MSC440: Practicum in Secondary Education

3 Credit(s)
This course provides a 60-hour practicum experience prior to student teaching. Extensive experience in the classroom is critical to the professional development of teachers.  The goal of this course is to help music educator candidates integrate formal course work, educational theory, and the Professional Teaching Standards with real teaching experiences in music.  The practicum provides an opportunity for music educator candidates to become familiar with their cooperating teachers, the students, the classroom environment, and school policies prior to the student teaching experience.  Students will apply teaching skills specific to placement level and develop a unit of study to implement during the student teaching experience.  This course will also address candidates’ concerns regarding school policies and procedures, lesson planning and classroom management.
