Focused Portfolios I:  Implementing the Focused Portfolios Assessment Process

Focused Portfolios is a system for documenting a child's growth and development using a planned structure that captures and illustrates all areas of development and progress using developmentally appropriate milestones that coordinate with the Oklahoma Early Learning Guidelines for ages Birth through Five.  These two days of training and assignments prepare teachers and give them time to practice using the techniques, tools, and strategies for implementing the system.  Teachers begin to utilize information gained from the observation and assessment to plan and adapt classroom procedures and routines to meet the individual needs of the children in a way that is confidential and accurate.  They also begin their parent conference plans by integrating information gained from observations into an organized format which includes goals and descriptions that support child development.  12 hours total = 1.2 CEUs

Cost:  $20
