Northern Arizona University’s COE answers your questions about PRAXIS
PRAXIS is the only local school-based program that is specifically designed for special/elementary education dual majors. This three-semester long program is designed to prepare candidates to effectively instruct all learners by focusing on the many similarities as well as the cognitive, behavioral and social differences. Special Education and Elementary Education courses along with practicum placements are taught over three semesters.
Practicum placements will be throughout Flagstaff in public, charter and private schools ranging from preschool to high school. Candidates will spend over 200 hours per semester in the classroom and be closely supported and supervised by NAU faculty and staff.
