Student Teaching (EDU 250)

Student Teaching provides significant field experience for students in the Education in the Early Years Program: Birth through Fourth Grade program. It acts as a capstone course for this program. Students spend 15 hours per week observing, planning and implementing their lesson plans in an early childhood classroom under the daily supervision of an experienced teacher. Students also construct and complete a full professional portfolio. A faculty member from the College oversees the entire placement, including arranging for the placement, orienting the on-site teacher and director, observing the student teacher on a regular basis, and providing feedback to the student teacher based on the observations. A student will not be placed in a center/school at which he/she is currently employed, and therefore a student can not be paid for any services conducted during the student teaching course time (M-F, 9:00-12:00). Transportation is the responsibility of the student. A student can only meet the student teaching requirements if he/she is placed in a center/school This course is taken at the end of the program in conjunction with EDU 233, Early Childhood Curriculum. Students need permission of a faculty member or advisor before registering for student teaching. A student must get permission to register for EDU 250 from a student teacher supervisor or Education advisor. This course is subject to a course fee.
