EDP 630 Practicum in Special Education
2 weekly seminar hours: 240 field hours; 3 credits
This course has two components: Fieldwork mentored by a faculty member and a weekly seminar. Students complete 40 days (a total of 240 instructional hours) or the equivalent in a mentored teaching experience with 20 days in lower grades and 20 days in upper grades as outlined by their specific education program. Students currently employed as teachers work with a faculty member, a cooperating teacher, and the school principal or designee to enhance learning for individual and groups of children of varying abilities. Students meet once a week for two hours in a seminar to reflect upon the educational philosophies they have studied and the methodologies they are currently implementing in their own classrooms as they develop their own approaches to teaching and learning. The teacher’s role in developing environments that are safe and nurturing as well as intellectually stimulating and challenging for all students is examined. NOTE: This course is for Sequence 1 students.
