EDUC 460M - Student Teaching Residency I - PBC (Cr. 3)
Designed for undergraduate alternative certification candidates. Director of Student Teaching determines school schedules. The residency (along with professional development seminars) includes opportunities to synthesize content from all previous coursework, including professionalism; designing, implementing, and assessing instruction; student motivation and engagement; and collaboration with colleagues and families. The teacher candidate is an active participant in the school community through close observation of the mentor teacher, collaborative practice with the mentor teacher, and/or supervised independent practice. Concepts and skills learned in EDUC 469 (Field Study Project) and EDUC 351 (Educational Measurements) are a particular focus in this residency; however, the resident engages in all content areas.
Student Teaching Residency I (EDUC 460M) and Student Teaching Residency II (EDUC 461M) must be taken in consecutive semesters.
Prerequisite(s): EDUC 499; passing scores on required Praxis content exam and Praxis Principles of Learning and Teaching exam; and permission of department head.
Field Experience Per Bulletin 996, candidates must spend a minimum percentage of the residency school site’s instructional time each week engaged in residency activities. The term “instructional time” for the purpose of the residency is based on the start and dismissal times for PK-12 students at the school in which the residency is occurring. Percentage requirements vary by program.
