Field Experience

 

General Information

Field Experiences in the Teacher Education Program at Brewton-Parker College are designed to facilitate Candidates’ professional development and growth through opportunities for observing P-12 clinical faculty modeling best teaching practices in climates that value diversity, foster tolerance and understanding, and respect for cultural heritage in both learning and teaching.  Authentic classroom settings used in field experiences provide Candidates opportunities for the application of and reflection on the development of their knowledge, skills, and dispositions for helping all students learn.  Field Experiences are both sequential and incremental as well as intensive and extensive in covering the appropriate content and levels of candidates programs and allowing candidates opportunities to work with students with exceptionalities and students from diverse ethnic, racial, gender and socioeconomic groups. 

The goal of Field Experiences is to assist the Candidate as they travel down Reflective Pathways from Theory to Practice to becoming a Reflective Educator with a Christian Worldview.
