EDUC 493

Teacher Research Practicum

This is a required, school-based placement that students typically take in their senior year. Students are placed in classrooms with a teacher who is examining a "problem of practice". Students assist the teacher by gathering data related to the teacher's question(s), analyzing the data, and presenting what they find to the teacher. The School of Education builds off of decades of contacts with local districts to individually tailor placements. Students meet on a regular basis to discuss their placements and their work in the schools.
