Early Childhood & Childhood Education Advising

On-Site Writing Sample

Spring 2020 Writing Sample Dates

Current students in the Early Childhood & Childhood Education B-6 program who are on track to take Fieldwork I and Teaching Reading I in Fall 2020 must successfully complete a short on-site writing assessment as a Checkpoint 2 requirement.
The sample will be evaluated by the EC & CE faculty on writing conventions (grammar, spelling, etc.) and organization and development of topic.

Students will be asked for photo ID at the time of the assessment. If accommodations are required for a documented disability, the student should contact the Disability Resource Center at drc@newpaltz.edu or 845-257-3020 no less than two weeks prior to the desired date.
