ECHD689-01T Early Childhood Pre-Practicum PreK-2 (with Lisa M Gonsalves)

This one-credit field experience is organized around the Preservice Performance Assessment (PPA) tool, which guides both candidates' observations of experienced teachers at work, and candidates' own lesson delivery later in the semester. University supervisors hold two organizational meetings during the semester (beginning and end) to discuss general issues stemming from field placements and to ensure candidates have a solid grasp of the PPA tool with which their lesson delivery is assessed. Students spend one day a week in a PreK-2nd grade public school classroom where they start observing and incrementally taking responsibilities. From helping one single student to small group monitoring, the experience leads to the teaching of a lesson to the whole class that is assessed by the university supervisor. Such assessment is discussed with each individual student and a plan to identify areas and strategies for improvement is completed.

Remote: Courses that are typically taught face-to-face will be delivered remotely this summer. As opposed to an online course, which requires no live sessions and allows a student to study anytime, a remote course is either: (1) a course with live class sessions delivered via web conferencing, or (2) a course with pre-recorded lectures that a student can watch anytime, typically paired with live discussions sessions. For more detail on the remote format of a specific course, contact the instructor.
