DEAF 294: DEAF Capstone Sem & Practicum

DEAF 294 provides a culminating opportunity for pre-education majors and educational paraprofessionals in Deaf Education to effectively apply and integrate what they have gained in previous program courses and field assignments to preK-12 settings. In their practicum settings, students will be expected to use appropriate teaching methods and learning principles, conduct classroom instruction and activities, and manage behaviors in small and/or large groups, under the direction and supervision of a mentor teacher. Students will also be expected to communicate effectively in American Sign Language and English. In seminar sessions, students will be expected to problem-solve relevant issues, share pivotal learning incidents, and appraise their personal and professional growth. Students will also create a comprehensive portfolio, showcasing evaluations of their practicum performances, professional disposition and conduct, ethical behaviors, and knowledge of the field.
