Overview

Experiential Learning

Field experiences are a key part of your development as a professional educator. As an elementary teacher candidate, you will have at least three extended classroom experiences prior to student teaching. These build sequentially, based on program levels, allowing you to develop and refine your professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions as you progress through the Elementary Education program and prepare for student teaching. You will have an introductory field experience in your first year. 

The student teaching term is 14 weeks long. You can choose to student teach up to 90 minutes from campus in urban, rural, or suburban settings. You also have the option of student teaching in Chicago. 

Service Learning opportunities include facilitating literacy activities with elementary children during your first year Children’s Literature class and working with students during your second year class, Mathematical Thinking.
