ED 4913 - Student Teaching: Special Education K-12

Each student seeking certification is involved in a full-time student teaching experience. The student teacher cooperates in all phases of the school’s program: lesson planning, teaching, multidisciplinary teams, development of instructional materials, effective use of educational technology, teachers’ meetings, in-service opportunities, extra-curricular activities, and involvement in student activities. Student teachers follow the calendar of the school to which they are assigned and are expected to participate in all phases of the schools’ activities. Student teachers plan with their cooperating teacher and then develop detailed lesson plans for every lesson taught. A college supervisor will conduct three triad meetings - an initial triad meeting to set expectations, a middle of the semester triad meeting to evaluate progress using the Danielson Pre-service Teacher rubric, and then a final triad at the end to evaluate readiness for student teaching. Those seeking permission to participate in both a general education and special education student teaching experience must demonstrate competence in the elements on Danielson’s rubric and outstanding professionalism and be recommended by their college supervisor to do so. Experiential Component - full-time placement in a school. Prerequisites: Must have completed and passed the Criminal Record Check , must have been accepted in the education major, must have completed all other required courses. No other courses are taken during student teaching.
