3 LETTER ABOUT TEACHING BLOCK Dear Mentor Teacher, Thank you for agreeing to serve as a University of Central Oklahoma student teacher mentor! We hope you find this semester especially fulfilling as you provide your wise counsel and expertise to an up-and-coming member of the profession. The student teacher, working as your co-teacher, should authentically experience the complex and demanding work of teaching - analyzing students needs, designing and implementing instruction, using assessment feedback, building relationships with colleagues and students parents, and the list goes on. Your student teacher is excited and ready to observe your educational approaches and to develop strategies for impacting student learning. During the first few weeks we hope you will help integrate your student teacher into the school. Specifically, we ask that you introduce your student teacher to faculty and administration, provide a tour of the building and of available resources, make school and classroom policies and procedures clear, share your thinking behind your instructional methods, and serve as a sounding board. While the student teacher is responsible for upholding your standards of practice, he or she will gradually need to become the leader of instructional activities. You may best encourage the professional development of your student teacher through honest, careful and descriptive feedback - delivered professionally, of course. During the first week, in particular, your student teacher will be concurrently completing a course focused on classroom management and instructional strategies on UCO s campus. This week serves as a transition block so that student teachers can begin settling into their clinical experience during the mornings while being provided University support during the afternoons. The transition is designed to ensure the school placement is appropriate, that program completion requirements are understood and that instructional strategies are in place for successful student teaching. Additionally, per this course student teachers will be provided ongoing, online University support and some assignments throughout the clinical experience. As a general rule, by the end of the first week, your student teacher should be well-acclimated to the school and should be prepared to lead small portions of lessons or to oversee particular instructional tasks. From this time forward your student teacher should incrementally increase responsibility for planning and delivering instruction and should advance their skills using formative and summative assessment data to drive decision making. In this process, he or she will eventually assume the full responsibilities of teaching in your classroom (or serving as the lead teacher while co-teaching with you) for at least two weeks. I realize that quality mentorship requires much time and effort on your part. The University of Central Oklahoma awards tuition waivers for mentor teachers who are assigned a student teacher and who fulfill mentorship responsibilities. These vouchers will be given to the mentor teacher at the end of the semester. The voucher may be used to attend UCO classes beginning the semester following mentorship. The vouchers may be transferred to another teacher or staff 3

4 member (such as a teaching assistant) in the building by following the instructions on the back and obtaining the principal s signature. Unfortunately, vouchers cannot be used by family members or other dependents. Vouchers are valid for a period of 18 months. This is one way that we show our appreciation to you for your willingness to work with our future teachers. Please know that the clinical experience mentored by you is a vital part of our teacher preparation program. Strong partnerships between PK-12 schools and the University are critical to inducting the next generation of teachers into the profession. If you have concerns this semester, please do not hesitate to contact the University Supervisor assigned to your student teacher and/or UCO s Teacher Education Services office, Respectfully, Bryan Duke, Ph.D., Assistant Dean Director of Teacher Education College of Education and Professional Studies University of Central Oklahoma 100 N. University Drive Edmond, Oklahoma, (405)

5 LETTER ABOUT TRANSITION BLOCK Fall 2013 Dear Mentor Teacher, We sincerely appreciate your willingness to accept a student teacher to begin working under your guidance. Your role of mentor teacher is very important since this will be one of the most significant opportunities for the student teacher to develop effective teaching and management practices. You will be a model for the candidate; consequently, the student teacher will look to you for assistance in how to apply the knowledge and skills he/she has gained up to this point. The student teaching semester consists of a transition period prior to the full-day teaching experience. We have a NEW format for the Transition Block based on feedback from the mentor teachers. This semester the Transition Block, will be ONE WEEK beginning August in the afternoons. During the week, student teaching is scheduled during the morning hours (minimum 3 hours) and the students will attend Classroom Management and Instruction in the afternoon. This may be a new time frame for those of you who have served as a mentor to a student teacher in the past. Student teachers are expected to arrive at the school site at the same time the mentor teacher is required to arrive, yet during this week, they will need to leave the school site by 11:30 a.m to return to UCO for class Monday through Friday. The exact time frame in which the student will leave their school during the morning is based on an individual school s schedule. In addition, the student teachers will be required to return to UCO two dates: September 20 and November 1st for a full day (8 a.m. to 4 p.m.) to complete our Touchback Days. As part of the new format we will have online activities for the student teachers to complete during the weeks of student teaching. The course schedule is set up to meet the 3 hour course time requirement mandated by the Oklahoma State Regents. During the Transition Block student teachers will attend the Classroom Management and Instruction course at UCO in the afternoon. Classroom Management and Instruction (PTE 4853) focuses on developing a deeper understanding of classroom management, learning environments, instructional strategies, diversity, parent communication and the teacher evaluation tools. This class supports your efforts in their acclimation into your classroom and school and helps them make contextually-appropriate applications of key research-based practices. Course requirements during this block will require student teachers to complete observations and interviews related to your approach to classroom management and instruction in order to analyze and describe how knowledge and theory are integrated into practice. In addition, student teachers are required to complete two artifacts for their professional portfolios during this course. We encourage our student teachers to visit other classrooms that will help strengthen his/her understanding of teaching and to begin assisting you with classroom responsibilities. Student teaching during the Transition Block is meant to be a time to develop a relationship with the mentor teacher and students, to understand the dynamics of the classroom, and to support the learning environment. Please assist the student teacher in maintaining focus by limiting the classroom responsibilities and involvements to managerial support and tutorial efforts during this week. Once the Transition Block is complete and student teachers are no longer attending class at UCO in the afternoons, then they will be ready to develop lesson plans and move toward full-time teaching responsibilities. 5

