Experience-based Learning

Student teaching experience

Teaching Elementary StudentsSchool systems in the area cooperate with Goshen College to provide strong and varied student teaching experiences. Preservice teachers experience a broad spectrum of classroom situations. During the student teaching experience, students will work 12 or more weeks full time in a local school system and will be supervised by classroom teachers and college professors.

Fieldwork experiences

An important part of Goshen’s teacher education program is learning first-hand in the schools. Students will work in a variety of settings with diverse populations. If Study-Service Term (SST) is part of the international education experience, students will also have the opportunity to work with children or youth in another culture.
