EDUC 360 Practicum II

Practicum II requires you to spend 80 clock hours in one of the surrounding school districts in order to observe an experienced teacher and to teach small student groups so that you get the “feel” of what it’s like to be a teacher. This is excellent preparation for your eventual teaching and allows you to connect the theory of your courses with the real world of teaching. Students will be required to do lessons in small group settings of two or more students. Students are encouraged to do one large group lesson if possible. A lesson or lessons from any of the curriculum areas- math, science, reading, health or PE and social studies is required to be planned and taught in an elementary classroom.
