Prerequisites

It is advisable to have completed Practicum II and to be enrolled in the following second-year subjects:

 
  • Learning and Development II.
  • Languages and learning.
  • Management and innovation in the mathematics classroom.
 
Practicum II is intended for students to deepen their analysis and understanding of teaching and learning processes and human development in the primary education stage. This internship is developed intensively over a period of seven weeks, thus favouring the student's immersion in the school: At first, the student will refelct on teaching practice based on systematised observation and analysis. Then, ina second stage, the student will have to intervene as a professional and guide their own reflection on the basis of their performance.
 
In order to be able to take this course, it is mandatory to have a negative certificate from the Central Register of Sexual Offenders. It is the student's responsibility to request it in order to be able to provide it to the centre before the start of the work placement period.
 
 

 

Objectives and Contextualisation

 

Without losing sight of the whole of the Primary Education stage, students will follow a class group in a specific cycle. In order to deepen the knowledge of the teaching-learning processes, this subject is taught by teachers from three departments who will work in a coordinated way:

  • Department of Developmental and Educational Psychology.
  • Language and Literature Didactics Unit
  • Unit of Didactics of Mathematics

The main aim of these placements is to acquire the professional skills which, as future teachers, will enable them to analyse, design and develop teaching-learning processes in two fundamental areas of the Primary Education curriculum: languages and mathematics.

Assessment

In order to be assessed, the following requirements must be met:

- 100% attendance in the timetable of the teaching staff at the placement centre, following the full working hours of the group's teacher (and compliance with the full timetable of the teaching staff, approx. 7 hours per day)

- a minimum of 80% attendance at the faculty's tutorial seminars.

At any time during the stay at the centre, the school may issue a justified report stating that the student is unable to continue the placement. If this happens, the student will automatically fail the practicum and the numerical grade on the student's transcript will be a 3.

In order to pass this practicum, each of the blocks of activities (seminars/tutorials, stay at the centre and learning portfolio) must be passed with a gradeof 5 or higher. By default, the final grade for the practicum will be a 4. 

It is compulsory to hand in the different documents of the learning portfolio within the established deadlines. Students should review the documents already handed in if requested by the teacher; once documents have been scored as part of the Learning Folder, they can no longer be modified.

In order to pass this subject, the student must show, in the activities proposed, a good general communicative competence, both orally and in writing, and a good command of Catalan, the language used in the subject as stated in the teaching guide. From the 3rd year of the Degree the student must have shown a competence equivalent to level C2 of the MECR. Thus, in all activities (individual and group), linguistic correctness, writing and formal aspects of presentation will be taken into account. Students must be able to express themselves fluently and correctly and must show a high degree of understanding that they understand academic texts correctly. An activity may be returned (not assessed) or failed if the teacher considers that it does not meet these linguistic requirements.

In order to be able to assess the students' learning progress and in accordance with the University's Regulations on Rights and Duties, it is necessary that their activities are original versions prepared by the students themselves and that they demonstrate understanding of the contents of the subject and reflection on them. and reflection on the contents of the subject. Activities that do not respect this premise, given that it will not be possible to assess them, may be assessed in terms of student learning and will therefore be failed. Failure in the evaluation activities is a reason for failing the subject, without the right to recovery.

The assessment criteria for each activity are detailed below:

Seminars and individual or group tutorials:

  • Attendance
  • Active and quality participation
  • Delivery of documents within the set deadlines
  • Quality of the documents submitted, both from the point of view of content and communicative competence.
  • Oral communicative competence in Catalan, equivalent to C2 of the MECR.

Stay at the school centre:

  • Attendance and punctuality (teaching timetable).
  • Level of professionalism
  • Level of analysis and participation
  • Collaboration with theteaching staff
  • Relations with the group-class
  • Interventions developed
  • Capacity for reflection, especially in the internship process.
  • Communicative competence, both oral and written, in Catalan, equivalent to C2 of the MECR.

Learning portfolio

Individual work on:

  • Observations made at the centre
  • Their interventions in the classroom.
  • Reflection on your own learning process

 

Mastering of academic language in Catalan, equivalent to C2 of the MECR, will be required.
