The culminating field-based experience for modern language programs leading to teacher certifications. Students must have completed early field-based experiences and all coursework for certification, including any required undergraduate competencies, before taking this course. It is a continuous, full-time (five days per week) experience during which, after a period of structured observation, students gradually assume responsibility for a full range of teaching activities encountered in a school situation, thereby demonstrating the appropriate professional skills and attitudes essential for successful teaching. Teacher candidates pursuing a practicum will maintain and improve upon the full range of teaching activities they practice every day. This course provides an opportunity for demonstrating the appropriate professional skills, attitudes, and dispositions essential for successful teaching. The teaching field experience is conducted under the supervisory guidance of school and clinical faculty. An online seminar compliments the experience. Certification candidates who are not pursuing the M.Ed. must have submitted passing scores on the Praxis I to the College of Graduate Studies office before enrolling. All candidates who will be required to take Praxis II for NH Certification must make arrangements for that testing independently.
