The thirdedition of Carroll Tyminski’s Your Early Childhood Practicum and Student Teaching Experience: Guidelines for Success is infused with a realness factor, practical guidelines, and a compelling writing style that will connect with time-starved student teachers —those students who are assuming the responsibilities of teaching young children while receiving guidance and supervision in a capstone, practicum, or student teaching experience. The content provides key guidelines to guide each student teacher to a successful conclusion of their field experience. From her experiences coordinating student teaching program and supervising student teachers, the author presents the most important information and strategies that student teachers need, with a special focus on professional behavior, lesson planning, portfolio development, diverse family structures, cultural diversity, inclusion, and working with children who have special needs. The most current content on national and state standards, the reauthorization of NCLB, and assessment, are also given. This must-have manual guides students from the early days of preparing to begin the practicum, through the final days of leaving, as well as everything in between.
