EDU 461 Senior Seminar I

1 Credit

To effectively prepare students for their Student Teaching Practicum or Educational Studies Internship 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 experience. Other portions of the course are devoted to guiding students as they work to complete their pre-student teaching and pre-internship requirements and become familiar with the placement process. Students gain information on professionalism, ethics in the workplace, and the interview process. Students prepare portfolios that will serve to collect and document examples of their work, learning, and growth during their practicum/internship experience to provide evidence that the student developed the competencies of the degree.

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

NOTE: All students are required to have current and valid clearances to participate in ECE 461: Senior Seminar I. Dual certification education students may not take ECE 461 unless they have been officially accepted to the Early Elementary (PK-4) and Special Education (PK-8) major.
