Practicum Culminating Project
Details coming soon

Practicum - Instructions for Culminating Project

ADD citation machine link DANNY LINK

 Practicum students complete a 25-page culminating project.  Students review their experiences in the graduate program and discuss components of the program that have been of particular value to them and why these program components have been of value.  Students discuss their practicum observation lessons, including strengths and limitations of the lessons, and what was discussed during the practicum conferences with the observing professor, including recommendations for strengthening teaching skills and building positive relationships with children.  Students use at least five articles from scholarly journals as references for a discussion of problems facing new teachers (in both general and special education), and the kinds of documented supports that have been found to help new teachers effectively respond to such problems. 

Students also present a case study of their work with an individual child.  Students work with a child who has a particular problem involving reading skills.  Students use an appropriate reading inventory or other assessment device to evaluate the nature of the child’s difficulties.  Students complete a literature review with abstracts of at least ten articles related to the area of the child’s reading difficulty and potential interventions fro remediation of the identified problem or set of problems.  Students describe in detail their goals in intervening and the specific intervention procedures they use, after which they describe the actual application of the intervention procedures and the child’s response to their intervention.  Students do a post-intervention assessment to determine the effectiveness of the intervention and then discuss the implications of their work and results for continued work with the child and for formulating related additional research questions.  (Practicum advisors will distribute and discuss instructions for the case study during the first practicum group meeting). 

Students conclude their projects with a discussion of how their philosophies of education have developed over the course of their graduate studies and the nature of their current ideas on how they might approach selected aspects of their work.  Throughout the culminating project, readings from courses should be integrated into the discussion whenever possible.

Papers should have title pages that include all identifying information.  Where appropriate, subheadings should be used for organizational purposes.  Pages should be numbered.  Papers should follow APA format.  (APA sheets are included in your student practicum guide). 

Culminating projects are submitted with other practicum materials in a professionally appropriate binder.  (Details may be discussed with our practicum advisors).
