Special Programs


Teaching & Learning Collaborative

Spend a full year (fall and spring semesters) in an urban school district for both your final practicum and student teaching!


  • Be mentored by the same cooperating teachers and the same university supervisor as you learn about teaching in an urban setting.
  • Teachers in these districts receive training in how to be good mentors.
  • Special seminars and workshops will be part of the program.
  • Opportunities for a job interview for possible employment will also be available.
