Course Descriptions

academic major. To be eligible for institutional
endorsement for certification, students are re-
quired to earn "C" or better in coursework as fol-

1. Required education and psychology courses as
applicable to their program (EE201, EE301,
EE302, EE303, EE304, SE350, SE351, EE401,
EE402, EE403, EE404, or EE405, B360, B369,
MU374, and A374).

2. Elementary: ElOl, E102, E204, S152 or S153, a
science course, and area concentration courses
as designated on major's checksheet.

3. Secondary: ElOl, E102, E204 and at least 70% of
coursework in specialization area as desig-
nated on major's checksheet.

D. Experioiccs loith Students. All Education majors
will be provided background experiences in
working with students in tutorial and instruc-
tional activities. Students will be assigned to local
schools for observational and participatory expe-
riences prior to their student teaching experience.

E. The Professional Semester. Education majors file a
written application for admission as seniors to the
Professional Semester. Applicants are reviewed
by faculty committees and notified of actions
taken prior to registration for senior offerings. A
student who has not removed deficiencies in his
professional courses, concentration or specializa-
tion courses, or who is on academic probation,
will not be granted permission to enroll in the
Professional Semester. Students accepted for the
Professional Semester will pay an additional stu-
dent teaching fee of $65.00. A portion of this addi-
tional charge is the fee for an Instructional I
Teaching Certificate.

A student enrolled in the Professional Semes-
ter carries no additional coursework. During the
Professional Semester, the student first takes
three courses intensively for six credit hours; dur-
ing the last part of the semester, he engages in a
full-time student teaching assignment in a coop-
erating school.

F. Student Teaching. The College endeavors to make
suitable student teaching arrangements for all
students admitted to the Professional Semester; it
cannot guarantee assignments. Wide variance
among schools in such matters as professional
standards, faculty decorum and dress codes, and
policies in respect to the number and type of stu-
dent teachers to be accepted necessitates that the
College operate within such external impositions.
Accordingly, student teachers adhere to the
school calendar, policies and practices prevalent
in the school to which assigned. York College pro-
vides liability insurance for its student teachers.

G. Teacher Certification and Placement Services. Upon
successful completion of an approved teacher
education program, the award of a Baccalaureate
degree, and institutional endorsement to the ap-
propriate state agency, a graduate is awarded a
teaching certificate.

Bona fide teacher education students register with
the College Placement Office to establish referral cre-
dentials and contact prospective employers.
