Allocate at least 20 hours in the field to support this practicum/field experience.
Complete this assignment within the “Practicum B” section of your “Case Study Analysis Template.”
Part 1: Assessment
Using the “Milestone Development Observation Chart,” record your observations of interactions in which the child engages. Pay particular attention to the developmental domains in association with classroom activity, peer and adult interaction, student strengths and weaknesses, and theories supporting behaviors.
In addition, create one other form of raw data (e.g. frequency chart, notes, academic or social/emotional evidence) that can be shared with your mentor teacher to develop a clear assessment of the child’s interactions.
Present your observations to your mentor teacher and discuss potential areas of needed support for the child in the area of interacting with peers and adults. In 250-500 words, identify which age-appropriate milestones the child is meeting, and where additional support might benefit him or her.
Part 2: Intervention Strategies
Based on your observations of the interactions of the child, design 2-3 instructional support intervention strategies. Select one developmental area from your observation chart and design strategies that meet the specific needs of the child in that area. These strategies can be designed to be implemented by you, or in support of your mentor.
In addition, design 1-2 at-home activities to provide support in the same developmental area. Summarize each intervention strategy and at-home activity in 50-100 words, and explain how each meets the needs of the child. It is not necessary to share these activities with the child’s parents/guardians at this time.
Support your findings with a minimum of three scholarly resources.
Use any remaining practicum/field experience hours to assist the teacher in providing instruction and support to the class.
Submit the completed sections of your “Case Study Analysis Template.”
