Developing Practicum

The developing practicum takes place when students have completed their core courses and have taken some classes about teaching methods. Most students teach away from the Luther area for this practicum, seeking out opportunities anywhere in the U.S. to teach in settings with which they are less familiar. This is also a three-to-four-week experience, but this time students do much more planning and teaching than during the introductory practicum. Professors and students use audio and video communication throughout the practicum for questions, feedback, and ongoing instruction.
