CR: 4
Prerequisite: Open only to accepted elementary education majors; permission of the Director of Education; EDUC 103, 104, 133, 211, 245, 325, 327, 331, and 333 and evidence of passing the VCLA, RVE, Praxis Core Mathematics, Reading, and Language Arts (5002), and Social Studies (5004) or Science (5005). This field-based course will include supervised teaching in the PreK-6 classroom for a minimum of 20 hours. Students will explore the ways in which educators organize curriculum around the significant questions students have about their world. By designing authentic place-based investigations, students in this course will weave together the deep knowledge of content, locally relevant information, and authentic skills to create learning opportunities that matter to PreK-6 students, the community, and our collective future. Students will also explore, develop, and implement classroom management techniques that are responsive and relevant to the context in which they teach.
