Your Early Childhood Practicum and Student Teaching Experience: Guidelines for Success is designed for students who are assuming the responsibilities of teaching young children while receiving guidance and supervision.

This text offers both theory and practical application to guide each student to a successful conclusion of the practicum and student teaching experience.
