M.Ed. Candidates Present Practicum Projects

 

Curry College Master of Education program candidates presented their practicum projects at the Milton campus on May 9, 2016. The projects represent the culmination of work completed in the practicum, a course in which students acquire full-time teaching experience under the guidance of a skilled educator in a school setting that meets state licensure requirements. Via posters and other displays, students synthesize and articulate the impact of their teaching on students and classroom learning.

M.Ed. candidates pursuing an Elementary Education or Moderate Disabilities license simultaneously provided individual presentations in a table top and exposition style atmosphere throughout the evening. Candidates shared their analysis of student learning based on units of study such as vocabulary, poetry, and mathematics with diverse learners of varying ages in a wide array of school settings.

"This event is a demonstration of state-required skills the candidates need to master, but it's also a celebratory event," said Don Gratz, Curry College M.Ed. Director and Department Chair.  "We're celebrating skill, tenacity, and the fact that we're about to send out a new team of teachers who are well-prepared to do a great job for their students."
