EDU 674 Bilingual Education (BE) Practicum & Supervision- 20 Day

This course provides classroom instruction and field experience for educators of English language learners. It provides a supervised student teaching experience for graduate students who are already certified in an approved area of education (20 day placement ) and for those graduate students who are earning their initial certificat ion in TESOL pre-K-12 (40 day placement). Students are placed in an approved ESL/BE classroom at a grade level appropriate to ensuring they have experience across the pre-K-12 levels. All effort will be made to place those students already holding an early childhood or childhood certificate in a middle school or secondary school (grades 5-12) and students already holding a middle school or adolescent certificate in an elementary school setting (grades K-6). The field placement shall be for five days per week until your placement requirements have been fulfilled. This means for those students with prior certification, a 20 day placement is required. For those with no prior teaching certification, a 40 day placement is required. Classroom theory is applied to field practice. Students will be observed by a field supervisor a minimum of two times for a 20 day placement and three times for a 40 day placement.
