This one-credit practicum gives students the opportunity to observe primary classrooms during the Fall semester prior to full-day student teaching the following spring. In addition, there is a strong focus on discussing and analyzing their classroom experiences and learning how to write lesson plans. Because it is taken during the same semester as all primary methods, students will develop understandings of effective classrooms across content areas.
