Field Placements, Student Teaching  and Internships at Wichita State University

Through a professional development school (PDS) model, every teacher education student, from freshman to senior year, is provided with opportunities to be actively engaged in area PreK-12 classrooms. Students learn firsthand about classroom management, use of technology in the classroom and evaluation of student learning from exemplary teachers who are selected to mentor our students. During the teaching internship semester, our teacher education students spend 15 weeks fulltime in the classroom as they gradually assume greater teaching responsibilities. Particular effort is made to provide our students with opportunities to work with a diversity of PreK-12 students and settings over the course of their education, including students from poverty and various ethnicities, language backgrounds and achievement levels.
