EEC 4941 - Internship I: Early Childhood Education
(3 Credit Hours)
Full day, full term internship, with field observations in three child care centers or pre-kindergarten classes. Teacher candidates demonstrate the ability to apply knowledge, skills and dispositions in assessment of authentic pre-K sites. Students will be required to use evaluation instruments that assess quality of child care settings. The required field component must be arranged by the student and documented through virtual modes, such as video portfolio, or other Internet based presentations. Students in this course will demonstrate mastery of program performance standards by analyzing data from the evaluation of three early childhood classrooms, centers or sites and justifying a request to use the center or school for their final practicum experience. Discussion boards, evaluations, reflections and self-assessment tools will be used.
