The first part of this essay summarizes major points about those teaching techniques, and the second part focuses on how to develop both students’ active and passive vocabulary as to me, this is a field in teaching which I have not paid enough attention to.
Field Experiences and Student Teaching ..
The Division of Education has a two-semester clinical approach that takes place during the senior year: pre and student teaching. The candidate is normally in the same placement for both semesters. Pre-student teaching involves 60 hours of field work which allows the candidate to get to know their cooperating teacher, students, and the school culture. The candidate must pass pre-student teaching with a B- or better to proceed to student teaching. The clinical experience (14 weeks) is progressive until the candidate is ready to assume all instructional responsibility and is closely monitored by the assigned cooperating teacher and university supervisor. All lessons taught by the candidate must follow the school district's curriculum, the Ohio Educator Standards, and the Common Core Standards to ensure that students are being taught accurate and appropriate content. Candidates receive a mid-term and final evaluation during student teaching and must earn a B- or better to successfully complete this capstone experience.
