Classroom Placements

Teacher candidates in both our Concurrent and Consecutive BEd programs are required to complete 88 days of school-based classroom practicum.  Classroom practicum placements occur in a host school at different times throughout the academic year. These schools are defined, in part, by the presence of a pool of committed mentor teachers, a supportive principal and, in addition, a teacher who is articulate about the process of education who acts as a site coordinator. Our program operates in schools with the continuing consent of the board and the staff of the school.
