What is field observation?

field observation

During Block I, students will complete 6 days of field observation. Thus, if class is scheduled on M/W during field students will come to class on Monday and go out to a school to observe an actual teacher on Wednesday from 7:30 – 1:00 PM instead of coming to class. The Office of Field Experience will arrange field experience placements for all students and each class section will be assigned to a particular school. An orientation to the school will take place the first day of field observation. Please note that all students must obtain a TB test before they can begin field observations. Prior to the beginning field observation, all students must provide the professor coordinating the field observation with the results of a TB test.
