Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
Apprentice Teaching is part of the UTeach model curriculum upon which our new GWTeach program is based. We would be the first to introduce a practice teaching course at GW for undergraduate students to finish their preparation for teaching certification.
This course is designed in accordance with the UTeach Instructional Program Elements. See UTeach Instructional Program (http://uteach-institute.org/publications) for descriptions of these elements.
We recommend this course qualify for service learning credit.
