Reading in the Content (SECED) : Teaching Practicum
This senior level course is designed to immediately precede the student teaching semester. It is recommended that students take this course in conjunction with their content and general secondary methods courses. Students are taught assessment first planning and develop the ability to facilitate learning through fostering general and content specific literacy skills. Prospective teachers will continue development of general teaching abilities with a focus on selection and creation of learner appropriate curriculum materials. Practical application of the skills of this and all previous courses are facilitated by 25-30 hours per semester of lab experience in local secondary schools.
