Field and Clinical Experiences

Fieldwork hours are designed to improve students’ observational and instructional skills in preparation for student teaching and practicum experiences. The courses listed below will require completion of fieldwork hours. The course instructor will provide guidelines for the field
experience.

  • CEDF 709: Child Development (5 hours)
  • CEDC 704: Teaching Developmental Reading (10 hours)
  • CEDC 705: Mathematics Curriculum and Methods (10 hours)
  • CEDC 700: Effective Teaching Practices (5 hours)
  • CEDF 710:  Educational Psychology (5 hours)
  • CEDC 715FW: Fieldwork in Reading and Social Studies (75 hours)

 All fieldwork will take place in a Hunter College selected site.  A guidebook of cooperating schools will help our students to find placement for their fieldwork hours.  Students in CEDC 715FW, however, will be placed by the Fieldwork Coordinator in a school for this requirement.
