​​​Secondary Program

The Professional Education Sequence aims to provide teacher candidates with a foundation of understanding of teaching and learning approaches and strategies in a classroom setting.  As a secondary education student you will have your pre-student teaching component within your major content area. The secondary education pre-student teaching course will be taken after you have been admitted to the Teacher Education Program.  It is highly recommended that the pre-student teaching course be taken in conjunction with your content methods course. The goal is to ensure continuity in candidates’ presence in the school, allowing them to experience the development of teaching and learning over time, while providing support to the school and community.

Information regarding the application will be sent to their CMICH email account once candidates have enrolled in their pre-student teaching course.

The online Placement Application can be found at on your Student Information Sheet.  Your cooperating teacher will receive a packet of information that includes a copy of your application with responses to the essay questions and an explanation of their role in your Pre-Student Teaching Experience.  This is an opportunity for you to make a good first impression.

All placement information will be available on your Student Information Sheet. Instructions will be sent via the CMICH email account and Blackboard.

Pre-student teaching packets with required forms will be disbursed to you during the first week of your pre-student teaching class. Any questions or concerns you may have about your pre-student teaching experience can be addressed in your university class.
