EDU 950 - Student Teaching I

Course unit(s): 1
Prerequisite(s): Admission to the professional semester.
Student teaching is the core component of the professional semester.  As interns in the public schools, students have the opportunity to apply the content knowledge and pedagogical skills gained in their academic preparation to actual classroom situations.  Lesson and unit planning as well as assessment and classroom management skills are honed with the support of a mentor teacher and a college supervisor.  Daily seminars prior to student teaching focus on differentiated instruction, questioning strategies, lesson planning, meeting the needs of a diverse public school population, and strategies to enhance student motivation.  Weekly seminar sessions during the semester provide the student teachers with a forum to reflect analytically on their classroom experiences as they develop their professional skills and voice.  This semester consists of two full-time teaching experiences in grade levels appropriate to the area of certification.
