Early Field Placement in Education Programs.
Giddings, Louise R.
Noting that both the college and the collaborating schools gain from early field placement (prior to student teaching) in education programs, this paper presents a prototype for early placement practicums based on 10 years experience in providing practicums for reading methods courses for Medgar Evers College, City University of New York (Brooklyn). The first section discusses planning for early placement practicums, and course objectives, methodology, and evaluation of students in the practicum. The second section presents suggestions for selecting schools for early placement--whether for regular day programs or for after-school early placements. The third section discusses preparing students for the practicum, including before beginning the field assignment and beginning in the field site. The fourth section addresses the role of the college supervisor in the practicum. The conclusion is that all participants should reflect on and in some way give an evaluation at the end of a course practicum. (Contains nine references.) (RS)
