Student Teaching

Student teaching consists of two semesters of classroom experiences during which the student is assigned to a state approved school that cooperates with Linfield College in teacher preparation. The student teacher shares the teaching role with a classroom teacher and completes a work sample at each level of authorization. Part-Time Student Teaching is a four-credit course taken concurrently with designated teaching methods courses and Seminar for Part-Time Student Teaching. Full-Time Student Teaching is a twelve-credit course that is taken concurrently with Seminar for Full-Time Student Teaching, the only other course that may be taken during this semester. Students in both Part-Time and Full-Time Student Teaching are supervised weekly by college faculty. Students must provide their own transportation to their assigned schools.

 

PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
