ECE165L: Practicum I - Observation, Assessment, and Documentation

Credits 3 Lab Hours 6 Class Hours 1

Practicum I is the first of two practicum experiences where the students conduct an in-depth child study that includes documenting, interpreting, and assessing child observations. Students create, manage, and use portfolio documentation to generate invitations that support a child’s individual goals (set by the student, mentor teacher, and family of the child). Students summarize, in narrative form, a child’s growth in developmental domains. All of this is used to plan out two parent conferences. Students will complete 60 Practicum hours at a college approved Early Childhood program and may not be able to complete hours at their worksite.


ECE121L, ECE123L, ECE124L, and ECE126L. ECE126L may be taken concurrently.
