Students in the Class Act Program at Itasca Community College are required to register for and attend the Class Act Seminar each of the four semesters while at Itasca Community College. Should a student transfer in from another institution, that student is required to take the Class Act Seminar course each semester while attending ICC as a Class Act student.
The Class Act Seminar is a one-credit course. In order to continue in the Class Act Program, students must receive a passing grade each semester. The Class Act Seminar instructor is responsible for the actual workings of this course and will develop criteria for the course (along with the Class Act Director).
The purpose of the Class Act Seminar is twofold:
The Class Act Seminar is structured using the following components:
1. Classroom labs: Each student is required to complete a fifty-hour classroom lab in a local school district. Students should refer to the Classroom Lab guide for further information.
2. Guest Speakers: Guest speakers will present information on chosen topics and themes that align with and complement the curriculum.
3. Student Portfolios: Students will learn to make connections between their Class Act courses, Seminar curriculum, and classroom labs, and then organize these experiences into individual education portfolios.
Because the Class Act Seminar only meets once a week, attendance is mandatory. The Seminar instructor will provide additional information regarding the course's attendance policy
