ECE112M : Preschool Practicum: Learning Environments

This course is an introductory practicum that includes observation, participation, and teaching in a preschool  setting (students choose to take ECE111M OR ECE 112M as their first practicum). The manner in which a “prepared environment” leads to learning through play and stimulating the development of children will be the focus of the course.  Students will observe the effects of space, equipment, materials, and relationships upon play, learning, and discovery.  Students will plan and implement developmentally appropriate lesson plans based on the NH Early Learning Standards.  Students will attend a weekly three hour practicum placement at an assigned site as well as a weekly seminar class. Students must pass this course with a C or better to move on to the next practicum course, ECE 202M. Prerequisites: none
