I was in a secondary program and we had our main placement at our level of choice (high or middle) and then about 1/2 a semester worth of hours at the other level. I was high school and did basically one afternoon a week at a middle school for a the fall semseter of my student teaching.

Going back to school...
Big Smile

For my degree area, one placement but over the course of two semesters.
In the fall I was at the school twice a week and I just observed and helped my CT and observed other grade levels/educational settings...but then now I'm doing full student teaching, responsibility, etc.

It was required that we teach in two schools. It also was required one placement was lower grade k-3 and one placement was upper grade 4-8.

I'm at Kean.

We do 15 weeks in one classroom even if you are a dual cert candidate.

I know Monmouth does 7/8 split gen ed/special ed

1st Grade Teacher
My program was a year long. The first semester was three full days a week. The first half of that semester I was in a kindergarten class. The second half of that semester I was in a 3rd grade class.

The second semester was full time teaching, 5 days a week, with me teaching all content areas. The first part of the semester I was with the same 3rd grade teacher I had finished out the previous semester with. Half way through the semester I switched back to the kindergarten teacher I had started the previous semester with.

The new student teachers coming in to the school for that last semester stayed with the same teacher and the same grade through the whole semester, switching to a different teacher and grade for the second semester.
