Undergraduate Students

Fieldwork

Adolescent Education undergraduate students complete three fieldwork experiences prior to the student teaching semester. Fieldwork experiences are paired with the following three courses: Adolescent Development, Educational Psychology and Methods II.  For each of the fieldwork courses, students are assigned to a school for one specific day each week for 10-11 weeks (Tuesdays or Thursdays).

Student Teaching

Student teaching is the culminating fieldwork experience. For student teaching, teacher candidates will complete a full semester in either middle school or high school grade levels teaching in their pending certification area, that was not fulfilled during Methods II, for this fieldwork experience. Teacher candidates attend a semester-long seminar which facilitates a meaningful integration of discipline-specific teaching skills in planning, instruction, and assessment. Teacher candidates must have passed the following New York State Teacher Certification Exams: Educating All Students(EAS) ; Content Specialty Test (CST-Content Specific).
