The emphases in C I 495A are on meeting professional expectations of teaching professionals and planning and teaching lessons. Teacher candidates are placed in classrooms in the Central Region of Pennsylvania, which is an area within a 70-mile radius of State College. A university supervisor observes candidates on a weekly basis during this field experience. In addition to the on-going field experience, teacher candidates enrolled in CI 495A meet in weekly seminars. During seminars, candidates are engaged in discussions addressing lesson planning, differentiation of instruction, classroom management techniques, and teacher professionalism.
