EDUC 471 - Seminar-Student Teaching Residency I (Cr. 1)

The Seminar-Student Teaching Residency (STR) I course is coordinated with the EDUC 470 STR I experience. The course offers a series of seminars and workshops on topics that are pertinent to the needs of all teacher candidates. This course provides a forum for students to examine contemporary educational issues and concerns. The focus is on enhancing the candidate’s knowledge of the many factors that impact effective classroom practice and to assist students in developing problem solving skills as they identify issues, research relevant information regarding those concerns, and develop possible venues to address problems. Teacher candidates, district leaders and classroom teachers, and university faculty identify topics. Candidates hone professional problem solving skills through the application of theory to practice as they address hypothetical educational scenarios. Candidates will post information required from each professional development opportunity in their Professional Portfolio.
