TED640B Student Teaching II

Course Description

A continuance of TED 640A, and as such, continues to focus upon the practice and development of teaching skills in the classroom in a full day, eight-week term at a school site. Elementary education candidates continue to meet the requirements of the Teacher Performance Expectations as they are mentored by a university supervisor and a master teacher at the school site. Students continue to attend the seminar coincidentally with the student teaching experience. Grading is by S or U only.
