Field Blog & Digital Comic Strip Assessment Rubric

Your FieldBlog and Digital Comic Strip should demonstrate what you have been learning in ED 100. The concepts that are introduced and studied in class should be in dialogue with your reflections and observations from your school visits. As you are making observations, consider concepts and ideas developed in course readings and discussions. Be intentional by making specific references to course readings and discussions as you synthesize your field observations with what we have been exploring in class.

Distinguish each fieldblog post to your WebBlog with an appropriate title that includes FieldPost1 or FP2, etc.

Your FieldBlog and Digital Comic Strip is your opportunity to examine and insightfully critique your school observations, as well as to enhance your understanding and discernment about the different teacher licensure areas in the state of Ohio:

  • Early Childhood                    (PreK – 5th grade)
  • Middle Childhood                 (4th grade – 9th grade)
  • Adolescent/Young Adult     (7th grade – 12th grade)

The goal of maintaining a FieldBlog is to document and describe what you recognize as meaningful and relevant to the education and development of the children that you are preparing to work with in the future!  This is accomplished by reviewing your documentation of your initial observations and continues as you identify for focused consideration those events that were most memorable and significant for you.

(~1000 words or ~4 pages (plus three (3) 4-6 panel digital comic strips) and including a final summative post of themes and ideas that you have identified through this field blog assignment. In other words, the entire project, including three posts, an introduction and a summary, based on 10 hours of individual field observations, is to approximate 1000 words).
