This course provides supervised, full-time practice in applying the skills and knowledge learned earlier in the program. Students spend six weeks in their second student teaching placement. Following the school calendar and this structured (3-phase) practicum student teachers gradually assume the responsibilities of a teacher. Students are placed either in an urban or suburban/rural school in a situation consistent with the level(s) and subject field(s) of their certificates and in a setting complementary with the setting of their first placements in the co-requisite course (LAI 668). They work with New York certified teachers in the schools assigned and are mentored by a student teaching supervisor from the university. In a further co-requisite course (LAI 674) the students meet weekly to discuss their experiences and to learn additional content related to professional teaching. Prerequisite: Admission to the Teacher Education Institute and Permission of Instructor. Prerequisite(s): Co-requisites: LAI 674 and LAI 668.
