EDU 47200 - Preschool Practicum

Student Practicum teaching is defined as a full-day, full-time, school-based experience that is supervised by both a certified experienced teacher and a University Supervisor. The primary objective of student teaching is to provide the teacher candidate the opportunity for acquisition and demonstration of instructional competence. The student teaching experience has been carefully designed to be as realistic and as intensive as actual teaching. This involves placing teacher candidates in schools with carefully selected and qualified Cooperating Teachers. Supervision is regarded as absolutely essential and is a mutual responsibility of the Cooperating Teacher and the University Supervisor, who are proven successful classroom teachers. While all candidates should assume full class responsibilities, the extent and length of actual teacher candidate involvement rest upon the mutual agreement of the candidate, the Cooperating Teacher, and the University Supervisor, who make up the Student Teaching Triad.
