ESP 642 Student Teaching in Special Education

In Student Teaching, candidates seeking a Special Education P-12 endorsement co-teach with a cooperating teacher in a school special education placement for the required number of days to develop and demonstrate capacities to perform the full-time responsibilities of a teacher and to make a positive impact on student learning. During student teaching, candidates exhibit essential dispositions; demonstrate skill in planning, engagement, assessment, and reflection upon student learning; participate in a learning community; and collect evidence of performance that connects with standards and criteria for pre-service teachers. Through successful completion of student teaching, candidates demonstrate endorsement competencies required for residency teacher certification with a Special Education P-12 endorsement. Candidates seeking an approved second endorsement in this course must also demonstrate competencies of the second endorsement.




Pass state required endorsement test(s) and departmental approval.
