Elementary, Secondary, or K-12 student teaching provides pre-service educators with experiences to connect theory and practice in the context of a K-12 classroom(s). Pre-service teachers' responsibilities include: long-term planning, implementation of an integrated curriculum, the facilitation of small- and large-group learning, and the development of assessment systems that support the MN graduation standards for K-12 students.
The Office of Clinical Experience has a new website! Visit: http://www.hamline.edu/education/office-of-clinical-experience/.
(Unique Partnership between Hamline and EducatorsAbroad)
Students who are interested in student teaching overseas should submit an e-mail letter of intent to Associate Chair Dr. Bill Lindquist (see below). The letter, which must include the applicant’s contact information and follow the formatting guidelines of a professional cover letter, should address the following:
Fall Student Teaching: submit the letter by January 1 to meet EducatorsAbroad's March 1 deadline.
Spring or Summer Student Teaching: submit the letter by August 1 to meet EducatorAbroad's October 1 deadline.
*Note: Hamline University is not able to offer summer student teaching placements. No exceptions are allowed.
A staff member will contact the applicant to set up an interview for the purpose of assessing the following:
1. Clarity of the student’s goals related to the study abroad experience. 2. The student's adaptability, flexibility, and professionalism, in addition to her/his readiness to teach overseas. 3. Approximately one (1) week after the interview takes place, the student will be sent a decision letter (request accepted or rejected). If a student’s request is approved, the letter will outline additional instructions and steps to complete the application.
