2 Multiple Subjects Program Group (MSPG) MISSION STATEMENT (an ongoing work in progress) Our mission is building democratic learning communities which celebrate diversity and support meaningful teaching and learning. Core Value: We support Communication and community building as fundamental values which permeate partnerships between CSUS and public schools. Equity and diversity The creation of caring and safe environments which nurture the physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and moral development of children Teaching as a reflective and collaborative process Actions, Goals, and Expectations We affirm Communities based on collaboration and trust at all levels in an atmosphere of open dialogue Learning communities that include children, families, teachers, administrators, university faculty members, and the local community Democratic participation in decision making, and in planning and assessing programs A strong commitment to low income, linguistically and culturally diverse communities That cultural and linguistic diversity are strengths upon which schools can build That cultural and linguistic diverse parents possess funds of knowledge which can benefit their children and our schools Environments that actively encourage empathy for others Responsible, democratic citizenship Teachers who inquire into their own practice Teachers who collaborate with other professionals to create a just society Environments which allow teachers to experiment and push boundaries in responsible ways to improve teaching, learning, and community empowerment

3 Creative and reflective pedagogy which promotes meaningful teaching and learning A balanced curriculum which serves the interests and needs of the whole child The use of multiple assessment strategies and indicators The promotion of active student learning Meaning-making related to real world situations Pedagogy which is relevant and accessible to diverse students Pedagogy that is responsible to community needs and inclusive of community knowledge The opportunity for students to pursue their interests in all subject areas and for all subject areas to be perceived as equally important The use of informal and formal assessments Ongoing diagnosis which leads to a reciprocal relationship between teaching and learning Assessments which reflect the strengths as well as the limitations of all learners

4 Expected Learning Outcomes The California Commission on Teaching Credentialing (CCTC) will be developing a Teaching Performance Assessment that Preliminary Teaching Credential candidates will have to pass. It will be based on groups of tasks (called Teacher Performance Expectations) credential candidates should be able to perform. These expectations are organized into six domains: Engaging and Supporting Students in Learning Creating and Maintaining Effective Environments for Student Learning Making Subject Matter Comprehensible to Students Planning Instruction and Designing Learning Experiences for Students Assessing Student Learning Developing as a Professional Educator Multiple Subjects Program faculties would like to use these standards for the Expected Learning Outcomes; however, the standards are in the developmental stage. The faculties, therefore, have decided to use the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP) as the Expected Learning Outcomes at this time for the credentialing students in the program. The CSTP is for the inservice teachers and expected to be somewhat similar to the new Standards and Teaching Performance Expectations. The 2042 Draft of the Standards and Teaching Performance Expectations (which will lead to the Teaching Performance Assessment) is out and discussed around the state at this time. After the final Standards and Teaching Performance Expectations, the Multiple Subjects Program will make the adjustments to the current program assessment plan. California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP) Standard One: For engaging and supporting all students in learning Teachers will be able to 1.1 Connect students prior knowledge, life experience, and interests with learning goals. 1.2 Use a variety of instructional strategies and resources to respond to students diverse needs. 1.3 Facilitate learning experiences that promote autonomy, interaction, and choice. 1.4 Engage students in problem solving, critical thinking, and other activities that make subject matter meaningful. 1.5 Promote self-directed, reflective learning for all students. Standard Two: For creating and maintaining effective environments for student learning Teachers will be able to

5 2.1 Create a physical environment that engages all students. 2.2 Establish a climate that promotes fairness and respect. 2.3 Promote social development and group responsibility. 2.4 Establish and maintain standards for student behavior. 2.5 Plan and implement classroom procedures and routines that support student learning. 2.6 Use instructional time effectively. Standard Three: For understanding and organizing subject matter for student learning Teachers will be able to 3.1 Demonstrate knowledge of subject matter content and student development. 3.2 Organize curriculum to support student understanding of subject matter. 3.3 Interrelate ideas and information within and across subject matter areas. 3.4 Develop student understanding through instructional strategies that are appropriate to the subject matter. 3.5 Use materials, resources, and technologies to make subject matter accessible to students. Standard Four: For planning instruction and designing learning experiences for all students. Teachers will be able to 4.1 Draw on and value students backgrounds, interests, and developmental learning needs. 4.2 Establish and articulate goals for student learning. 4.3 Develop and sequencing instructional activities and materials for student learning 4.4 Design short-term and long-term plans to foster student learning 4.5 Modify instructional plans to adjust for student needs. Standard Five: For assessing student learning Teachers will be able to 5.1 Establish and communicate learning goals for all students. 5.2 Collect and use multiple sources of information to assess student learning. 5.3 Involve and guide all students in assessing their own learning. 5.4 Use the results of assessments to guide instruction. 5.5 Communicate with students, families, and other audiences about student progress. Standard Six: For developing as a professional educator Teachers will be able to 6.1 Reflect on teaching practice and planning professional development. 6.2 Establish professional goals and pursue opportunities to grow professionally. 6.3 Work with communities to improve professional practice.

