ECE 411 Early Childhood Practicum II – Fall 2022

It requires supervised participation in an assigned early childhood education setting and attendance at a weekly seminar. Students will explore principles, methods, and materials for teaching emergent literacy within a developmentally appropriate, interdisciplinary and culturally responsive curriculum. Current research regarding speaking, listening, reading and writing experiences of young children will be critically examined. Practical classroom experiences will provide opportunities for students to make connections between theory and practice, develop professional behavior working with young children and their families, and build a comprehensive understanding of balanced literacy in early childhood classrooms. Students will design, implement and evaluate activity-based literacy learning experiences for young children with diverse learning styles and needs, with strong emphasis on child centered, play-oriented approaches to teaching, learning and assessment, and knowledge of curriculum content areas.

My “Not a Box” is a memory from Mexico. I loved going to Mexico since I was a little girl it was my favorite place. Being in Mexico made me feel peace, happy, no stress, no worries it was the best stress reliever. Most importantly I loved spending time with my grandma and have my kids spend time with her also. I am very proud of my culture and want my kids to learn about our culture and love it as much as I do. It is my favorite memory because it’s been two years since I’ve been to Mexico and since my grandmother passed away. I refuse to accept she is gone so I haven’t been to Mexico since and I just hold on to my beautiful memory.
