Urban Education: Student Teaching in Chicago

United States -

Tags: Education Ethnic Studies Psychology

Advisor: Professor Stewart C. Purkey

In the Urban Education program students engage in an urban student teaching experience with support and guidance to foster their learning and growth as teachers. First established in the early 1960s, the ACM Urban Education Program has had a long tradition of interactions with Chicago schools and the city’s education community.  Students develop their professional skills as they work alongside mentor teachers in Chicago schools. In the weekly seminar, they connect educational theory to their experiences teaching in the classroom. 

Interested students should talk with the education department about requirements for this program.
