Description: This course is a 16-week, full-time field experience with a skilled mathematics mentorteacher, supervised by an “MTL mentor,” the official college supervisor, in an accredited secondary school. Prospective teachers who enroll in this course will, with the close and continual support of the mentor-teacher, take on increasing responsibility for, and learn from, all aspects of the work of a full-time mathematics teacher. Prospective teachers and their mentors will participate in two Secondary Mathematics Lesson Studies (which, together, constitute the teacher work sample), and in regular seminars conducted by the MTL mentor and other members of the Department of Mathematical and Computer Sciences.
