Practicum 5-12 (2 credits; fall for graduate students; spring for four-year students)

CFA AR 366

This secondary practicum offers an opportunity for art education majors to student teach grade levels 5-12. The student collaborates with the Head of the Art Teacher and Museum Education program to identify a certified visual arts cooperating teacher in a Boston metropolitan area school where student teaching will be completed during eight consecutive weeks. A supervising teacher, assigned by the program Head, visits the student teacher to make four or more official visits. Three visits are for the purpose of formal observations. The third and final observation also includes an evaluation with comments from all three participants in the process: the student, the cooperating teacher, and the supervising teacher. Paperwork is generated that will be filed by the University and sent forward to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education that documents the fulfillment of requirements that may lead to teacher certification. The first two weeks of the practicum consist of aiding and observing the cooperating teacher and other teachers in the school. During the second two weeks of the practicum, the student assumes one-third of the cooperating teacher's full responsibilities. The third two weeks of the practicum the student teacher assumes two-thirds of the cooperating teacher's full responsibilities. The student teacher assumes all responsibilities assigned to the cooperating teacher during the final two weeks of the practicum. 300 clock hours are required; 150/300 hours the student teacher must be fully responsible for studio teaching.
