GED 688D - Practicum: Reading Teacher

The Reading Specialist Practicum allows for the student to demonstrate the Standards for the Reading/English Language Arts Specialist Endorsement under the supervision of a college supervisor.  Briefly, the Practicum requires that the student develop goals for him/herself pertinent to the teaching of reading and language arts, develop three in-depth case studies based on children or adolescents with whom he/she works, and address the Knowledge and Performance Standards in a successful way.  The practicum may take place in the graduate student’s own classroom, provided that sufficient time can be given to the extra demands of the demonstration of the Standards found in Code 5440-76.  It is estimated that at least 150 hours be spent planning, teaching, and writing.

Students are eligible for the practicum after successfully completing 18 credits in literacy (15 credits if matriculated before 7/2007) with a “B” or better and with their advisor’s approval. Three years of prior teaching experience are required. Students must notify the Coordinator of the M.Ed. Reading Program, Kristin Gehsmann, of their intention to take this practicum by October 15th for the spring practicum and by February 15th for the fall semester.

Credits: 3 cr.
