CAREERS IN EDUCATION (year-AM/PM)
Prerequisite: Grades 11-12, Application acceptance.
The Careers in Education program is a one-year course offering an innovative, hands-on approach for high school juniors and seniors interested in exploring education as a possible career choice. This class provides the opportunity for the student to receive classroom experience working with preschool, elementary, and middle school students in a number of capacities including, but not limited to: tutoring, assisting with special programs and projects, supervising small groups, and eventually teaching lessons. Students will help with various classroom preparation duties and will document their observations and achievements to strengthen their understanding of the teaching process. Student placement for Careers in Education field experience is made with a teacher in the student’s home district and the SWWC instructor. Students will receive a grade based on supervising teacher evaluations, on-site observation, classroom assignments and a final project. Students will have the opportunity to join Business Professionals of America or FCCLA competing at the regional, state and national level in competitions related to education. Articulation is granted at Central Michigan University and various colleges throughout the State of Michigan. See instructor.
