Clinical Practice

Student Teaching General Information

The purpose of the Clinical Practice/Student Teaching Experience at Brewton-Parker College is to provide a planned, carefully supervised and diverse learning activity for candidates which allows them to demonstrate their knowledge, skills and dispositions in a real world setting. This program also gives students the opportunity to observe, imitate and emulate good instruction.  It provides candidates the setting in which to utilize their knowledge, actualize their teaching plans, prove their understanding of children and affirm their purposes. This program involves cooperative planning and execution on the part of both public school and college personnel.  School partner sites chosen for clinical practice have entered into a contract agreement with Brewton-Parker College to serve as clinical sites for lab experiences.

The ultimate goal of Clinical Practice at Brewton-Parker is to prepare teacher candidates who are Reflective Educators with a Christian Worldview.  A teacher candidate who:


  1. understands and demonstrates knowledge of learner characteristics,
