Experiential Learning in Teacher Education
All education methods classes include field experience. Field experience, including student teaching, takes place in settings that range from large urban to small rural public school systems, from Christian and other private schools to multicultural (multiple language) institutions and one-on-one or small-group tutoring situations.
Because hands-on experience is so important for learning how to put concepts and strategies into practice, all Bethel education licensure candidates complete a semester of student teaching. Our faculty members, who will get to know you well, will be able to place you with a teacher whose styles and priorities match your own. Through professional contacts and Bethel’s alumni network, our faculty can help arrange student teaching experiences for you in other states and even other countries.
