Physical Education Student Experience

Baker physical education students have endless opportunities to learn about the education profession with both theoretical approaches and practical experiences built into the curriculum. Small class sizes allow you maximum interaction with classmates and professors. Experiences in and out of the classroom make Baker's education programs an enriching experience.

Classroom Experience

Baker's education programs emphasize the importance of hands-on experience in the classroom. From your first education course as a freshman through your student-teaching experience to end your college career, you will be in the classroom interacting with area students, being mentored by real teachers and engaging in a real classroom.

Student Teaching

As a capstone of your education studies, you will spend a semester in a classroom, working closely with a teacher in executing lesson plans and activities and preparing for an entire semester in the educational area you have chosen. You will work with an advisor from the Department of Education in setting up your student-teaching semester in the setting you prefer.
