10 Four sections: 1. The candidate information 2. The writing and evidence guidelines  12 pages of narrative supporting the five criteria  10 pieces for supporting evidence 10

11 3. The prompts for the written narrative -Reference Ohio’s teaching and Professional Development standards -In line with OTES 4. Summary of the scoring process - Exemplary in four of the five areas. 11

12  Two forms submitted with each application  Recommendations from colleagues and/or supervisors familiar with your professional practice 12

13  Evidence is one piece of work or document that supports the written narrative (artifacts)  A key component of this process will be making choices about what to feature in your written narratives 13

14  Clear  Concise  Convincing 14

15  Descriptive  Analytical  Reflective 15

16  Provide a retelling of the experiences that demonstrate distinguished teaching according to the criteria.  Describing what happened in a classroom or professional situation. 16

17  Examine and interpret why the experiences described are the way they are. This type of writing explores reasons and motives.  Analyzing the ‘how’, ‘why’ or ‘in what way’ a particular lesson was or was not successful in teaching students or how your professional experience impacts student learning and your teaching practice. 17

18  Evidence that the teacher is thinking critically about his or her own practice, in relation to individual students and overall.  Reflecting on how you would handle this same situation in the future, what impact it had on student learning, and how you would adjust your teaching practice in the future. 18

19  Standards-based rubric  Minimum two people score each candidate’s submission  Consider responses within the context of your district  Blind Scoring process 19

20  Limited to 12 pages  Has to be within the last 5 years  Refer to the “Ohio Standards for the Teaching Profession”  What do you want to highlight?  What evidence can you include? 20

21 One of the more enjoyable aspects of my job is the time I am able to collaborate with my other grade level teacher. We meet almost daily to plan for the upcoming lessons and to reflect on lessons we have taught. My partner and I work very well together and both benefit from each other’s knowledge and experiences. We have been teaching together for the past fifteen years and have similar styles and discipline expectations. I work with my administrator to make sure I am meeting the building level goals. I feel I have a collegial relationship with the other teachers in the building and we work together when the opportunity presents itself. 21

24 This sample would receive a 1 point because it just talks about collaboration with other teachers and or administrators/staff. It does not speak to how the collaboration promotes student achievement. The teacher indicates they meet almost daily to plan upcoming lessons. The teacher works with her administrator and has a collegial relationship with other staff members. 24

25 As a middle school science teacher it is important that I am aware of how my students are achieving towards the learning goals. I use our district curriculum guide as a planning tool for instruction. My end of the unit assessments are used to gauge if students are ready to advance to the next topic/unit. If I need to re-teach a portion of the unit, based on the assessment tool, I try to find some enrichment activities for students who demonstrated their success so all students have something to work on. During specific units that are long or contain a great deal of content I provide weekly assessments for the students so I can see how they are progressing. We have just completed our unit on Characteristics and Structure of Life and attached as evidence is a copy of a student’s assessment who met all of the learning goals. (Evidence 7) As most of my class was successful with this assessment we will be moving on to our next unit of Heredity. 25

26 This sample would receive a 1 point because the teacher uses some diagnostic, formative and summative assessments and the teacher uses data t monitor student progress and learning, and to plan instruction. The teacher uses the curriculum guide to determine learning. The teacher uses end unit assessments. The teacher uses statements such as some and most as qualifiers to their statements. 26
