Do I have to do all of my practicum hours at once?

Just as you can work on your practicum hours at various locations, you can also conduct
your observation, tutoring, or student teaching at various times. You can begin your
hours as soon as the course starts, and you have up to 60 days after the course has
ended to complete your practicum. Some teacher trainees prefer to wait until they have
been enrolled in the course for some time before they feel comfortable enough to work
with English language learners, while some will begin as soon as the course starts and
ease into English classes by doing some observation hours in the beginning. Others wait
until the course has ended and will work on their practicum during the 60-day period
after certification due to schedule constraints.
