Description:

Required of and restricted to the Central NH Cluster students who entered in Fall 2010.

The purpose of the Practicum is to assist students in integrating theoretical knowledge gained through reading and seminars with their experience as teachers. During this Practicum semester students will be completing their Practicum portfolios. The emphasis in the Practicum is upon self-evaluation, reflection, and articulation of experience. Students may call on faculty consultants for particular assistance with classroom practices. A reflective journal is required of all students, and at least one visit to another classroom; an annotated bibliography and a sustained observation of a student are also required. One hour of the monthly core course meetings will be devoted to practicum-related issues, such as discussion of classroom practice, reflective journal writing, and theoretical applications to teaching.
