EDU 308 Field Exp I: Elem/Secondary
This is the first of two field experience courses in which preservice educators gain insight into the realities of teaching with the opportunity to participate in teaching-related activities. This course involves a 40-hour placement in a K – 12 classroom setting. Participation in this learning community provides preservice educators with the opportunity to reflect on instructional strategies, monitor students’ progress, complete daily activities, and be an active participant in the teaching and learning process. Throughout this course, preservice educators also gain an understanding of the Iowa Teaching Standards and Criteria (Standards 1-3) and are taught the UIU Lesson Plan format.
