In this practicum experience, teaching licensure candidates are assigned to a school where they work with and are supported by a Supervising Practitioner. Under supervision of an assigned university instructor (Program Supervisor), the student conducts art experiences under actual classroom conditions including teaching and classroom management responsibilities. This practicum is a fifteen-week, full-time classroom experience at the elementary level PreK-8. A weekly seminar at the University provides opportunity for the student teacher to share insights and concerns. Students seeking careers other than teaching take this course but are placed in a non-school setting and do not qualify for state licensure.
