EDP 631 Teaching Practicum I in Special Education
2 seminar hours per week, 120 field hours; 2 credits
Sequence 2 students who request the Internship Certificate select this option as their college supervised practicum in special education. EDP 631 and EDP 632 are taken over a year. Upon obtaining a teaching position with NYCDOE, CSI will apply to NYSED for an Internship Certificate for our student. Student's taking EDP 631 and EDP 632 must secure their own school placement. This course has two components: Fieldwork mentored by a faculty member and a weekly seminar. In EDP 631, teacher candidates complete 20 (twenty) days (or 120 instructional hours) in a mentored teaching experience in a special education setting as outlined by their specific education program. The teacher candidates role in developing appropriate learning environments is a focal point of this course. 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 nurting as well as intellectually stimulating and challenging for all students is examined.
