualified to teach. In the United States and Canada, this degree is awarded for coursework completed within a programme lasting one to five years, depending on the requirements established by the place where the province or state in which the university is located. In Canada, a B. Ed. degree is required for teaching certification. A B. Ed. programme may have direct entry from high school. A good rapport or previous experience with young children or teens is a desired characteristic of applicants. There are several streams to a Bachelor of Education, each corresponding to the particular level of instruction. In the United States, this includes elementary school education, middle school education, high school education. Students in the elementary education stream study for a Liberal Studies degree.

In the high school stream, the student specialises in one to two subject areas. Upon completion of the degree, they will prepare and sit for the state's Board of Education certification examination. A typical B. Ed. program may include coursework in pedagogy, educational psychology, educational policy and leadership, curriculum development. In Australia, a 4-Year Bachelor of Education degree combines practical/pedagogical study with a Major sequence in the academic discipline of Education. In the majority of Australian universities, there is 2 distinct types of the Bachelor of Education: Primary and Secondary; the subjects and degree programs are quite different in both degrees e.g. for a student studying the Bachelor of Education the focus of their degree would lie in behaviour, basic literacy, how children learn etc. For a student studying the Bachelor of Education they would therefore be teaching 11- to 18-year-old adolescents and their programs would have less focus on those kinds of areas by the Primary degree.

Instead, the degree is based around the student's intending teaching subjects. In NSW, these teaching areas provide the major focus for their degrees in their final years, they consist of: English, Science, History, Business Studies, Legal Studies, Society & Culture and Languages. The longer duration of the course allows for more practical experiences and greater personal or professional development before teaching service. Most Australian State Teacher-Certification bodies require either a Bachelor of Education, or a bachelor's degree in one or two subject areas, with a Graduate Diploma in Education as a minimum. A B. Ed. is not to be confused with the lesser degree Bachelor of Teaching, an'End-On' course similar but longer than a Graduate Diploma in Education. A Bachelor of Education is given to teachers. Though this degree does not stop Early Childhood teachers teaching students who are older in Primary school, this degree is still equivalent to a Bachelor of Education Primary and noted as a "specialty" in Early Childhood.

As of 2017 all teachers must sit the LANTITE exam to gain their registration and prior to their 16th unit of study undertaking. However, in special circumstances this exam can be wavered and granted a passing grade for the select student. Prior to 2016 the Graduate Diploma of Education was no longer accredited, as the label Bachelor of Education is now the complete title; as of 2012 Early Childhood Teachers are required to learn the EYLF a framework, based on theoretical practice and holistic teaching methods for ages birth to five years old. In Queensland there is a framework more used called QKLG, based off the EYLF and used to teach children ages 3-6 Note: In Australia, the term Undergraduate Degree is used to describe all degrees undertaken by a first-time university student and no pre-requisite tertiary level studies are required just the completion of Secondary High School. Postgraduate degrees are used to describe the degrees completed with an Undergraduate degree as pre-requisite. In Bangladesh, Bachelor of Education is an undergraduate professional degree for Hons. and Diploma in Education offered by the authorized Teachers Training Institutes or colleges for those aimed their profession as a teacher or as an education and curriculum specialist or as an educationalist in the government and non-governmental educational institutes or any educational organizations such as Save the Children, UNICEF, United Nations Development Programme, BFES, SSUF, ASA etc.

B. Ed. degree is mandatory for the teaching profession in both of primary and Secondary school level. Without teaching profession, if anyone wants to go other professions such as education & curriculum specialist, administrator etc. in any educational or other sectors, he/she must have the minimum qualification of Hons. Graduation degree in education; every year many talent Hons. Graduate students from this subject get international scholarship from well known universities of other c

West Tennessee

West Tennessee is one of the three major regions of the state of Tennessee. The region includes 21 counties west of the Tennessee River, it consists of flat lands that have rich soil and vast floodplain areas for the Mississippi River. Of the three regions, West Tennessee is the most defined geographically, it is bounded by the Mississippi River and the western Tennessee River Valley and is the lowest-lying of the three divisions. This region's boundaries have been expanded to include all of Hardin County, bisected by the Tennessee River; the states of Kentucky and Mississippi provide the respective northern and southern boundaries, with the exception of a portion of Lauderdale County, which lies southeast of Hardin County. As part of the Mississippi River basin, West Tennessee enjoys rich soil that led to large-scale cotton farming during the antebellum period and remains agriculturally significant today; the Grand Divisions, consisting of West Tennessee, Middle Tennessee, East Tennessee, are legally distinct.

