Internship for practice in classrooms appropriate to elementary education related to curriculum design and assessment. Field experiences emphasize planning lessons that actively engage students in learning.
Currently, students enroll in EDEL 570 and 571 (3 credit hrs each). This proposal is designed to accomplish two goals:
The 570/571 designation was originally constructed to disaggregate students' performance across dimensions of internship performance. Viewing historical data, this disaggregation has not served its intended purpose as students have performed identically well across both dimensions in all but a very few cases. Given the burden of creating 2 distinct courses, with roughly 20 sections across each course, each fall term, the workload is not reasonable given the historical data in students' performance.
Your proposal is being returned for the following reason(s):
There are some issues with the syllabus
- Requires Discussion - The syllabus is not in the proper format, and as a result it is not clear how the course will be run.
--- The syllabus needs revision. Learning outcomes need to be revised. The typical statements were not included, including the Disability statement, Integrity statement, etc. Although they may not be applicable, I think they are still required. The syllabus is quite thorough, and appears to include all of the intern assignments. It's fine- but may be helpful to students if the assignments were handed out separately, with a summary of the assignments (and scoring) in the syllabus. Very thoughtfully written syllabus, but needs to be refined.
Please address the above and return this proposal, through all the channels, by November 21, 2016 at noon in order to be considered for approval by the Faculty Senate at the December meeting. Should your proposal not reach the committee by the stated deadline, the next Curricula and Courses review cycle will begin in January 2017. We are looking forward to your making this cycle.
