Praxis I Departmental Courses provide opportunities for students to explore and develop community connections in relation to the course topic by incorporating a variety of activities into the syllabus, such as
- field trips to local organizations,
- guest speakers from those organizations,
- and assignments that ask students to research local issues.
In some cases, students in Praxis I courses are engaged an introductory fieldwork activities; the time commitment for this fieldwork does not exceed two hours per week or 20 hours per semester.
The Praxis component in all Praxis I courses constitutes less than 25 percent of the total coursework assigned.
