This course is designed for those students who are considering a career of teaching in their future whether through an experiential induction programs such as TFA, AUSL Chicago Teacher Residency, Fulbright, AEON Amity, JET, etc. or a traditional post-baccalaureate licensing program of study. Weekly classroom study of the field of education on campus is balanced with a weekly teaching practicum in a P-12 classroom.