The earliest mention of this comes in the 1835-36 Acts of Tennessee, which states that the Supreme Court would hold one session each year in East Tennessee, Middle Tennessee, West Tennessee. According to the State Constitution, no more than two of the Tennessee Supreme Court's five Justices can be residents of any one Grand Division and the Supreme Court rotates meeting in courthouses in each of the three divisions; the Supreme Court building for West Tennessee is in Tennessee. Similar rules apply to certain other state commissions and boards, as well, to prevent them from showing any geographical biases. In 1883 when the federal government established time zones, a further division emerged as most of East Tennessee became part of the Eastern Time Zone while the rest of the state was assigned to Central. Though some counties on the borders change sides, the divisions remain a key part of what makes Tennessee unique. West Tennessee is smaller in land area than the other two Grand Divisions; as of 2016, estimates indicate that West Tennessee had 1,560,000 inhabitants, a decline of 1,200 residents in the six years since the 2010 U.

S. Census. At the time of the 2000 U. S. Census, West Tennessee had 1,499,802 inhabitants living in its 21 counties, these have a combined land area of approx. 27,582 km². West Tennessee's population was about 26.4 percent of the state's total, its land area is about 25.8 percent of the state's land area. West Tennessee's population density was about 140 persons per square mile at the time of the 2000 United States Census. Of the nearly 1.5 million persons living in West Tennessee at the time of the 2000 Census 650,000 of those lived in Memphis, or about 43.3% of the grand division's population. While the region of Tennessee west of the Tennessee River was, on paper, part of Tennessee at its statehood in 1796, it had been recognized as Chickasaw territory by the 1786 Treaty of Hopewell, it did not come under actual American control until it was obtained in a series of cessions by the Chickasaw in 1818, an acquisition known as the Jackson Purchase, named for Andrew Jackson, one of the officials involved.

The purchase included the westernmost area of Kentucky as well as a part of northern Mississippi. Although the vast majority of the purchases lie in Tennessee, the term "Jackson Purchase" is used today to refer to the Kentuckian portion of the acquisition; this term is somewhat misleading. Jackson, a military officer at the time, was one of several federal treaty commissioners, he did not negotiate the whole land cession, nor was it done in a single treaty. West Tennessee is located within the Mississippi Embayment, part of the Gulf Coastal Plain; because of this, the terrain is flatter than the eastern parts of the state. Areas right along the Mississippi River are located within the alluvial floodplain. However, much of the western counties of the region are protected from flooding by the Chickasaw Bluffs, ridges of loess rising 50–200 feet above the floodplain. Although the land is lower and flatter than Middle and East Tennessee, some hilly terrain exists along the bluffs bordering the Mississippi River and the land bordering the Tennessee River.

Hilly land in these areas is forested. Otherwise, most of the land in West Tennessee is used as farmland; the soil in this part of the state comes from when a prehistoric sea dried up and left sediment in its place. Unlike in the rest of the state, bedrock is buried a few thousand feet below the surface. Several rivers and streams, besides the Tennessee, exist in West Tennessee. All of them were slowly moving swamps or low-gradient meandering streams before nearly all of them were channelized in the 20th century. Rivers that empty into the Mississippi River include the Obion River, Forked Deer River, Hatchie River, Loosahatchie River, Wolf River, Nonconnah Creek. Rivers that empty into the Tennessee River include Beech River. West Tennessee sits on top of an artesian aquifer; this aquifer is the main source of water for Memphis and Shelby County, as well as many other communities. In the Memphis area and areas along the bluffs, the loess and gravel serves as a cap over the sand making up the aquifer.

The rest of West Tennessee serves as a recharge area for the aquifer. This aquifer provides some of the cleanest water in the United States; the entire West Tennessee region the area closes
