Requirements and Assignments

 

Outlines of Your Teaching Plans: Each week complete an outline of your lesson plans for the upcoming week to share with your mentor teacher and faculty supervisor on the Friday before you will teach those lessons. Discuss your outlines with your mentor teacher no later that Friday afternoon and email them to your faculty no later than Sunday evening. You can find the outline template on the MIT 08 website -- http://academic.evergreen.edu/curricular/mit2008/ -- click on Resources, Fall 2007

 

Complete Lesson Plans: You must complete lesson plans, using the MIT 08 lesson plan template (or using your own template that includes all the required lesson plan elements) for each lesson you plan and teach. These plans should be kept in chronological sequence in your student teaching portfolio. Plans should be completed in time for your cooperating teacher to give you feedback before you teach – no later than Monday morning for Monday and Tuesday plans and no later than Wednesday morning for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday plans. You must also bring your printed plans from the most recent five days to seminar each week (for our Tuesday seminar, bring plans from the previous Wednesday through that Tuesday). You can find the template and list of required elements on the MIT 08 website -- http://academic.evergreen.edu/curricular/mit2008/ -- click on Resources, Fall 2007

 

Post-Teaching Reflections: Reflections about each lesson taught are to be added to your lesson plan, to include some discussion about the degree to which you reached your student learning objectives and what it is you learned or will do differently based on your experience teaching this lesson. Additionally, during your weeks of full time student teaching, you must complete a summary reflection for each week.

 

Preparing for Faculty Observations: For each of your scheduled observations (4-5 this quarter) you must have a copy of your lesson plan printed and ready for your faculty observer when he or she arrives. You may also be asked to have a copy of your seating chart ready for your faculty.

 

EALR Project and Preparation for the State Pedagogy Assessment Observation: The EALR 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 (see the Student Teaching Handbook, Section 2, pages 50-56) . The data collection for the EALR project must be done during your full time student teaching. The EALR Project is due to your faculty supervisor November 6 – submit both a printed copy and email a copy to your supervisor.

 

You must also complete a draft of the State Pedagogy Assessment Record, parts # 1-5 on pages 69-70 before your State Pedagogy observation. This observation will occur sometime in in October.

 

Videotape of Your Teaching: You must have yourself videotaped for approximately 30-50 minutes, 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– however, its primary use will be for a project during winter quarter. Please tell your camera person to 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 the process for getting the necessary permission with your cooperating teacher.

 

Student Teaching Portfolio: 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) weekly summative reflections written during your full time student teaching experience. Your faculty supervisor may ask you to include your EALR project in the same binder as the Portfolio.

 

Evaluations: 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: https://www2.evergreen.edu/myevals/index.php
