Elementary Education at UVM
Throughout your professional preparation, you will be challenged to link theory with practice while participating in school internships. Professional course work begins during your first year, with an introduction to teaching and learning and how schools interact and impact society. In the second and third years, you'll participate in a sequence of professional courses linked with supervised field experiences where you will observe teachers, document best practices and participate in planning literacy and inquiry experiences for science and social studies. Candidates in initial licensure programs enter the field early and are challenged daily to link theoretical knowledge with professional practice. To accomplish this, candidates work alongside professionals in the field to develop the skills and knowledge needed to enhance learning for all students. These experiences culminate in a full-semester teaching internship during your final year. You will have many opportunities to observe and practice in supervised settings in rural, suburban, and inner-city schools.
