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 2 classes daily (or the time equivalent) and is at the school for a 3rd 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 555, each teacher candidate has experiences teaching English language learners and participates in 2 or more subject-specific teaching assignments in diverse settings. The SED 555 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.
