Grade : 11 - 12

Kindergarten Apprentice Teacher is designed to acquaint students with learning styles, characteristics of young learners, lesson planning and teaching techniques. As the course progresses, students will observe one period and teach five pre-planned lessons in a kindergarten classroom.

Each student must contact and contract with a kindergarten teacher who is receptive to their presence in the class, and that the student is able to travel to the elementary school for 30-45 minutes one day a week for 6 weeks to observe and present lessons. These classroom visits usually begin the fifth week of class.

During Term 2, students observe for one period in a pre-kindergarten classroom and for another in a first grade classroom. These visits give students the opportunity to observe how the school curriculum begins in the pre-kindergarten classroom and spirals through the kindergarten and first grade classroom building on and expanding the skills taught the previous years. These contacts and observations usually occur during Weeks 10 and 11.

Each student will be evaluated on weekly contributions to discussions, reading assignments, written lesson plans and delivery, as well as a variety of other experiences and assignments related to understanding the cognitive processes inherent in young children. Each student will also come away from this experience with a new appreciation for the happy, loving outlook that kindergarten students have for their world and the people in it.
