ECEDĀ 4802. Senior Seminar I in Early Childhood Education. 1 Credit Hour.

This seminar is designed to help you make connections between the teaching experiences you will have this semester as student teachers and what you have learned in your university classes. The course will help you bridge theory and practice and provide you with a framework of support and guidance as you prepare to take charge of your own classroom. It will also provide you with tools to reflect on your experience and learn from it, which will facilitate your successful entry into the teaching profession. To accomplish this, we will engage in discussions and activities that center on your core beliefs about teaching, the context for your teaching (where you teach), your pedagogical practices (how you teach), the content you teach (what you teach), and the needs of your students (whom you teach). We will also examine how theory informs classroom practice and come to understand how instructional management strategies are inherently linked to good pedagogy. We will also examine and discuss how both formal and informal student assessments work as tools for reflection and improvement.
