Designed for post-baccalaureate students seeking regular K-8 classroom certification, this course addresses the study of learners, learning theory, and teaching practices within the regular classroom setting.

The course will specifically focus on acquiring and practicing diverse teaching strategies and maximizing learning in inclusive classrooms. Teacher candidates will demonstrate understanding of and skill in addressing individual learning differences, the learning environment, social interactions, assessment, communication, and collaboration.

This practicum includes both virtual and actual classroom based experiences. Offered Fall/Spring. Competencies: PA; DS; DCN; CKS; AGI; PLE; PRC; PEG
