Level-I Clinicals

Dr. Cartwright Reading to Students


Level I Clinical Experience (EDF 270) is a 35-hour experience in a school setting, where the teacher candidate has the opportunity to observe and work with individuals, or small groups of students.

The purpose of the level I clinical is to:

  • Provide a window through which teacher candidates in the College of Education and Professional Development can view students and classrooms from the teacher’s perspective.
  • Assists teacher candidates in gaining teaching skills through participation in tutoring, working with small groups of students, teaching parts of lessons, and other activities as appropriate in the classroom.
  • Provide opportunities for teacher candidates to observe the developmental levels of their students.
  • complete an anonymous case study on a student in the classroom for the college’s accreditation purposes.

Professional Expectations

As a teacher candidate entering the schools, you are expected to conduct yourself as a practicing professional educator. You are subject to the same ethical and professional responsibilities of a full-time teacher.

Please review the Teacher Candidate Code of Professional Conduct, which includes the dress code and attendance policy for all candidates, prior to entering the classroom.