6 6.4 Work with families to improve professional practice. 6.5 Work with colleagues to improve professional practice. 6.6 Balance professional responsibilities and maintain motivation.

8 Indirect Assessment Program evaluation takes place at three levels: 1) the University initiates a self-study of each school; 2) the College of Education, through the ESSC, evaluates individual programs and the Multiple Subject Credential Program evaluates program outcomes for each student teaching Center; and 3) each Center self-evaluates through discussion at monthly Coordinator s and Center meetings. The self-study document is based on a report from a faculty member from outside the College. It consists of recommendations for change, based on interviews of faculty and review of relevant data, and commendations from work well done. (See self-study report for Department of Teacher Education and Department of Bilingual/Multicultural Education for 1996.) The ESSC administers a Program Evaluation Questionnaire to students as they are about to complete the Multiple Subject Credential Program. This document is shared with Center faculty in their meetings and used as a basis for center improvement. The outcomes are discussed in Center coordinators meetings as a way to identify issues and problems that cut across centers. This questionnaire is in the process of revision since the expected outcomes will be the new Teacher Performance Expectations. At this time, the questionnaire is based on the CSTP. (See the attachment) Ongoing program development and evaluation are achieved through direct contact and discussion with principals of training schools and cooperating teachers as well as with course instructors and supervisors in the program. Direct Assessment Each candidate prepares at least one unit plan and several lesson plans that include goals, objectives, strategies, activities, materials and assessment plans that are well defined and coordinated with each other, reflect cross-cultural and linguistic understandings, and provide equal access to the core curriculum. Preparation for Curricular and Instructional Planning Lesson plans, including instructional objectives, teaching strategies, classroom materials and assessment plans are discussed as an integral part of the seminar during observation and participation (EDTE 307) and as part of most, if not all, the subject area methods classes taken by Multiple Subject Credential students. Topics that address these issues include: planning, organizing and conducting instruction, learning objectives, lesson planning, lesson design etc. All Centers have similar topics as part of their Phase I seminars. Unit plans, with clearly stated goals, and sequenced effectively, are structured into the Programs at various points in different methods courses depending on the Center. For instance, social studies methods courses usually require a unit plan, implementation and reflection. Since the courses may be sequenced differently from Center to Center,

9 the unit plan assignment may not be handled identically, but all Centers have similar expectations. Field Experience Each Phase II and Phase III student teacher is evaluated using a standard student teacher evaluation form at a minimum of two times during each phase-midterm and end of term. Three people fill out these evaluation forms: the Cooperating Teacher, the student teacher, and the University Supervisor. The standard term requests responses reflecting the level of performance in areas that are directly related to this Standard: Produces clearly stated lesson plans, including objectives, strategies, materials and assessment which are coordinated and consistent with each other. Plans units of instruction with clearly stated goals, consisting of series of lessons in which at least one concept, skill or topic is taught fully and sequenced effectively. Plans and uses strategies, activities and materials that build upon students prior knowledge. Plans and uses strategies, activities and material that appeal to and challenge the diverse interest of the students in class. Plans and uses strategies, activities and materials that explore several styles of learning, such as oral, written, pictorial and tactile styles. Student teachers must demonstrate the ability to perform within the normal range of expectations (as observed by themselves, two Cooperating Teachers, and two University Supervisors) before they may complete the Program.

16 Plans for next Year It is difficult to continue the department assessment plan at this time. There are two major reasons for waiting before continuing the assessment plan. The Department of Teacher Education will have major program changes next year to meet the California Commission on Teaching Credentialing requirements. The credential program will have level I and level II. It is difficult to assess the program when there is no program. It makes more sense to work on the assessment after the program has been modified. The California Commission on Teaching Credentialing (CCTC) will be developing a Teaching Performance Assessment that Preliminary Teaching Credential candidates will have to pass. It will be based on groups of tasks (called Teacher Performance Expectations) credential candidates should be able to perform. The draft, SB2042, is in the field review. Survey materials are being mailed by the contractor, American Institutes for Research (AIR) to 15,200 potential respondents beginning the week of April 9, These studies include both a paper survey and a web-based survey option. The results of the two validity studies will be reviewed by the expert advisory panels during their July 2001 meetings, and reviewed again for alignment and congruence. Based on these reviews a final set of content specifications for Elementary Subject Matter Requirement and Teaching Performance Expectations will be recommended to the Commission for adoption. These adopted specifications will then be used by the contractor (yet to be identified) to develop the revised MSAT examination and the Teaching Performance Assessment. Since the Department of Teacher Education has decided to use these Teaching Performance Expectations as the learning outcomes for the program, it makes sense to wait until the expectations has been finalized. Once the expectations are finalized, the program assessment plan can make the changes on the expected outcomes, courses and outcomes matrix, exit survey, and student teacher evaluation forms.
