Our office determines both the section of Secondary Teaching Methods that you will be enrolled in and your placement for the final clinical and student teaching. You are expected to make sure that you have both time periods free for enrollment in Methods (this includes rearranging employment, conflicts with other courses, etc.).
You do not have any input into your placement due to the growing number of students in our program, the shrinking number of available schools and cooperating teachers, new state requirements for diversity of placements and the need to ensure that all program graduate meet stringent state standards.
Any questions regarding the application process or our program policies should be directed to Dr. Bowers before the submission deadline (firstname.lastname@example.org or 753-6655; Office Hours are posted on the Department Website)
Late applications will be accepted but only after all other placements are made and only if there is space remaining.
Students who intend to student teach (History 400) are required to file an ILAS 401/HIST 496/HIST 400 Application. This will lead to enrollment in Teaching Methods at the Secondary Level Grades 6-12 (HIST 496 and all cross-listed sections of that course).
Applications must be submitted two semesters in advance of the student's scheduled student teaching semester. Typically students enrolled in ILAS 301 complete the student teaching application.
Students applying to ILAS 401/History 400 must download and save and electronic copy of the application materials. They are then required to submit a single paper copy of all requested materials to Dr. Bowers.
Dr. Bowers will suggest changes/corrections and notify students when and where they can pick up their applications. Students will then have one week to make the requested revisions and to submit the final six copies to Dr. Bowers.
