What is a field experience?

Posted at 10 a.m. Feb. 2, 2015,

In field experiences courses, students are placed in schools to observe and teach along with attending an on- campus course. Students are required to complete a minimum of three field experience courses which include Methods, Practicum II, and Student Teaching. In the Methods and Practicum II courses, students are assigned to a school where a majority of the time is observing, teaching a few lessons, and aiding in the classroom as directed by the cooperating teachers. Student Teaching is a full-time field experience where students will observe and teach the entire school day over the course of a whole semester. Students must be officially admitted to the Teacher Preparation Program and have successfully applied for student teaching in order to take Practica courses (Methods Practicum and Practicum II) and Student Teaching courses.