6 We are excited about your collaboration with UCO and look forward to working with you to help prepare future teachers. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the Transition Block. Sincerely, Dr. Susan C.

14 Portfolio Artifact: Unit of Study/Teacher Work Sample Overview During the student teaching experience, teacher candidates will have the opportunity to demonstrate their content knowledge, teaching skills, and professional dispositions by developing a teaching unit that builds on the strengths, needs, and prior experiences of their students. Through this performance assessment, student teachers will document their ability to respond to the classroom contexts of instruction; will diagnose and interpret students learning needs; will exhibit resourcefulness to plan, implement, and evaluate instruction; will assess student learning; and will reflect for professional growth. Unit of Study Assignment The unit of study contains several components identified by research and best practice as fundamental to improving student learning. Each component includes a task, a prompt (directions) and a rubric that defines various levels of performance on the component. The components and rubrics will be used to evaluate your unit of study. The prompts guide you in documenting the components and your performance as you construct and implement a teaching unit during your student teaching experience. As part of the student teaching experience, you are required to design and teach a comprehensive unit. (NOTE: Full block students should plan a two-week unit and then use a structured lesson plan to present instruction. Student teachers in split block placements must design a unit in the first block; then plan structured lessons and present these as directed by the mentor teacher and supervisor in the second block. Planning Phase: Before you teach the unit, you will describe the contextual factors, identify learning goals based on state and/or district standards, create an assessment plan to measure student performance before, during, and after instruction, and plan for the instruction. This section should be reviewed and approved by your mentor and university supervisor prior to delivery of the unit. Delivery and Reflection Phase: Throughout the delivery of the unit, review and reflect on each day s events and make notes. Record personal insights, student interactions, teaching adjustments, and challenging moments as you experience them. After you teach the unit, you will analyze student learning and then reflect upon and evaluate your teaching as related to student learning using these notes as a source of information. 14

The purpose of this overview is to depict the alignment between learning goals and assessments and to show adaptations to meet the individual needs of students or contextual factors. You may use a visual organizer such as a table, outline or other means to make your plan clear. Clarity of criteria / Modes of assessment / Technical soundness. Clearly explain how you will evaluate or score assessments, including criteria you will 23

24 use to determine if the students performance meets the learning goals. In an appendix, attach copies of assessments, prompts, and/or student directions and criteria for judging student performance (e.g., scoring rubrics, observation checklist, rating scales, item weights, test blueprint, answer key). Plan for formative assessment. Describe the assessments you plan to use to check on student progress and comment on the importance of collecting that particular evidence. Although formative assessment may change as you are teaching the unit, your task is to predict at what points in your teaching it will be important to assess students progress toward learning goals. Example of Assessment Plan Table: Kindergarten Learning Goal Assessment Format of Assessment Adaptations 1. The student will link wild animals with their habitats Pre-Assessment Checklist: Game w/animal masks & centers representing habitats (tree, lake, burrow, cave) Repeat and modify instructions as needed. Demonstrate and assist with cutting, gluing, etc. Provide model of mask and model how to move to habitat centers. Keep activities high-interest and brief. Formative Assessment Animal puppets & habitat (e.g. bird & nest) Anecdotal records of Q & A Picture journals Provide concrete models and assistance w/fine motor tasks as needed. Provide multiple explanations and model performances. Provide verbal cues and allow plenty of wait time for Q & A Post-Assessment Checklist: Game w/animal masks & centers representing habitats 2. The student will explain the difference between a farm animal and wild animal. Pre-Assessment Flannel board activity sorting animals Demonstrate and provide an example of the sort. Use parent helper to keep record of number correct. 24

