Clinical field experience a: literacy in the classroom

 

Allocate at least 4 hours in the field to support this field experience.

Literacy development among emergent readers is a critical component of the early childhood classroom. Data collection is key to the success of a literacy program. Using data to drive instructional practices demonstrates purposeful and targeted teaching methods.

During this field experience, observe a Pre-K to 3rd grade classroom. Focus on what literacy interventions look like in the classroom. In preparation for Clinical Field Experience B, informally assess the literacy skills or needs of students. Work with the mentor teacher to identify three small groups of students with 2-3 students per group. There should be no overlapping among these groups.

After the observation, interview the mentor teacher about literacy development, assessment strategies, and the use of data to guide instruction. In addition, discuss the process for selecting the groups, and the rationale behind the activities, including any data involved in the decision-making process.

Use any remaining field experience hours to assist the teacher in providing instruction and support to the class.

Write a 250-500 word reflection of your observations and interview, focusing on literacy development, assessment strategies, and the use of data to guide instruction.

In your interview, include questions covering the following:

  • How do you plan lessons/activities based on the current literacy development of your students?
  • How do you modify assessments to understand the comprehension level of students at different literacy levels?
  • How do you know if a student does not understand the material and how do you change your immediate instruction to help with the learning?
  • How do you use assessment data to create learning groups or to modify lessons to meet the needs of all learners?

In addition, reflect on the process for selecting the groups, and the rationale behind the activities, including any data involved in the decision-making process from your observations and experiences.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
