A sequential continuation of ECE 231, Early Childhood Education Externship I, this course will provide the student opportunity to gain firsthand experience and learn the process of integrating knowledge skills and techniques with teaching practice. Students are placed in a field experience at a child care center, school or site that provides care and education to children. They are expected to perform the required professional tasks of assisting the regular classroom teacher in implementing the center?s child development and activity program, and to gradually assume the responsibilities of a ?group teacher.? Under the direction and supervision of the regular classroom teacher, the student will plan and implement activities that are appropriate to both the age and developmental level of the children. Students will work or volunteer 120 hours at the externship site in fulfillment of course requirements.
