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
Practicum experience for which teaching licensure students are assigned to a school corresponding as much as possible with the student’s own interests. Working with and supported by a cooperating teacher and supervisor from the University, the student is afforded the opportunity to conduct art experiences under actual classroom conditions and responsibilities. This practicum is a fifteen-week, full-time classroom experience at the elementary level N-9. A weekly seminar will be held at school sites for the student teachers to share insights and problems. Students aiming for careers other than teaching take this course but are placed in a non-school setting.
