EDUC 495A Junior Field Experience (1)
This course is designed to provide Elementary Education majors with an intensive field experience that acquaints the student with the "real" world of elementary education in a suburban setting. The experience will be under the direction of a certified elementary teacher in a suburban Harrisburg setting. Students will have an opportunity to actively work at the primary (K-3) and/or the intermediate (4-5) level, and will be directed to accomplish specific field tasks assigned by their course instructors. These tasks are directly related to each course in which the student is enrolled. Students are assigned a university supervisor who observes and consults with the students throughout the experience. Specific activities will vary depending on the grade level and the school district's curriculum. Students are evaluated by both the cooperating teacher and the university supervisor, and the evaluations are based on classroom observations. This course is offered each semester and is required of all students enrolled in the Elementary Education program.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