25 Example of Assessment Plan Table: High School History Learning Goal Assessment Format of Assessment Adaptations 1. The student will identify the three roles of Congress Pre-Assessment Multiple choice pre-test Assist special needs students with directions, etc. Allow ESL students to use dictionaries, etc. Formative Assessment Newspaper search to identify impact of Congress on everyday life. Provide sample articles for special needs students. Allow ESL student to use native language newspaper if available. Provide multiple explanations as needed. Formative Assessment Post-Assessment Visit Senate and House of Representative websites for electronic scavenger hunt. Multiple choice and short essay post-test. Assist students with low technology skills if needed. 2. Distinguish between and identify examples of implied and expressed powers Pre-Assessment Multiple choice pre-test Assist special needs students with directions, etc. Allow ESL students to use dictionaries, etc. 25

26 Name: Assessment Plan Rubric Task: Design an assessment plan to monitor student progress toward learning goal(s). Use multiple assessment modes and approaches aligned with learning goals to assess student learning throughout instruction. These assessments should authentically measure student learning and may include performance-based tasks, paper-and-pencil tasks, or other means such as observations, personal interactions, etc. Describe why your assessments are appropriate for measuring learning. First Submission Revised Submission Indicator 1.Unacceptable 2.Basic 3.Developing 4.Proficient 5.Outstanding Alignment with Learning Goals and Instruction Content and methods of assessment lack congruence with learning goals or lack cognitive complexity Some of the learning goals are assessed through the assessment plan, but many are not congruent with learning goals in content or cognitive complexity Most learning goals are assessed through the assessment plan; assessments are nearly congruent with learning goals in content but may lack cognitive complexity. Each of the learning goals is assessed through the assessment plan; assessments are congruent with the learning goals in content and complexity. Each of the learning goals is assessed through the assessment plan that clearly details the content and cognitive complexity. Assessment matches the conditions in the goal/objectives. Clarity of Criteria and Standards for Performance Assessments contain no clear criteria for measuring student performance relative to learning goals. Assessment criteria are not fully developed for each goal. Assessment is overly easy Assessment criteria have been developed, but they are not clear and do not detail student performances. Assessment is not uniformly challenging. Assessment criteria are clear and explicitly linked to learning goals. Assessment is appropriately challenging. Assessment criteria illustrate strong knowledge of assessment principles and clearly delineate student performance levels. Multiple Modes and Approaches Assessment plan includes only one assessment mode and uses only post-instruction assessment. Assessment plan includes only one assessment mode and does not assess students before, during and after instruction. Assessment plan includes multiple modes but all are pencil/paper based and do not require the integration of knowledge, skills, and reasoning ability. Assessment is irregular throughout the instructional sequence. Assessment plan includes multiple assessment modes requiring integration of knowledge, skills & reasoning. Plan assesses student performance throughout the instructional sequence. Assessment plan includes appropriate and creative assessments that measure student performance in ways that emphasizes assessment as learning throughout the instructional sequence. Technical Soundness Assessments are not valid; scoring procedures are absent or inaccurate; items or prompts are poorly written; directions and procedures are missing. Assessments appear to have some validity. Scoring procedures are unclear; directions and procedures are confusing to students. Assessments appear to have some validity. Some scoring procedures are explained; some items or prompts are clearly written; some directions and procedures are clear to students. Assessments appear to be valid; scoring procedures are explained; most items or prompts are clearly written; directions and procedures are clear to students. Assessments appear to be valid and unbiased; scoring procedures are explained. Items and prompts are well written; directions and procedures are clear. Adaptations Based on the Individual Needs of Students No adaptations for assessments are planned. Adaptations are state, but are inappropriate to meet individual student needs. Teacher makes adaptations to assessments that are appropriate to meet the individual needs of some students. Teacher makes adaptations to assessments that are appropriate to meet the individual needs of most students. Teacher makes adaptations to assessments that meet the needs of all students. 26
