Student Teaching Semester
Last Updated on Friday, 11 October 2013 18:18
During the Student Teaching Semester you are placed in an El Paso area school under the supervision of a Cooperating Teacher for five days a week. You also take SCED 3317 Multicultural Education in the Secondary School at UTEP in the evenings or on Saturdays. The Student Teaching Semester is your last semester before you graduate. Because of your commitment to the classroom, you usually are unable to take any additional courses at UTEP. Part of your final course grade for your student teaching is based on your having passed your qualifying exams. For more information see the Qualifying Exam page.
*Students who take and pass their qualifying AND state certification exams before the end of their student teaching are eligible for a one-time rebate from CASE, while supplies last. Please see your CASE advisor or see the information under the Qualifying and Student Teaching semester tab on this website.
Do I get to choose where I do my student teaching?
We have a system of preference for student teachers. You will be given an opportunity to choose an area of the City that you prefer. We make every effort to accommodate your choices. However, it is important that you keep in mind that the quality of the placement and availability of placements takes priority over the convenience of the location.
Student Teaching is Monday through Friday for 15 weeks from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. You cannot leave your student teaching to take a course. Please plan accordingly.
