Teacher candidates work to integrate prior coursework experienced into the context of real classrooms. Teacher candidates develop a teaching philosophy and an operational "professional identity." Candidates consider the impact that various factors have on the learning environment, develop teaching strategies that promote active learning and which engage students with diverse abilities, cultures, and ethnicity. Candidates explore methods specific to their subject areas under the additional guidance of the program coordinator. Teacher candidates will engage in preparing for the edTPA. Candidates complete a minimum of 15 hours in the clinical setting completing pre-mini student teaching assignments.
