ECE-220 - Early Childhood Practicum 1

4 credits

Practicum One is an internship consisting of a minimum of 150 hours of work in the field. This student teaching experience will be conducted at an approved site, with the option of an infant/toddler or a preschool/kindergarten placement. The intent of this course is to give students the opportunity apply theory to practice and become skilled practitioners. Working under the direction of an experienced teacher, the students will gradually assume increased responsibility for classroom management, as well as the organization and design of curriculum. An additional requirement of this course will be a weekly 90 minute seminar. The seminar will give students the opportunity to reflect on their experiences in the classroom and discussion will focus on concerns and successes.

Prerequisite(s): ECE-110, ECE-150, and  permission of the instructor
