GED 7885 - Student Teaching Elementary K-6
Elementary student teaching provides preservice educators with experiences to connect theory and practice in the context of a K-12 classroom; instructional planning; and implementation in an assigned learning environment. Preservice teachers’ responsibilities include; longterm planning, implementation of an integrated curriculum, the facilitation of small- and large-group learning, and the development of assessment systems that support the Minnesota graduation standards for K-12 students.
Open only to preservice teachers who have adequate preparation in subject matter; have demonstrated proficiency with regard to the program and Minnesota’s Standards for Effective Practice for Beginning Teachers; have met all program requirements; and, have evidenced fitness for entering the teaching profession. This is graduate level student teaching with graduate level expectations.
Students must attend a student teaching intake session, which takes place in the fall semester. Contact your advisor or the Director of Field and Student Teaching Experiences, for scheduling information.
Concurrent registration in GED 7050 - Student Teaching Seminar (2 credits) and participation in the seminar each week is also required.
