This teaching practicum was completed at Wachusett Regional High School in Holden, MA in the Spring of 2008 as part of the initial teaching license program offered at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Included in this project were nearly 160 hours of teaching freshman physics subject matter in the classroom and 98 hours of observation time in a variety of science classrooms. As a student teacher assuming the complete role of being a high school teacher, all materials used were compiled and lesson plans developed from available resources. Through this experience the role of the teacher became understood and the value of present teachers known.
