Pre-Practicum

Fieldwork is a component of most basic Education courses, and culminates in a semester-long practicum at the end of the licensure program.

In most of your pre-practicum field experiences, you will be carrying out assignments - observations, tutorials, small group instruction, lessons and units - linked to curriculum and methods courses in your licensure program. Besides these assignments, though, you will have the opportunity to explore different teaching-learning environments and watch yourself grow professionally as you learn the knowledge, skills and attitudes required of effective educators.

Pre-practicum documentation forms or copies are required to be submitted with the practicum application packet at the time of submission. It is the student's responsibility to keep a copy of the documentation with the instructor's signature or have access to the materials when applying to the practicum.
