What is the Difference Between Early Fieldwork and Student Teaching?

Early Fieldwork is the observations you conduct at a school site during the first phase of the MS program. If you are on Track A, you would complete early fieldwork during your first program semester. If you’re on Track B, you would complete early fieldwork during the first two semesters of the program. You will be placed with a resident teacher and will observe student learning and teacher instruction, reflect on your observations, connect it to your learning in your coursework, and engage in instructional experiences as directed by your resident teacher.
Student Teaching is a full-time clinical experience at a placement site during the final phase of the MS program. Regardless of track, all candidates complete student teaching during the final semester of the program. During student teaching, you are working alongside a resident teacher who helps you with lesson planning, planning instruction, analysis of student work, etc. You are also assigned a university supervisor who observes you six times throughout the semester.

This is a full-time experience. You will be at your placement site 5 days a week, 6-7 hours a day, for 16 weeks (480-560 hours total) during the the final semester in the program. You do not need to keep track of your student teaching hours using a fieldwork log. Instead, you will go to your placement site each day and sign in at the main office.
