- Engage in valuable hands-on learning with practicum and student teaching opportunities.
What to Expect
As a student in one of Trevecca’s post baccalaureate programs, you’ll be fully prepared to succeed in the classroom. Our post baccalaureate licensure equips you in early childhood education (pre-K–3) and in special education (K-8). Our Master of Arts in teaching (MAT) licensure equips you in elementary education (K-5) and secondary education (6-12). Our programs are accredited by The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
As part of the program, you’ll learn how to write lesson plans based on best practices to meet current standards; how to collect and analyze student learning data; how to teach students to read; how to make accommodations for exceptional learners; how to manage a diverse classroom; and more. You’ll take part in a least 15 weeks of supervised student teaching in a local school, where you’ll teach lesson plans you’ve created, apply classroom management strategies and learn how current technologies and curriculum are being used in the field. During your practicums and student teaching, you’ll receive valuable feedback from your supervising professor and mentoring teacher aimed at helping you become a more effective teacher
