Clinical Practice 1 is a developmental sequential set of activities that afford the candidate the opportunity to integrate and apply theoretical and pedagogical coursework and reflect on the Teaching Performance Expectations (TPEs). The candidate is supervised by district employees and individuals in the teacher preparation program who provide formative and timely performance feedback. The clinical sites (schools), Cooperating Teachers (district-employed supervisors) and University Mentors (program supervisors) are chosen based on criteria outlined by the CTC. This course is taken concurrently with EDUC X301.

EDUC X311 (OR NSED 120) | CLASSROOM INTERATIONS
This course serves as an introduction to the educational aspects in a multicultural and multilingual diverse society. This course continues the process of preparing students to teach mathematics and science in middle and secondary settings by providing opportunities to evaluate challenges they face in instructional settings. We focus on students coming from a diverse society with different culture and linguistic background. We will explore frameworks for thinking about equity issues in the classroom and beyond school settings, learn strategies for teaching students of diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and reflect on how the interplay among teachers, students, and academic content enable students to develop a deep conceptual understanding of the subject matter. Classroom Interactions is a course that typically is a pre-requisite to an accredited teacher credential program.
