Candidates complete this experience on-the-job or with a supervising teacher who serves diverse learners with moderate/severe 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 and a University supervisor. The seminar portion of the course meets one to two times per month with the University supervisor.
