Practicum & Observations
Here (general_practicum_placement_form.pdf) you will find the observation/practicum placement form that is completed by each student in a USM methods' class. The receipt of this form is crucial for successful communication with district personnel.
Please make a copy for each student in your class, distribute them during the first week of class, and return all forms to our office by the 3rd week of classes (Educational Field Experiences Box 5028). Placements should be made by within 2 weeks of our office receiving the form, although some districts take longer than others to respond to our requests.
If you or your students desire a Hattiesburg School District placement, then a Quality Learning Time (QLT) form (qlt_form.pdf) must be submitted with an attached syllabus. The Hattiesburg School District requires all QLT’s on Monday by noon prior to the first Wednesday of the month.
