  • The purpose of the practicum is to provide you with a placement in a school with a diverse population.

  • Your field placement is in one elementary school classroom in either Burke or Wilkes County.

  • The CI 3000 portion of the practicum consists of 8 full – days (Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday) and the SPE 3300 portion consists of 4 full – days (Fridays).

  • Bus transportation will be provided for the CI 3000 portion of thus experience.

Emphasis on Diversity

  • Over the course of the program, you should have the following experiences:

    • Diversity in districts for your field placements

    • Diversity in grade levels for your field placements

    • Diversity in working with groups of people based on ethnicity, race, SES, gender, exceptionalities, language, religion, sexual orientation, and geographical area.

Background Checks

  • Conducting criminal background checks on preservice teachers participating in field experiences is a normal procedure for all school systems.

  • Criminal background checks are conducted through the Office of Field Experiences.

  • This process must be completed before you will be assigned a block.

Program Requirements

  • You must maintain a 2.5 GPA.

  • You will not be allowed in any Block II courses without a C or better in each Block I course.

20/20 Program:Service-Learning Project

  • In CI 3000 (Learner Diversity) you will participate in a 10-hour service-learning project.

  • The purpose is to learn how to connect the service that you do to the concepts presented in your Learner Diversity course.

  • This provides you with hands-on experience with the issues that diverse learners face so that you will know how to handle these issues when you encounter them as a teacher.


  • As always you must make an appointment at posted times to meet with your advisor prior to early registration.

  • Greg Galvin, our elementary education program area advisor, is also able to meet with you.

Registration for Block I

    • Schedule of courses

    **YOU NEED TO SCHEDULE SPE 3300 (sections 101-110) and the corresponding field placement (SPE 3300-208) on your own. Be sure to register for the Elementary Education SPE 3300 field placement.

Graduation Check
