Practicum: Teaching-Secondary

This course is held on-site at the local high schools. Candidates are involved daily for one public school period at the placement site if in traditional scheduling. If the student is in a school with block scheduling, the student attends every other day. Each candidate is assigned a cooperating teacher.

Students have opportunities to plan and teach, assist, and observe during the semester. Supervision is a shared responsibility between the cooperating teacher and the college supervisor (course instructor).

The cooperating teacher supervises every teaching and assisting experience. The college supervisor visits a minimum of once a week when the candidate has teaching responsibilities. Candidates meet weekly with their cooperating teacher. Candidates meet with the college supervisor in seminar, small group, and individual conference settings.
