Roosevelt University has a unique partnership with the Early Childhood Education Center (Bright Horizons) at the Schaumburg Campus to provide authentic learning experiences for pre-service teachers where children, families, and employees represent many different cultures and backgrounds. Bright Horizons serves children from 6 weeks of age through kindergarten and also has programs for school-aged children.
Student teaching is the capstone of the teacher education curriculum. Each student teacher is engaged in full-time teaching responsibilities for a fifteen-week period under the guidance of a certified, experienced mentor teacher and a full-time university supervisor. Field experience is the best way to apply classroom knowledge in real-world scenarios.
Graduate students in the Language and Literacy program learn real-world strategies in our Summer Reading Clinic. Children from PK-9 grade attend a five-week session where graduate students learn to create a Balanced Literacy classroom and implement best practices in literacy instruction. Weekly parent workshops and individual case studies are completed by the graduate students.
