Course Description

The practicum is a minimum of 12-weeks in a school setting and takes place after all coursework is completed. Practicum can take place in the middle or high school depending on the subject area of licensure. Massachusetts' Department of Elementary and Secondary Education requires that a preservice teacher complete 300 hours of student teaching with 100 hours of full teaching responsibility in an approved school setting. Students are matched with experienced and licensed teachers who alongside a university supervisor evaluate the students performance, provide feedback, support and mentoring. Students return to campus biweekly to attend a practicum seminar that focuses on CAP (Candidate Assessment of Performance).
