This comprehensive text covers up-to-date, helpful information and 'how tos' for early childhood education students enrolled in a student teaching practicum course. This text clarifies the students' interactions with their college course supervisor(s) while clearly explaining the student's professional duties and responsibilities, and the mechanics of hands-on teaching. Chapters are designed to provoke contemplative and reflective student teacher thought, and encourage development of teacher competencies and skills to facilitate successful course completion. The text promotes the understanding of professionally accepted practice, ethics, classroom management, and individualized and group program planning and instruction. Communication skills, Case studies, examples, charts and visuals are presented throughout, and case scenarios apprise readers of real-life situations and children that other student teachers have encountered. Special- needs children and infant-toddler classroom placement particulars are addressed, as is the development of school-home partnerships that enhance children's life long learning, and educational success.
