Community Of Learners

practicum office (student teaching program)

They Lynch School of Education's student teaching program reflects the School's Mission , improve the human condition through education" as well as to the Boston College motto, " Ever to Excel ." The student teachers focus on five teacher education themes throughout the practicum. They include: Promoting Social Justice, Constructing Knowledge, Inquiring into Practice, Meeting the Needs of Diverse Learners, and Collaborating with Others.

We encourage our student teachers to fully participate in the theme collaborating with others as they work in organized Communities of Learners that include both pre and full practicum student teachers. This "team" approach is designed to encourage collaboration and sharing ideas.

The practicum requirements are organized around four general topics: Plan, Connect, Act, and Reflect. Plan ning lessons, Connect ing and Collaborating with others, Act ing (in the role of teacher) and Reflect ing on Practice. These four topics reflect our goal: create a Community of Learners which includes practicing teachers, teachers in training, and students in the classroom.

Although our Community of Learners extends to all of the neighborhoods surrounding Boston College , we have an extremely active partnership with urban schools in the area. Below you will find ifnormation regarding the urban schools which are part of our Community of Learners.
