EDUC 463 Multi-Age Professionalism in Practice: Pre-Student Teaching 3 sem. hrs.
The pre-student teaching seminar has two components: a fieldwork component and a seminar component. In fieldwork, candidates are assigned to a school setting (where their student-teaching clinical will be performed) under the supervision of a cooperating teacher. This experience will provide the candidate with the opportunity to become familiar with the role of the physical educator and the dynamics of the gymnasium. The course consists of the completion of 60-hours of field experience including two videotaped lessons and reflections. The candidate will thus gain an understanding of instructional planning, teaching strategies, educational technology, classroom management, diversity and how NASPE and NCATE standards are implemented into the physical education curriculum. The second major component of the pre-student teaching experience will be completion of an "Impact on Student Learning Project" utilizing students at the pre-clinical site. In the seminar component, candidates will have the opportunity to discuss and evaluate with their peers the gymnasium/classroom interactions that they have observed, as well as the interrelationship of teaching/learning theory and practice. Candidates will also be guided through the final stages of developing their professional portfolio. The two components of the course will help candidates learn: (1) gymnasium/classroom observation and lesson planning skills; (2) ways to design, implement, and assess individual, small group, and whole class activities; and (3) how to explore their individual instructional strengths in preparation for their student-teaching clinical experience. All coursework must be successfully completed in order for student-teaching to occur the following semester). Offered fall and spring semesters
