EPSY 5705: Clinical: Field Experiences in ECSE or Elementary Special Education Classrooms

1-2 CreditsPracticum

Field experiences (prior to student teaching) meet the requirements set by Minnesota’s Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB). The focus of this course is for initial licensure teacher candidates in the field of special education in preparation for practicing principles required for successful inclusion of students in their least restrictive environment (LRE). Teacher candidates will observe and interact with students with disabilities (license specific) teachers in ECSE and elementary school settings. Consistent with the mission of the College of Education and Human Development and the Special Education Programs, this field experience strengthens effective educational practices, promotes inquiry and problem solving skills, and builds leadership skills for special educators who work with students with disabilities specific to the licensure area. All placements are requested and confirmed by the Field Placement Coordinator in the Special Education Program. Placements are based on licensure program requirements and information (e.g., availability) teacher candidates provide on the Field Experience Placement Questionnaire. Field experiences occur during the regular school day; scheduled between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Schedules vary by school and cooperating teacher. You will receive an email with all placement details once finalized.
