EEC1011 Professionalism in Early Childhood Education

This course provides students with the opportunity to observe children, to gain experience working with children and to discuss what they see and learn with someone qualified to interpret behavior and to expose students to current knowledge about child development. Students will gain more understanding of the Code of Ethical Conduct and demonstrate the use of this code through their writings and reflections. While in the course, the student will develop a teaching portfolio, participate in professional employment scenarios and be observed in a childcare or public-school setting for the Florida Staff Credential. Students must have departmental approval before registering. This is a capstone course intended for the student to take the final semester. The field experience is composed of 80 clock hours conducted in an early childhood setting. To comply with Florida State Law, Chapter 402.305 2 (a), each prospective student must be fingerprinted and undergo a FDLE Level II background screening. The cost of these procedures is the responsibility of the student. Information received is confidential and is required to determine the eligibility of the prospective student to work with children.
