This subject focuses on the Teacher Candidates’ awareness of the characteristics of knowledge, practice and professional engagement for professional accountability in teaching. The placement is focused on assessment for tracking student learning more closely to inform teaching. Teacher Candidates take responsibility for independent teaching and demonstrate their capacity to implement sustained sequences of lessons with consideration for the learning needs of individual students. Teaching Fellows at the school and Clinical Specialists from the University advise and monitor Teacher Candidates in collaboration with Supervising Teachers during the period of sustained and independent teaching. The Professional Practice Seminars will focus on student learning needs, assessment, the context of the school and relationships with parents and the broader community.
