This is the 3rd class in a series of 3 when following the NJ Career and Technical Education:Teaching and Training career cluster pathway.
A Dual Credit Learning Program
Child Development & Early Childhood Education 3: Internship/ Independent Study
[Students must compete level 2 before enrolling in this course.]
This school year will have a different flavor for you, 3rd year students.
Traditionally, this level class is assigned a teacher’s classroom from Bullock School, where they will become the teacher’s assistant, helping students, grading papers, building bulletin boards, and more.
Due to the Covid-19 virus, we are currently in the planning stages of this part of the program. I will provide more information as it becomes available. We do not want these students to miss this part of the experience, as it makes a difference in the learning and applicability of what they have learned in the classroom, but alas, we are forced to make some changes.
Students will have access to the “teaching” online learning suite that includes the textbook, workbook and other resource materials. Access will be granted via the course Schoology page, as soon as it is up and running.
Students will mainly be working as independent study but also having live instruction on scheduled days.
Students will be keeping a journal of work experiences for in and out of the classroom. The school year begins with review and assisting in preparation of the Little Bulldogs Nursery School.
