Summer Supervised Fieldwork/ Advisement for Early Childhood Special Education Head Teachers and Assistant Teachers

EDUC 992
This course is designed for candidates in the early childhood special education certification programs who are working teachers or assistant teachers. Its purpose is to give candidates a supervised teaching experience within the range of ages, settings, and student characteristics required by New York State that cannot be met through their full-time teaching positions. During July, candidates are placed in an appropriate site for four weeks, five days per week. Advisors visit them in their sites and meet with candidates individually. There are weekly conference groups with candidates and advisors that will include the exchange and analysis of ongoing professional experiences and provide a forum for integrating theory and practice.
