Constructing a knowledge base across classroom contexts: Pre-service teachers assess language and literacy in an urban head start program

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    The purpose of this chapter is to focus on a partnership between the Center for Family Services Head Start in Camden New Jersey and Rowan University Early Childhood majors. As a service to the preschool and to engage in real-life learning, candidates administered early-literacy assessments to 90 children enrolled at the Pine Street Head Start. The project provided candidates with authentic experiences, wherein they examined the range of literacy skills demonstrated by the children. The project goal was to provide external assessments to assist Head Start teachers in preparing preschoolers for the requirements of Common Core State Standards.
