Practica

Each semester, pre-service teachers in the School of Education (CHS) have the opportunity to be considered for a practicum placement in classrooms at King or Moulton Elementary. ISU students placed in these schools are given additional supports including an introductory orientation before setting foot in the classroom, a video series based on Diversity Pedagogy, an online Discussion Board where they write reflections and self-reflections (on topics such as Ethnic Identity Development, Implicit Bias, Culturally Inclusive Classrooms, etc.), and feedback sessions with cooperating teachers and the ISU 4U Promise Program Specialist at the end.
