About the School of Education


Urban Block
The Urban Block, a partnership between the School of Education and the Minneapolis Public Schools, is an inner city program designed for elementary education teacher candidates.  During their senior year, teacher candidates take their methods courses in a classroom at Andersen Open School and participate in student teaching experiences in surrounding schools in Minneapolis, allowing teacher candidates to integrate theory and practice and apply what they learn in authentic classroom settings.  Teacher candidates are immersed in diverse school communities and cultures, including Latino, Hmong, African-American, Native American, and Somali populations.
