EDU 421 - Student Teaching

Credits: 12
Music Education majors are placed in cooperating school districts (K-12) under the supervision of selected music teachers and the Music Education Coordinator. They will have an opportunity to work with each of the following student populations: socioeconomically disadvantaged students, students who are English language learners, and students with disabilities. The supervised student teaching experience requires full-time service for at least 15 weeks to assigned elementary and secondary schools. The assignment is equally divided between settings in pre-kindergarten through grade 6 and grades 7 through 12. Students are required to participate in all related activities such as conferences, meetings, and extra-curricular activities. The required weekly campus seminars focus on the integration of daily classroom observation and teaching experience with current educational theory and practice and the analysis, understanding, and handling of special situations.
