Students must complete ENGL 350 and ENGL 352 before they may student teach.
For their student-teaching semester, students must register for both EDUC 346 and ENGL 359 .
Before being considered for a student-teaching placement, students must pass (80% or better on each section) all sections of the English Department Screening Exam. They must pass all five sections of the exam by October 1 of the calendar year immediately prior to their student-teaching semester. To take this exam, students must make an appointment with the English Department administrative assistant. Students have four chances to take the exam per calendar year, and they must allow at least two weeks to elapse between the time they try the exam once and the time they try it again.
Additional criteria for approval for student teaching are found in the Teacher Education Program Guidebook, available in the Education Department.
