ARE 4940: Student Teaching in Art Education University Supervisor : Brenda Springfield Phone +email: 352-316-0243 brendaspringfield@me.com or bspringfield@pky.ufl.edu Office + Hours : Norman 12, by appointment. Description of the Course Supervised teaching involving a period of eleven weeks in an Alachua County public school art classroom. Credits: 11 semester hours. Prereq: Admission into Student Teaching and completion of the Art Education Professional Core Sequence. Coreq: ARE 4934c. Overview of Student Teaching Student teaching is the capstone course of the pre-service art education program. It provides the art education student with an extended opportunity to apply the theoretical, philosophical, practical, and conceptual knowledge gained from previous coursework and field experiences in a real classroom setting under the supervision of a cooperating teacher and university art education professor. Once art education students have successfully completed all their professional course work, they apply for student teaching through the Office of Professional Development and Communication (OPDC) in the College of Education. This application must be completed and submitted by the deadline (which is approximately one month into the semester prior to the one in which student teaching takes place). Student teaching placements are for eleven weeks in one school, providing candidates with the opportunity to gain firsthand experience working with children in the same art classroom over an extended period of time. These placements are made by the University Supervisor for Art Education. A list of students requesting student teaching placements and a list of local art teachers requesting a student teacher is sent to the Art Education supervisor from the OPDC. School sites for these placements are selected based on several factors including: whether the cooperating teacher requesting an intern has taken the required clinical-training workshop; the quality of the art program offered at the school, and the interest of the teacher candidate in working at a particular grade level (elementary, middle school, or high school). While the majority of these placements occur in Alachua County, students may be placed in neighboring counties. Over the course of the internship period, the University Supervisor makes 2-3 formal visits to the classroom for the purpose of observing the student teacher’s performance. These formal evaluations are discussed with the student teacher and suggestions for improvements are offered. In addition, the cooperating teacher formally assesses the progress of the student teacher 3-4 times during the internship and discusses these evaluations along with suggestions for improvement with the student teacher. In addition to enrolling in ARE 4940 Student Teaching, students also take
