Means of accomplishing learning outcomes:

Field experience is the primary method of instruction. Students are expected to be attentive, participate with their assigned cooperating teachers, and are encouraged to ask questions. Lectures are used to deliver instruction for students to gain instruction to be used in their field experience placements. The lectures will come primarily from the textbook in formats that may include power point presentations, white board illustrations, videos, and web-based technologies. Field experience activities are designed to correlate with the lecture material to aid in student understanding. Homework assignments conducted in the field experiences, are required. Tasks, that vary in content from semester to semester, are also utilized to expand student knowledge and understanding of the course material.
