The University of St. Thomas Teacher Education program utilizes a progression of structured, in-school field experiences to expand the vision and professionalism of program candidates. Field experiences are designed to complement university classroom learning by providing opportunities for candidates to practice the knowledge, skills and dispositions of effective educators across the grade ranges for which they will be licensed and with diverse student populations. The first field experience is a guided, reflective, in-school field experience that provides an opportunity for beginning teacher education candidates to explore schools, education, and teaching as well as their own motivation for choosing the profession of teaching. This field experience focuses on questions that begin a general exploration of the profession: What is a good school? What is a good education? What is good teaching? What filters and assumptions do I use in making these determinations? How can I maximize this opportunity to help me develop as a professional? Co-requisite: TEGR 510

Field experiences are designed to complement university classroom learning by providing opportunities for candidates to practice the knowledge, skills and dispositions of effective educators across the grade ranges for which they will be licensed and with diverse student populations. The second formal field experience is a 30-hour guided, reflective, in-school field experience that focuses on questions involving the exploration of learning and teaching: Who are the learners and how do they learn? In what ways are they diverse? What general approaches can I use to meet each learner's needs? How can I maximize this opportunity to help me develop as a professional? Prerequisites: TEGR510, 511.
