ECE265L : Practicum II in Early Childhood Education

The student works in a licensed and approved setting under the supervision of a qualified professional to acquire the advanced skills and develop autonomy in the planning and implementation of activities for young children. Periodic conferences between the student, supervisor and the practicum instructor are held to evaluate the student'92s progress. At the close of the semester, the student submits detailed documentation relating theory, practice, and the student's learning experiences at the practicum site. In addition, a detailed portfolio which entails the NAEYC Standards is produced. Work at the practicum site along with peer review, self-reflection and disclosure combine to create a structure that promotes and supports personal and professional growth.
