Over the course of two semesters, students will complete 40 hours of field experience in an approved urban school, actively participate in a book study, and attend presentations from guest speakers and panelists about their experiences in urban education. This club experience is designed to provide teacher candidates with greater perspective on urban education and the social issues that often affect students in low-income, urban communities.
