Praxis II Departmental Courses include a more substantial fieldwork component that engages students in activities and projects off-campus that are linked directly to course objectives and are useful to the community partner.
The time commitment for fieldwork varies greatly from course to course but falls within the range of two to seven hours per week or 20-70 hours per semester.
Praxis II courses might include:
- weekly fieldwork in local classrooms or community-based organizations;
- conducting research that has been requested by a community partner;
- project-based activities such as creating a curriculum, designing a website, or curating a museum exhibit.
The Praxis Fieldwork Agreement is an important part of all Praxis II courses. This document outlines the learning and placement objectives of the Praxis component and is signed by the course instructor, the field supervisor, the Praxis coordinator and the student. These fieldwork agreements are specific to each course and the forms will be made available by the Praxis field placement coordinator for the course or by the instructor.
The Praxis component in Praxis II courses constitutes between 25-50 percent of total coursework assigned.
