AED 411 - Practicum/Seminar: Elementary School

12 credits
Prerequisites: AED 200, 215, 300, 310, 405; and teaching licensure students must have passed all parts of the MTEL test, both literacy and content area
In this practicum experience, teaching licensure candidates are assigned to a school where they work with and are supported by a Supervising Practitioner.  Under supervision of an assigned university instructor (Program Supervisor), the student conducts art experiences under actual classroom conditions including teaching and classroom management responsibilities.  This practicum is a fifteen-week, full-time classroom experience at the elementary level PreK-8.  A weekly seminar at the University provides opportunity for the student teacher to share insights and concerns.  Students seeking careers other than teaching take this course but are placed in a non-school setting and do not qualify for state licensure.
