SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY AND A&M COLLEGE NAMED AS ONE OF THE NATION’S TOP TEACHER PREP PROGRAMS FOR CLINICAL PRACTICE EXPERIENCES

 

Baton Rouge, Louisiana - Southern University and A&M College’s undergraduate elementary teacher preparation program has been named among the top in the country by the National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ), a nonpartisan, not-for-profit research and policy organization, for a strong commitment to quality clinical practice experiences aimed at preparing aspiring teachers for the realities of the classroom.

 

This month NCTQ released its 2020 Teacher Prep Review: Clinical Practice and Classroom Management,

which finds little national progress in the adoption of quality control metrics of clinical

experiences (including student teaching and residencies), particularly in the process for selecting mentor teachers who are managed not only by teacher prep programs but also by their partner school districts.

 

Southern University and A&M College’s program stands out as among only 33 traditional elementary programs that earn an A (of more than 1,100 evaluated) due to strong clinical experience requirements and serves as a model of excellence for others. These top-performing programs are recognized for:

  • Requiring candidates to spend ten or more weeks in an experienced teacher’s classroom, including at least four days per week or the equivalent in the classroom each week;
  • Screening mentor teachers for mentorship skill and/or instructional effectiveness as measured by student learning, among other skills; and
  • Requiring program supervisors to give student teachers written feedback based on

observations at least four times during the clinical practice experience.
