ECC 30100 - Field work/Internship 1
This supervised experience gives students the means to connect conceptual and theoretical information about children in a preschool setting. Students will have the opportunity to examine the developmental progression of early and emergent skills as they relate to infant, toddler, and preschoolers’ development. Students will also have the opportunity to discuss developmentally appropriate assessments and how parents/caregivers can document developmental milestones of children birth through age 4.
Students will complete 5 hours per week of fieldwork for a minimum of 50 contact hours per semester. Students will develop guided observation skills, acquire practical knowledge of the design and management of instruction and the classroom environment, and work effectively with individual students and small work groups.
Students receiving a grade of B in fieldwork must apply to the chairperson for permission to re- register for the course. Fieldwork may be repeated only once. Students who receive a grade lower than B on their second attempt may not repeat the course again and may not continue in the program.
