To advance to student teaching, a student must have a minimum of a cumulative GPA of 2.75 (undergraduate) or 3.00 (graduate). All academic coursework and content area tests must be successfully completed. Three online faculty evaluations for student teaching are required.
The student teaching experience consists of teaching a full-day, every day for 11 weeks, one academic quarter (11 weeks). Students may not act as a substitute teacher or accept payment from their student teaching placement site. A capstone (undergraduates) or seminar (graduates) course accompanies the student teaching experience and meets regularly throughout the quarter. Students are assigned a cooperating teacher (on-site) and a university supervisor (DePaul faculty) to monitor their progress.
Mandatory MeetingAll student teaching candidates, undergraduate and graduate, must attend a mandatory informational meeting before completing the initial application to student teach. This meeting will be offered at the Lincoln Park Campus.
