What it means to be a teacher…
ITE 316: Field Experience, aka Get Schooled
Summer 1 (3-week intensive, May 22 – June 9)
ITE 316 is a 3-credit course with an Oral Communication Focus designed to provide students with the opportunity to spend time in a school working with children or teens. While observing and assisting a mentor teacher in elementary (K-6), secondary (6-12) or special education, students will develop a general understanding of what it means to be a teacher, the work that it entails, and its rewards. Students will accumulate more than the 40 hours of supervised group leadership field experience as required by College of Education elementary and secondary teacher licensure programs prior to application.
This course provides the trifecta in feeling good. Students can feel good about spending time in a classroom, helping a teacher. They can also feel good about making a difference in a child’s life. And best of all, they can feel good about getting credit for it.
Fulfills the general education requirement: FGB
