EDU 466 - Observation and Student Teaching at the Childhood Level


A structured college-supervised teaching experience is provided in selected elementary schools at grades 1 through 3 and 4 through 6. Teacher candidates will have the opportunity to assume increased responsibilities for instruction, consistent with higher educational standards, conduct assessments, develop classroom management skills and perform other related duties for students in classrooms having diverse needs. This field experience is an integral part of the professional education curriculum and allows candidates to demonstrate competence in the professional roles for which they are preparing. Applications for enrollment must be submitted to the Education Department by September 30 in the Fall semester, for Spring term enrollment, and February 1 of the Spring semester, for Fall term enrollment. A minimum of 15 weeks of full-time practice teaching and observation is required under the direction of the student teacher supervisor and the cooperating teacher(s).
