EDU 578 Student Teaching, 12 credits

The culminating activity of the university's graduate education program for candidates seeking certification is the student teaching experience. This experience places students (all majors) in classroom situations where they complete their development as teachers by demonstrating their abilities to fully function as classroom teachers. Student teachers spend the first half of the student teaching semester in one setting and the second half in another. In each placement, student teachers work under the guidance and supervision of master teachers and university supervisors.
