Pre-Student Teaching Clinical Experience II/ Applied Practice in English Language Arts

Indiana University of Pennsylvania

CRSE Competencies 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9

Course Description

This course prepares candidates for field experiences in secondary English language arts. Students develop skills for school-site observations, are introduced to models of classroom management, and receive instruction about completing the Step 2 electronic portfolio requirement. The course provides opportunities for students to apply understandings of pedagogical content knowledge to observation and lesson design and to familiarize themselves with teacher research methodology.

Why was this course your focus?

“This is the fall clinical course that typically precedes spring student teaching, and part of the course is the fall semester of their yearlong field experience. This course is a shared requirement across programs (all programs must have a second clinical experience before student teaching), but there is considerable latitude in course requirements. I took over this course for our program a couple of years ago, so I have been actively iterating each year since. Last summer I spent some time thinking about how to more explicitly integrate the CRSE Competencies into the course. As part of this revision, this year was the first year I added portions of Hollie’s book Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Teaching and Learning, along with a modified project where TCs use Hollie’s model to reflect on their cultures. All of my work on the course before the CRSE Community of Practice had been on assignments and course texts, so I was interested in the opportunity to reflect on the syllabus itself as its own document.”
