In addition to the course work required for the specialization, all prospective student teachers must take the English Field Assessment and participate in at least TWO laboratory activities in language arts:  Academic Support Center Writing Tutor, Theater, Forensics, Radio, Sans Merci, The Picket, Appalachian Heritage WIR Program, Rude Mechanicals, ENGL 476 Practicum in English I , Service Learning, Global Learning or Travel, or other activity approved in advance by the specialization coordinator. It is highly recommended that at least one of lab experiences be a travel practicum, as travel offers a global perspective important for the English LA teacher. Students must have at least one practical experience tutoring in the Academic Support Center. Likewise, it is strongly recommended that students take at least one Gateway course, as the fieldtrip experience is important to the interdisciplinary nature of the LA teaching field.
