This course is the final special education field experience for students in the Mild/Moderate Education Specialist Preliminary Credential Program. Candidates complete this experience on the job, or with a supervising teacher who serves diverse learners with mild/moderate disabilities. Student teaching consists of one complete semester, full day assignment during which time the candidates gradually assume full responsibility for the complete instructional program if they are not on the job. The candidates are provided supervision and guidance by the supervising teacher or on-site support provider, as well as a University supervisor. The seminar portion of the course (SPED 580S or SED 555S) meets on a regular basis throughout the semester with the University supervisor.
