ECE202 - Senior Practicum: Student Teaching

Credits: 4

This Practicum allows students to assume teacher responsibilities in a variety of Early Childhood settings under guided supervision. Students will bridge the gap between theory and practice by implementing theoretical knowledge and developmentally appropriate methodology in their work with young children. Students will assume increasing responsibility throughout the semester by planning activities across the curriculum. Students will complete ECE202 at college approved Early Childhood facilities. Students will need to have practicum experience with two different age groups in their senior year (i.e. infant/toddler; preschool; school-age).
