In this course, students continue to build upon the practicum component initiated in their first field placement. At the end of this teaching practice, students can consistently demonstrate that they are progressing towards the ability to observe; plan for, facilitate and evaluate children’s learning; guide children’s behaviour using appropriate strategies; interact with children, staff and families; and participate in most aspects of the program as an emerging level early childhood educator.
In the seminar/in-class component of this course, students discuss, analyze, and document their teaching practice experience. Topics of discussion include observations; planning, implementing, evaluating, and documenting the children’s learning; guidance, observation and assessment of behaviour; health, safety and nutrition; interacting with staff and families; and, professionalism in the field. Students develop an ongoing professional development plan as they enter into the field. Students continue the process of self-reflection, as it relates to their performance in teaching practice.
