There are five activities you must complete before the TCE™ Level 1 course begins. Each of these activities is important for you to succeed in this course. You may update your profile and order your course materials at any time. The last two activities will be available one week after registration closes.
Activity 1: Update Profile
Please go to your profile and update any information that may have changed since the last time you took an online course. It’s important that we have your current e-mail address!
Activity 2: Order Course Materials
Course materials must be ordered early enough for them to be delivered to you before the course begins. USA students please allow two weeks for processing and shipping time. International students please allow four-six weeks.
Activity 3: Connect with a Proctor
This course requires three practicums providing opportunities for you to practice the skills you are learning in a controlled situation. This will prepare you for teaching children in a real-world setting. You will need a proctor to observe these three practicums. At this time the administrator is attempting to locate a proctor for you. One week after registration closes, read the Proctor/Practicum Information section. This section will provide information about your proctor and what you should do with your proctor before the course begins.
Activity 4: Locate Real-World Teaching Assignment Location
TCE Level 1 also requires five teaching sessions with children allowing you to put into practice the methods you have learned. One week after registration closes, read the Real-World Teaching Assignments section. This section will provide information about securing a real-world teaching location.
Note concerning Real-World teaching assignments while social distancing requirements are in place: If it is not possible for you to complete your real-world teaching assignments in a face-to-face Good News Club® setting, you have the option of teaching children online, following the guidelines found in the Good News Across the Web Online Manual.
