Requirements and Assignments

 

Outlines of Your Teaching Plans: Each week, by the end of the day on Friday, discuss your lesson plans for the upcoming week to share with your mentor teacher. By the end of the weekend (no later than Sunday evening), email an outline of your teaching plans for the week to your faculty supervisor. Be sure to do this each week to keep your supervisor informed about your work in the classroom.

 

Complete Lesson Plans: Create written lesson plans, each with all the required lesson plan elements (see Student Teaching Handbook, Section 1 page 13 and the brief points below), for each lesson you develop and teach during your student teaching experience. Keep these plans in chronological sequence in your student teaching portfolio. Plans should be completed in time for your cooperating teacher to give you feedback on them before you teach.

Brief Description of a Complete Lesson Plan

       A description of the outcome/objectives you are teaching toward plus EALRs, GLEs or other references to state standards related to these outcomes

       Assessments as appropriate for the particular lesson (e.g., pre, formative-, summative, formal, informal)

       Description of the learning activities and teaching procedures, including accommodations, questions, materials

       Congruency (alignment) between all three above

 

Post-Teaching Reflections: After you teach your lessons, reflections about each one must 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.

 


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.

 

Preparation for the State Pedagogy Assessment Observation: We will be doing a shorter version of the EALR project this spring to include just those elements needed for the State Pedagogy Observation. Your Pedagogy Observation will take place when you are teaching every day you will arrange a specific date with your faculty supervisor.

Before the observation you must complete:

      The Classroom and Student Characteristics Form,

      An Instructional Plan Rationale,

      Instructional Plans for each lesson taught in the unit or series of lessons connected with your observed lesson,

      An electronic version of the Pedagogy Assessment Scoring Rubric with parts 1-5 filled out supported by the information in the above 3 documents

 

Student Teaching Portfolio: This portfolio is due to your faculty on the Tuesday of your final week of student teaching, June 3; it must include the following:

      All lesson plans with your reflections

      Notes and your associated lesson plan or lesson draft from the grade level seminar on April 15.

      Written reflections prepared after the April 22nd seminar related to feedback you gathered from your students about their awareness of their own learning outcomes, etc.

      Notes and your associated lesson plan or lesson draft from the grade level seminar on May 6

      Written reflection: Cultural Encapsulation Final Reflection (to be drafted in seminar, May 20)

 

Evaluations: By Monday of Evaluation Week, June 9 your self evaluation and your evaluation of faculty are due; please bring copies when you meet individually with your faculty supervisor during Evaluation Week.
