The Supervised Practicum is designed to provide teacher candidates with a capstone fieldwork experience in middle school or high school classrooms. Each candidate is supervised by an on-site cooperating teacher and a university supervisor. The candidate is responsible for teaching three classes daily (or the time equivalent) and is at the school for a fourth class period daily (or the time equivalent) for observation and conferencing for a school’s entire semester or track. During the supervised field experience sequence of SED 554 and SED 555, each teacher candidate has experiences teaching English language learners and participates in two or more subject-specific teaching assignments. The SED 555S field experience also supports interns (employed secondary-level teachers who have not yet earned the Preliminary Single Subject Credential) in the Single Subject University Intern Program (SSUIP), a program that leads to the Preliminary Single Subject Credential. It is normally taken in the final semester of the SSUIP. The intern is supervised on site by the university supervisor and supported by a school-based support provider.
