EDUC 449 - Early Field Experiences in Teaching Social Studies Grades 6-12 (WI)

Credits: (3)
Prerequisites: Admission into the Teacher Education Program for licensure in middle school or secondary Social Studies teaching.
Corequisites: EDUC 459 .
This field experience is taken in conjunction with the methods course EDUC 459 Methods for Social Studies 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 social studies provide teacher candidates with opportunities to become acquainted with the classroom and the many roles of the social studies teacher. Teacher candidates will attend a public school during the course of the semester where they will 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.
