1 MARSHALL UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF EDUCATION TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAM Revised: August, 2011

2 All teacher candidates will create a Teacher Candidate Work Sample (TCWS) analyzing a sample of their work and the degree to which their students have learned. They will also make an oral presentation to demonstrate communication skills as they explain the contents of the TCWS. The purpose of the TCWS is to facilitate critical and reflective thinking about the teaching and the degree to which students have learned. The TCWS will also be a part of the assessment of knowledge and performance in relation to the West Virginia Professional Teaching Standards (WVPTS). The oral presentation is an assessment of the presentation skills and the ability to articulate thoughts about the semester.

3 GOALS TCWS Standard: The teacher candidate sets realistic goals that he/she would like to accomplish during the student teaching placement. WV Professional Teaching Standards: 1, 4 List 3-5 goals that will enhance your professional growth and teaching performance. Some examples of goals might be: To create a positive learning environment To find ways to integrate technology into my unit and lessons To improve communication skills To address educational needs of diverse learners At least one goal should be directed toward your specific content area. Suggested page length: ½ of a page GOALS Candidate goals are insightful, reasonable and attainable. GOALS OF TEACHING Candidate goals are reasonable and attainable. Candidate goals are reasonable but not attainable. Candidate goals are neither reasonable nor attainable. SCORE

4 CONTEXTUAL FACTORS TCWS Standard: The teacher candidate uses information about the learning-teaching context and student individual differences to set the learning goal and objectives and plan instruction and assessment. WV Professional Teaching Standards: 2, 5 Identify relevant factors and how they may affect the learning-teaching process. Include any supports and challenges that affect instruction and student (Caution: Comments on the community or students that are negative, prejudicial, or stereotypical are not helpful in completing this assignment. Use good judgment in selecting and describing your contextual factors as this document may be reviewed in the licensure process.) Read the scoring rubric in advance and organize your Contextual Factors using the following subheadings: A. Community, District, and School Factors Address topics that could affect teaching and learning, such as geographic location, community and school population, socio-economic profile, race/ethnicity, political climate, community support for education. B. Classroom Factors Address classroom factors that affect teaching and learning such as physical features, availability of technology equipment, the extent of parental involvement, classroom rules and routines, grouping patterns, scheduling, classroom arrangement. C. Student Characteristics Identify student characteristics you must consider as you design instruction and assess Include factors such as age, gender, race/ethnicity, special needs, achievement/developmental levels, culture, language, interests, students skill levels. D. Instructional Implications Using the contextual factors you have recorded in A, B, and C above, identify and prioritize at least 4 implications for your teaching and assessment. In your written description, you may want to number the most important contextual factors and their matching implications to ensure community, district, school, classroom, and student characteristics have been carefully considered in identifying implications. E. Content Specific Factors Identify content specific factors that must be considered as you plan your unit, such as content series, lab instruction, writing across the curriculum. ***For each factor you describe, you must analyze how that factor impacts teaching and Suggested Page Length: 3-4 pages COMMUNITY, DISTRICT & SCHOOL FACTORS CLASSROOM FACTORS STUDENT CHARACTERISTICS INSTRUCTIONAL IMPLICATIONS CONTENT SPECIFIC FACTORS Candidate displays complex of the community and school that may affect Candidate displays complex of the classroom that may affect Candidate displays complex of the students that may affect Candidate provides complex implications for instruction and assessment based on student individual differences and community, school, and classroom characteristics.

5 LEARNING GOALS AND OBJECTIVES TCWS Standard: The teacher candidate sets significant, challenging, varied and appropriate the learning goal and objectives based on state/district content standards. WV Professional Teaching Standards: 1, 2, 3 You will create a framework for your unit to provide and justify objectives that are logically organized and move students toward achieving the learning goal. Read the scoring rubric in advance and use the chart below to provide the following information: A. BIG IDEA Identify a clear unit outcome or learning goal based on the State Core Curriculum (not the activities) that will guide the planning, delivery and assessment of your unit. This goal should define what you expect students to know and be able to do at the end of the unit. B. STANDARDS Cite the state or district standard(s)/objective(s) used as a basis for the unit outcome with all reference numbers. C. STUDENT OBJECTIVES (Measurable skills from the unit KUDs that move the student toward achieving the big idea.) Identify at least three objectives that move students toward achieving the big idea. The objectives should be varied and challenging and reflect levels of Depth of Knowledge. Number each objective so you can reference them later in your Assessment Plan and unit Outline. D. TYPE/LEVEL OF OBJECTIVES Using a relevant critical thinking hierarchy, such as: - Depth of Knowledge (recall, skills/concepts, strategic thinking, extended thinking) - Bloom s Taxonomy (knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, evaluation) Label and describe the levels of learning represented in each objective. E. APPROPRIATENESS FOR STUDENTS DEVELOPMENT Explain why each objective is appropriate for students development, pre-requisite knowledge, etc. BIG IDEA: STANDARDS STUDENT OBJECTIVES TYPE/LEVELS OF OBJECTIVES APPROPRIATENESS FOR STUDENTS DEVELOPMENT 1. Expand table as needed. Suggested page Length: 1-2 page BIG IDEA STANDARDS STUDENT OBJECTIVES TYPE/LEVEL OF OBJECTIVES APPROPRIATENESS FOR STUDENTS The big idea is insightful and sets high expectations for what students will know at the end of the unit; aligns with local, state, or national standards. State and national standards are clearly stated with reference numbers. Objectives reinforce learning outcomes (what the students will be able to know, understand, and do) and align with national, state, or local standards. Objectives reflect multiple levels of learning and are significant/challenging. Objectives are consistently appropriate for the development, pre-requisite knowledge, skills, experiences, and other student needs. LEARNING GOALS AND OBJECTIVES OF UNIT The big idea is clearly stated that defines what you expect students to know at the end of the unit; aligns with local, state, or national standards. Some state and national standards are clearly stated with some reference numbers. Objectives support the learning outcomes (what the students will be able to know, understand, and do) and align with national, state or local standards. Objectives reflect several levels of learning and are significant/challenging. Objectives are adequately appropriate for the development, pre-requisite knowledge, skills, experiences, and other student needs. The big idea is stated, but alignment to local, state, or national standards is not clear. State and national standards are stated but not with reference numbers. Some objectives support the learning outcomes (what the students will be able to know, understand, and do) and align with national, state or local standards. Objectives reflect few levels of learning and lack significance/challenge. Some objectives are appropriate for the development, prerequisite knowledge, skills, experiences, and other student needs. Big idea is not stated clearly and/or is not stated; there is no alignment with local, state, or national standards. State and national standards are not clearly stated or not stated at all; reference numbers are not used. Objectives do not support the learning outcomes and do not align with national, state or local standards. Objectives reflect only one level of Objectives are not appropriate for the development, prerequisite knowledge, skills, experiences, or other student needs. SCORE

