    • Attendance will be taken in each class

    • If you miss class, you should access the appropriate PowerPoint lecture on Blackboard

    • There are no make-ups for additional absences

  • Attendance (practicum)

    • Attendance at practicum is mandatory

      • If you cannot attend practicum:

        • Call the parent and the instructor

          • If the instructor visits your practicum at any time and you are not in attendance without an excused absence, 50% of you practicum grade is forfeited

          • If the parent brings the child and you are not in attendance and did not call the parent to indicate so, 50% of your practicum grade is forfeited

          • If both of the above occur on any given day you will forfeit 100% of your practicum grade

Policies - continued

  • If you lose all of your practicum points due to absence, you will be withdrawn from your placement AND YOU WILL FORFEIT ALL PRACTICUM RELATED POINTS!

  • Observations

    • There will be at least one formal observation of each student’s practicum

    • Informal drop-in visits by the instructor are frequent

    • There is a grading rubric for the practicum visit; it is stored on the Blackboard site under assessments  although the visits are informational and instructional in nature, there are expectations that will be discussed in class

    • After the formal observation the student and instructor will discuss (1) the placement (2) the observation and (3) any questions or issues the student has pertaining to the placement.

  • Your will be notified by MSU E-mail one week in advance as to when your observation will take place

    • I you are off campus, notify your supervisor of the visit beforehand

  • If I arrive and you are not there, and I have not been forewarned, you will be removed from your practicum, not re-assigned, and, will lose all practicum related points.
