Practicum & Pre-Practicum

All licensure candidates complete multiple practicum and pre-practicum embedded within coursework.

Through early exposure to best practices (and mentoring to process these experiences), Stonehill’s licensure candidates become better aware of the intricacies associated with teaching, especially in under-resourced high-needs schools and districts. Required pre-practicum not only span the ages/grades covered by the candidates license, but also occur in a variety of settings.

These placements occur in both general education as well as special education settings. Experiences are designed to support students in seeing the connections between theory and practice, and prepare licensure candidates to work with students from diverse backgrounds as well as in high-need areas. Students work with their program advisor to determine appropriate pre-practicum and practicum experiences and to ensure all requirements are met prior to placement.
