EDUR 6960 Introduction to Teaching and Learning
3 semester hours
This course is for candidates who are employed as full-time teachers either in a private/parochial school or with an emergency permit or intern credential in a public school. This prerequisite should be one of the first courses in the combined Master’s/teaching credential program sequence. Seminars focus on analysis of effective classroom practices and problem solving. Initial on-site assessment will be made by a university supervisor as to professional competency in all phases of the multiple or single subject credential program. Areas for professional growth and development are identified and addressed individually through portfolio assessment. Candidates must submit a school-site supervisor/mentor contract agreement. Additionally, for private/parochial school teachers, this course requires 30 hours of public school observation/participation and a comprehensive journal. Application for fingerprint clearance must be submitted by private/parochial teachers immediately upon enrollment in this course.
Special approval required.
