EED Candidates for 2018-2019:

Credential courses are sequential, beginning in the fall semester. Attendance is mandatory. On the first day of school for your fall placement site, you will be there full time to observe your mentor teacher begin the school year and establish the classroom environment. For the first eight weeks of fall semester, you will have afternoon-evening courses five days per week (Monday-Friday) and participate at your field site four hours per morning, Monday-Thursday, each week. The last seven weeks of the semester, you will be student teaching full time, integrating theories learned in the course work with your teaching practice and culminating in solo student teaching (five day minimum).

Spring semester course work/fieldwork follows a pattern similar to fall: full-time observation and participation in your second fieldwork placement the first two weeks of January; eight weeks of course work (Monday - Friday) with four hours per morning, Monday-Thursday, per week in your placement, and fourteen (or more) weeks of full-time student teaching, culminating in a two-week (minimum) solo and team teaching to the end of the K-12 school year. Each semester will include a different fieldwork placement. You will enroll in the following courses during the credential year (units in parentheses):

Many candidates find it difficult to hold part-time jobs or take additional course work while in the credential program. Candidates must maintain a “B” average in preliminary credential coursework to remain in the program. To be recommended for a credential, candidates must have no grade lower than a “C-” in a preliminary credential course.

*Please note: Fieldwork extends through mid-June, the end of the K-12 school year. Credential candidates may participate in commencement exercises in May, and then must continue teaching in their fieldwork placement until the end of the public school academic year.
