This course is designed for candidates who are student teaching in the fall (rather than the typical student teaching in the spring semester). It provides opportunity for candidates to apply/practice teaching knowledge and skills during a semester without any courses in Education. During the semester following completion of the literacy/mathematics methods sequence (first courses in the spring; second courses in the fall), candidates will take a one credit class which is field based. The practicum will provide candidates with experiences in the classroom in the areas of literacy and mathematics among others. Field experience in local public schools is required. Pre-requisite: Admissions to the Teacher Education Program; EDU 310 and EDU 410.
