3 M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education PreK-4 and Early Childhood Education PreK-4 Certification Program Program Overview In 2008, the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) revised the organizational structure of the Teacher Preparation and Certification Programs for those colleges and universities that offer programs leading to teacher certification. Early Childhood Education certification qualifies teachers to instruct in grades PreK - 4 (ages 3 to 9). Additionally, the program includes three Special Education courses and one course focused on English Language Learners (ELL) as specified by PDE. The Early Childhood Education program was designed to prepare graduate students to work in child-centered classrooms using developmentally appropriate instructional and behavioral practices. It provides course content and field experiences that take into consideration the needs of diverse learners in inclusive educational settings. The program provides opportunities to develop communication and collaboration skills. Such skills are necessary for interacting with the various stakeholders involved in children s education including students, parents, colleagues, administrators, and community members. Program Goals Goals for the M.Ed./certification programs in Early Childhood Education PreK-4 are to (1) prepare and graduate students to be ready for doctoral programs and teaching positions in public and private schools PreK-4, (2) prepare students to successfully complete standardized testing (Praxis I and II; beginning April 2, 2012 tests are the Pre-service Academic Performance Assessment and the Pennsylvania Educator Certification Test for Grades PreK-4) required for PDE teaching certification (3) provide a nurturing, supportive environment in which students will gain the knowledge, skills, and professional dispositions to effectively advance the learning of all young children (4) provide opportunities for faculty and students to conduct research that adds to the knowledge base in the field of Education, (5) provide opportunities for students to conduct themselves in accordance with Pennsylvania s Code of Professional Practice and Conduct for Educators, and (6) provide opportunities for faculty to participate in ongoing professional development through membership in professional education associations and other education-related agencies designed to improve the educational lives of children.

8 COURSE DESCRIPTIONS EDU STUDENT TEACHING (12 credit hours) The course aims to review important theories and practices in education resulting from recent experimental research, to prepare the students for a period of student teaching in cooperating schools, and to supervise and direct an actual teaching experience in such schools. This course is offered to candidates who are not full-time classroom teachers when signing for this course. Since substitute teachers are not full-time teachers, they fall into this category. Lincoln University s Office of Student Teaching will make the necessary arrangements with the local school districts to have student teaching candidates assigned to classrooms that already have certified teachers who serve as cooperating teachers or mentors. Student teaching candidates will be placed in pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, or grades 1 to 4 classrooms where they will spend 14 weeks as classroom teachers closely monitored by the cooperating teachers and a graduate faculty member from Lincoln University. A certified and experienced classroom teacher commonly known as a cooperating teacher must be present in the class with the student teacher when the student teacher performs his or her teaching duties. The university faculty assigned to teach this course will hold post-site visitation meetings with student teachers to discuss the strengths and weaknesses observed during the visit. Such visitations must take place 4 to 6 times for a minimum of minutes each visit during the semester. The university professor will remain at the site to the end of the session to meet with the student teacher and the cooperating teacher to discuss about the classroom observation. EDU STUDENT TEACHING (6 credits hours) The course aims to review important theories and practices in education resulting from recent experimental research, to prepare the students for a period of student teaching in the school where they regularly teach, and to supervise and direct an actual teaching experience in their own classrooms. Non-certified full-time classroom teachers who run their own classrooms without the company of certified teachers may sign for this course. In other words, interns or student teachers who possess an emergency certificate may sign for this course. In this case, instead of a cooperating teacher, a mentor will be assigned by the school administration to monitor the student teachers overall classroom performance. The mentor could be an experienced and certified teacher from the next classroom or from the school where he or she makes frequent visits to the student teacher s classroom for evaluation. The university professor assigned to teach EDU will make 4 to 6 visitations of minutes each during the semester and hold post-observation meetings with the student teacher to discuss the observed strengths and weaknesses as well as meeting with the mentor and student teacher together or separately as needed. The student teachers will perform the teaching duties in Pre-K to 4 th grade classrooms.
