EDUC 713 - Seminar in Teaching

Credit(s): 3
3 semester hours
Prerequisite(s): Passing score on the CST in the major degree area.

The professional semester is comprised of the student teaching experience and the corresponding seminar. It is considered the capstone course of the graduate education program. Student teaching is based experience that is supervised by both certified, experienced teachers and a college field supervisor. The experience is designed to reflect the reality of the classroom. Candidates who are currently employed in a classroom setting but do not have New York State Initial Certification may use their current job experience to meet part of the student teaching requirements. Candidates will also need to complete 100 hours in the other level of the certificate for which they don’t have experience. The weekly seminar addresses issues relative to the INTASC Standards for Licensing Beginning Teachers. Therefore, pertinent issues and topics related to the expectations expressed in the Standards will form the basis for presentations, group discussions and/or video analysis. Candidates must submit an edTPA examination to Pearson as one of the course requirements.
