Secondary Student Teaching

EDUC 481 Student Teaching II in the Middle or High School gives the Teacher Candidate the opportunity to apply teaching theory in the classroom and fully participate in a teaching situation under the supervision of a cooperating teacher.

Conferences are conducted with the student teacher, the cooperating teacher and the university supervisor.

Student-teacher placement is done in cooperation with school districts, and, because it is a shared decision, placement is not guaranteed.

A current fingerprint background check clearance; and permission of the School of Education and Psychology is required prior to placement confirmation.

The Teacher Performance Assessment (edTPA) was adopted by the State of Washington as the tool to assess teacher candidates before they are granted their Teacher Certification.

Handbooks and appendices are now available through D2L contact the professor of record for secondary student teaching, Debbie Muthersbaugh, for login information.
