Student teaching placements are made in Chicago, Illinois. Most of these placements are made in the Albany Park and Irving Park neighborhood on the north side of the city, but some exceptions are made to accommodate participants’ content areas.
Most participants live in an apartment with fellow participants; these apartments are found through a partner organization called UNITE. Students have their own bedroom and share other living spaces. Alternatively, students can choose to live with a host family within their student teaching school neighborhood. This allows students greater cultural immersion as well as lower costs of living.
