Experience Learning as Both Student and Teacher
Teacher See, Teacher Do
Observe real-world teachers and students. Participate in actual classroom studies and discussions. Teach lessons in local public schools. Receive critical feedback from expert mentors in your field of study. It’s all part of your field placement experience through NGU.
Before you teach, you plan. Master the art of translating theory into practice as you create your own lesson plans. It’s the first step in transitioning from student to teacher.
Practice What You Teach
Study. Observe. Engage. Then teach! Before you graduate, complete one full teaching semester in a South Carolina public school setting. Expand your experience outside the classroom as you complete demographic studies about your school, students, and surrounding community.
It’s a combination of hands-on experience and a big-picture view of education. All designed to prepare you for a successful teaching career.
