EDU 461 Senior Seminar I

1 Credit

To effectively prepare students for their Student Teaching Practicum experience, Senior Seminar I must be taken the semester prior to student teaching. Throughout the course, time is allotted for students to reflect on their thoughts, questions, and concerns about their pending student teaching experience. Other portions of the course are devoted to guiding students as they work to complete their pre-student teaching requirements and become familiar with the placement process. Students prepare the student teaching binder that will serve to document examples of their work during the practicum experience. Materials are ultimately selected from these binders to be organized into a presentation portfolio that provides evidence that students have developed the competencies identified by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the INTASC Standards for Pre-service Teachers. 

Prerequisite(s): ECE 101  / EDU 101  .  Senior status in the major and a passing score on each of the state-mandated basic skills assessment (Reading, Writing, and Math).

NOTE: There is a required field component for this course.  All students are required to have valid clearances to participate in field experience.
