ECE 101 Teaching as a Profession: PK-4
This course introduces the pre-Education major to the teaching profession at the Early Elementary (PK-4) and Special Education (PK-8) level. The student is informed about teaching as a profession, the attitudes and behaviors of the professional educator, the knowledge and skills that are needed to promote quality learning of young children, and the requirements to become certified as a teacher in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Students must register and take the basic skills test required for certification by the Pennsylvania Department of Education as a requisite for successful completion of ECE 101. An overview of the Neumann University teacher education program is also provided.
NOTE: ECE 101 Teaching as Profession is a prerequisite for all other courses in the Early Elementary (PK-4) and Special Education (PK-8) major. Proof of a current FBI Fingerprint Clearance, Pennsylvania Child Abuse Clearance, and Pennsylvania Criminal Background Clearance is required and must be submitted to the Director of Field Experience in order to take ECE 101 and all future Education courses. Students may not take classes or participate in field experience or student teaching without valid clearances, as determined by the Director of Field Experience.
