MAE 701 - Elementary Culminating Fieldwork


Students must be able to devote all work week hours to this endeavor and supplemental employment is strongly discouraged. Student teachers should anticipate working in an elementary school with a mentor teacher. They must also keep in mind that their semester will begin in accordance to their first day of student teaching. This is a continuous, semester-long experience where students gradually assume responsibility of a range of visual art classes in grades K-5, thereby demonstrating the appropriate professional skills and attitudes essential for successful teaching of diverse populations of students. Student teaching is conducted under the supervisory guidance of school mentors and members of the Art Education clinical faculty. The Active Pedagogy seminar will meet once every other week at the Institute. This seminar complements field work and is required. Students will add culminating fieldwork and finalize their digital portfolio as part of their final authentic assessment. Prerequisite(s): minimum 3.4 cumulative GPA; completion of program requirements for Art Education and application approval by the Art Education Director. (6 Credits)