6 ASSESSMENT PLAN TCWS Standard: The teacher candidate uses multiple assessment methods aligned with the learning goal and objectives to assess student learning before, during and after instruction. WV Professional Teaching Standards: 1, 2, 3 Using the Assessment Plan Chart (below), you must design an assessment plan used to monitor student objectives. Plan appropriate assessment measures for assessing student learning before instruction (pre-assessments), during instruction (interim or formative assessment), and after instruction (post or summative assessments). Assessment methods may include constructed response, selected response (i.e., multiple-choice tests, true or false), essay (essay examinations, take-home essays, etc.), performance assessment (i.e., reading aloud, performance event, performance task, communicating conversationally in a second language, carrying out a specific motor activity in physical education, delivering a speech, etc.), and personal communications (i.e., questions posed and answered during instruction, interviews, conferences, etc.). Your instructional sequence should include a variety of assessment methods and strategies suited for the developmental level of the students and your learning objectives. You must also state and defend the criteria you will use for determining the accomplishment of each learning objective. The key to writing this section of your Teacher Candidate Work Sample is the alignment between your learning objectives and assessment methods and strategies. You must construct a table that lists 3-5 learning objective (see Learning Goals and Objectives section), the assessments used to assess student performance relative to each learning objective, and a rationale for each assessment that explains why you chose or developed the assessment. Read the scoring rubric in advance and use the chart below to provide the following information: STUDENT OBJECTIVE (DO) 1. Pre- Assessment Formative CONTENT SPECIFIC ASSESSMENTS (Methods matched to outcome types and content area) RATIONALE OF ASSESSMENTS Post- Assessment Expand table as needed. Include copies of assessments, the student directions for the assessments, and criteria for scoring student performance (e.g., scoring rubrics, observation checklists, rating scales, answer keys) in Appendix A: Assessments. Suggested Page Length: 2-3 pages (Assessment Plan) + assessment instruments CONTENT SPECIFIC ASSESSMENTS RATIONALE OF ASSESSMENTS The plan is designed with multiple assessments carefully chosen to fit the content and the student skill level in their complexity (e.g., Bloom). Rationale for assessments is clearly thought out to reflect mastery of the content students will learn. LEARNING GOALS AND OBJECTIVES OF UNIT The plan includes multiple assessments with a variety of modes that fit the content and the student skill level in their complexity (e.g., Bloom). Rationale for assessments is somewhat thought out to reflect the content students will learn. The plan includes some assessments with a variety of modes that fit the content and the student skill level in their complexity (e.g., Bloom). Rationale for assessments doesn t align with the content that students will learn. Few to no assessments represent a variety of modes that fit the content and the student skill level in their complexity (e.g., Bloom). Rationale for assessments chosen is not included. SCORE

7 DESIGN FOR INSTRUCTION/TEACHING UNIT INSTRUCTIONAL PLANS TCWS Standard: The teacher candidate designs instruction for the specific learning goal and objectives that address characteristics and needs of students, and the learning context. WV Professional Teaching Standards: 1, 2, 3 Design the lessons for your unit based on the learning goal and objectives, students characteristics and learning context.

Assessments were included for less than half of the instructional strategies/activities listed. Candidate does not provide a plan based on the assessment

9 IMPACT ON STUDENT LEARNING TCWS Standard: The teacher candidate uses assessment data to profile student learning and communicate information about student progress and achievement. WV Professional Teaching Standards: 1, 2, 3 Task Report the results of your assessments, including pre/post assessments and formative assessments to determine students progress related to the learning goal and objectives. Use charts, graphs and narrative to identify the performance of the whole class and two individual students. Read the scoring rubric in advance and organize your Analysis of Student Learning using the following subheadings: A. WHOLE CLASS Create a graph or table that shows every student and his/her performance on pre- and post-assessments on the learning goal and each objective. Summarize what the data show about student learning in the whole class. How many students met the objectives? How many did not? B. TWO INDIVIDUALS Select two students who exhibit divergent performance levels on one learning objective in the unit. Provide a rationale for your selection of these two students. Create a graph or table that shows the performance of the two individuals on pre- and postassessments on one objective. Summarize what these data show about student learning for these individuals. NOTE: You will provide possible reasons for why your students learned (or did not learn) in the next section, Reflection and Self-Evaluation.
