Provisions made for the preservice teacher to work with students in varied instructional groupings to apply theory/concepts/strategies related to prior coursework.

Telescoped Practicum: The Practicum Teaching experience at the graduate and undergraduate level is an important component of our Teacher Education Program. The Practicum is best conducted for a full day, during a Fall or Spring semester on consecutive Tuesdays. When this arrangement is not feasible due to a variety of circumstances, the Telescoped Practicum may be approved (ten consecutive days) under certain conditions. The Telescoped Practicum is an exception, not an option, for full-time students. Contact the Field Placement Office for additional information.
