  Course Description
Students are placed in school media centers with tenured and certified library media specialists (LMS) for two (2), 20-day practicum experiences; one placement is at the elementary level (LIS 525E) and one at the secondary level (LIS 525S). Students working under a Supplementary Certificate have a special project that needs to be completed. Students are supervised by a practicing library media specialist and a member of the DLIS faculty. The completion of a professional portfolio is required (LIS 525P). A student may complete both the 525E and the 525S practicum in one setting for a total of 40 days. This type of placement will facilitate the edTPA requirements of teaching 3 lessons as part of a unit plan by providing the student more time for completion of the requirement. (Commissioner's Regulations section 52.21b). You must ensure that some of the required modules for field experience mandated hours in 524 have been completed at the alternate level. If you are completing both 525S and 525E practicums in separated schools, in the practicum setting where you choose to complete the edTPA requirements, you will likely need more than the minimum requirement of 20 days in that setting; it is strongly suggested that you complete 30 days in that setting. You must take responsibility for discussing your practicum placements with the course instructor. If you have a certification in another subject area and are working under a Supplementary Certificate you will not complete a practicum but will complete a special project. You will also have a designated professional who will evaluate your performance in the library. You need to relay the contact information for this person to the course instructor. Requirements for this project are provided in this syllabus. [From Fall 2018 syllabus]
