EDUC 448 - Early Field Experiences in Teaching Science Grades 6-12 (WI)

Credits: (3)
Corequisites: EDUC 458 .
This field experience is taken in conjunction with the methods course EDUC 458 Methods for Science Instruction Grades 6-12.  The purpose of early field experiences is to provide teacher candidates with real-world perspectives of teaching, learning, and school community while integrating educational theories with practice. Early field experiences in science provide teacher candidates with opportunities to understand the principles of learning, the application of skills in science-specific methodology, effective communication with and among students, the selection and use of materials/technologies, and the evaluation of student performance.  Teacher candidates observe, perform non-instructional tasks, and engage in some closely supervised delivery of instruction. Through regularly scheduled seminar sessions, teacher candidates use an academic lens to reflect upon their observations and contributions within the classroom while considering the early field experience’s impact on their future teaching.

Note(s): Graded A-F (+/-).
