EDUC 6930 Student Teaching Semester in Secondary Schools (6-12)

The purpose of this course is the development of proficiency in the art and science of teaching. Intensive clinical experience (with a minimum of 300 clock hours of classroom teaching) provides opportunities for continued professional growth through the practice of professional ethics, reflective teaching, instructional design, effective classroom management and authentic assessment. Students will attend a series of seminars and conduct an action research project directly related to their teaching assignment. A university supervisor works with a cooperating 6-12 teacher toward the mutual goal of the student's development.
