[EDYS 303] Student Teaching in Middle School
Students will participate in an 18-week, full-time teaching experience in a middle or intermediate school with responsibilities for lesson planning, teaching, and evaluation, in addition to parent-teacher conferences, department meetings, and extracurricular activities. A cooperating teacher in studentsâ€™ respective disciplines and a Beloit College supervisor will mentor students to help develop professional teaching habits and evaluate student teaching progress. Students will meet as a group at least once monthly on campus to discuss teaching experiences, and to work on edTPA [Teacher Performance Assessment]. Successful submission of edTPA, as well as passing scores on other tests required by the Department of Public Instruction, are required for certification in Wisconsin. Students may complete student teaching locally or petition to teach elsewhere.
