ED 522 - TEP Practicum C: Focus on Curriculum

1 credit
In this class, multiple subject and special education candidates focus collaboratively on the curriculum as a unit of observation, reflection, and practice. Students select an approved fieldwork site from the list provided by the department, and obtain permission from the site supervisor prior to starting their fieldwork. Students complete at least 25 hours of fieldwork at the site, observing and participating in teaching and learning activities. Students keep a journal for reference during in-class interactions. Students also use this fieldwork setting as a place to practice what they are learning in other courses. Topics in this class include state-adopted and teacher-created curricula; implementation of standards; lesson and unit planning; adapting curriculum for English learners or children with special needs; hands-on learning; and types of formal and informal assessments. This course is the third of a 3-part fieldwork series, which must be completed in sequence. The whole series meets the fieldwork requirement for the Human Development B.A. or M.A..
