This course is the final special education fieldwork experience for students in the Moderate/Severe Education Specialist Preliminary Credential Program. 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 candidate gradually assumes full responsibility for the complete instructional program if he or she is not on-the-job. The candidate is 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.
