VU Gets You into the Classroom
Understanding content is only one part of being a good chemistry teacher. As a VU education major, you will spend a minimum of 60 hours in the classroom through a program called Initial Experiences in Education. You will also gain hands-on experiences through your methods courses where you will spend 30 hours in a middle school science classroom (EDUC 431) and 30 hours in a high school science classroom (EDUC 432). In each of these experiences you will be mentored by an experienced teacher in the field and will plan and teach a minimum of one lesson in each experience.
