Final Documentation & Planning – Course Summation


In this course participants will learn to observe and document children's work and activity in the classroom. And, through reflection, sharing, and discussion, we will learn how careful observation helps us uncover children's interests and strengths. We will use multiple intelligences and this idea of personalized "tool kits" to talk about children's interests, their preferred ways of exploring and engaging in the world.

Conducting and documenting observations is a central practice in early childhood education.  We early childhood educators learn with and about our young learners so we can create and adapt the experiences and environments to the students we know in the classroom. Through observation-based insights, early childhood educators come to understand their young students as individuals, gather the raw material needed to create  learning environments and experiences that give students full access to their "MI tool kits"and, over time, allow children unfettered access to their multiple intelligences "tool kits."  

A goal at the heart of this course: Participants will recognize how children learn more deeply (and with joy) when they follow their own curiosities.

In this course, teachers in the MII Teacher Certification (TC) Program continue to deepen their understanding of and experience with translating MI theory well and authentically in their own settings. Through course activities, and in conjunction with work they undertake in their own settings, participants build their understanding and repertoire of Keystones to MI Practice: those beliefs, values and practices that define an "MI" classroom or program.

Successful completion of the Teacher Practicum Course results in participants': deep understanding of MI and its implications for the classroom, and of the fundamental components-keystones-of an MI-based classroom; knowledge and repertoire of Keystone practices for their own settings; and, in combination with a successful on-site practicum experience, initial MI Teacher Certification.
