Student Teaching in England - Summer Program

England: International Teaching Practicum

Course: EDU 548: International Student Teaching Practicum in England

Course Description: Fredonia offers an international teaching practicum in cooperation with the University of Plymouth. This long-standing program offers an exciting opportunity to 10 students to live in Plymouth, England for three weeks. Students participate in a three-week teaching exchange in an English elementary school to gain a greater awareness of the British education system. The host classroom teacher determines actual teaching responsibilities; participants are encouraged to become fully immersed in daily instructional activities. School placements are made based upon age preferences and availability of supervising teachers. Students are expected to be prepared to teach about American culture as well as to attend seminars, participate in planned cultural and social events, and to complete reading assignments about education in the United Kingdom. The experience begins with a visit to London. An opportunity for a week of free travel is optional. Upon return to the United States, students will submit a scholarly project reflecting their professional growth from the experience.
