*see faculty list above for seminar locations

For all seminars: be prepared to bring in materials (lesson plans, reflections, etc.) that may be requested by the faculty

Preparing for faculty observations


For each of your scheduled observations (4-5 this quarter) have a copy of your seating chart and your lesson plan printed and placed where you would like your faculty observer to sit. Also, let the faculty know what, in particular, you would like him/her to observe and take note of during that particular lesson.

EALR Project

October 23 (earlier if possible): State Pedagogy portions of EALR Project sent to faculty (Classroom Characteristics, Student Characteristics, Lesson Plans, Instructional Plan Rationale, State Assessment Record)

November 6: Completed EALR Project due

This project is described on page 14 of the Student Teaching Handbook, Section 1. This project includes completing the written preparation associated with the State Pedagogy Assessment Instrument, described in the Student Teaching Handbook, Section 2,  pages 20, 22,and 23 and 26-31 and requires that you complete, on your computer, a draft of the Assessment Record for the Instrument, which you can download at:

This project must be done during your full time student teaching. The written preparation for the project, including the Assessment Record, is due to your faculty no later than October 23 (start of week 8), and earlier if possible. The full EALR Project is due November 6.

Videotapes of your teaching

    September 8: by this date confirm or obtain parent/guardian permission to videotape

    September 29: First videotape completed

    October 31: Second videotape completed

Twice during the quarter, once in September and once in October, make arrangements to have a lesson videotaped. Each videotaping should result in approximately 30 minutes of footage, including the start of the lesson, the end of the lesson, and representative scenes throughout the lesson. The taping must be done using a digital video camera (not a VHS camera). You should watch the tape to be sure the taping was successful and to get some initial feedback – however, its primary use will be for a project during winter quarter. Please be sure that the tape includes footage of both you and the students. This project requires that you verify, and if necessary, get, parent/guardian permission to videotape their children – discuss this issue with your cooperating teacher.

Student teaching portfolio
 November 10: Portfolio due

This portfolio is due to your faculty during the final week of student teaching; it must include a) your lesson plans, b) reflections for each lesson taught (added to each lesson plan after it is taught), c) a summative reflection on your strengths, key lessons learned and lingering questions that out of your student teaching  and d) a copy of your self-evaluation.

Evaluations November 13: Self Evaluation and Evaluation of Faculty due

By Monday of Evaluation Week a draft of your self evaluation and your evaluation of faculty are due; you will be meeting individually with your faculty supervisor during Evaluation Week. You can get evaluation forms and complete the evaluations on-line at:

Masters project

November 13-17: Master's Project returned
