This course is a clinical experience in secondary education, during spring semester. Student teaching is a full-time (content-specific, in-field), 15-week, directed classroom experience (grades 6-12). Student teachers, under the direction of a mentor teacher, take increasing responsibility for learners and engage in many of the activities that constitute the range of a teachers assigned duties. Emphasis will be placed on working with diverse and special needs learners within the regular classroom, utilizing technology, managing classrooms, understanding assessment, and familiarizing oneself with the school, its resources, and surrounding community. Additionally, interns must attend an on-campus seminar one afternoon per week taught by CSU faculty members and/or resource persons.
