Instructional Planning: Expectations & Requirements Long Form Lesson Planner Requirements: 4 of the 8 lesson planners with reflections must be created the FIRST time the candidate teaches a lesson in a new content area: »ONE lesson planner for the first Math, Reading, Language Arts/Writing, Science and Social Studies lesson –Plans created for Supervisor observtion visits may count as 3 of the 8 lesson planners as you are required to have a long form lesson plan in advance for each visit (content area will vary). –The remaining lessons can be in any content area and take place anytime throughout the quarter. –Candidates are required to submit 1 Lesson Plan with Reflection per week beginning the week of January 17th, for a total of 8 online submissions by Friday, March 18th (see syllabus for due dates). –Submit into eee drop boxes that are labeled Lesson 1, Lesson 2, etc.
Long Term Planner Complete Long Term Planner with MT Due Sunday, January 16 th to drop box, put copy in Binder, give one to MT, send one to Supervisor Note lesson plan 1,2,3…, Supervisor visits, meetings, assignment due dates Start teaching MATH first - try to begin teaching lessons next week Pairs: You each need to turn in your own long term planner as they may differ More samples online
Planning Expectations Short Form Lesson Plans –Not quite as detailed but still should include: standard, objective, assessment, academic language, shortened sequence (intro, accessing prior knowledge, student engagement, questions, body, closure…) –Samples are posted on eee website –Can create your own format/template (with MT approval) –Must write a thoughtful lesson plan for every whole class lesson –MT will review in advance –Supervisor/Coordinator will ask to see these when visiting as evidence of planning and teaching –Short forms will not be submitted online but should be kept in planning section of binder
Planning Expectations Continued Weekly Plan Book –Format of your choice (in conjunction with MT) –Keep in planning section of binder –Include standard, objective, assessment, bullets within the “box” Lesson Plan Availability MT Guidelines
Student Teaching Binder Similar to a portfolio – we will create a professional portfolio in spring to help prepare you for a job Binder will keep you organized! Work in progress but should always be up to date Supervisors will check for completeness during each visit *Peer Observation & *Evaluations by Students – optional for winter, will be required in spring
Supervisor Observation Visits & Reports –Supervisor will schedule 3 visits during winter quarter using the bell schedule on your Placement Record & by communicating with you –Supervisors will input Observation Schedule and it will be listed on Placement Record –Supervisors must input schedule in order for a report to be activated –Headings above boxes on online report: “candidate narrative,” “candidate commentary” and “advisor comments” –Follow directions on salmon/coral sheet for how to complete the online observation report –Proactively communicate with your Supervisor and MT when scheduling visits and complete reports in a timely manner
Post-Observation Protocol Should look familiar (LTLFT lesson analysis framework and lesson reflection questions) Focus on student learning, evidence, and next steps Rubrics 4 & 5 from Teaching Event Although rubrics are created for math, can use for any content area
Coordinator Observation Visits Coordinator will visit you at least once during your student teaching -- winter or spring Visits will be scheduled in advance via email -- Please respond to requests within 24 hours Lesson plan and binder need to be available for review You will receive written feedback via email
During an observation visit… The Candidate must be prepared to provide: A Lesson Planner in advance Lesson Plan Book w/ weekly plans and short forms Student Teaching Binder An opportunity to conference with Candidate and/or MT
Teacher Candidate Assessment Form (TCAF) Evaluations are submitted online by MT Please remind MT about dates & deadlines Directions for Reflections in syllabus Print out copies for yourself, MT and Binder We will discuss the TCAF more during seminar
Assumption of Instruction Candidates will assume instructional responsibility gradually over the course of the student teaching assignment (see long term planner) The minimum requirement is 2 weeks of 100% instructional responsibilities in the second half of student teaching. We believe in the co-teaching model--You are on a Learning to Teach continuum
And Remember… It’s okay to make missteakes Looking for reflection and growth Take notes, photos, gather resources, ask questions, see & do as much as you can “The ability to concentrate and to use your time well is everything if you want to succeed in business-- or almost anywhere else for that matter.” –Lee Iacocca

Assumption of Instruction Candidates will assume instructional responsibility gradually over the course of the student teaching assignment (see sample long term planner) The minimum requirement is 2 weeks of 100% instructional responsibilities in the second half of student teaching.

Planning Instructional Planning Requirements –Long Term Planner – students will sit with you to complete this, along with GOALS and NORMS –UCI Lesson Planner & short forms –Plan Book Please ask to review lesson plans in advance Examples of Expectations Providing feedback to engage students in reflection
Goals Decide on 5 goals that ST needs to accomplish Align with the standards listed on the Teacher Candidate Assessment Form and reference a Domain and TPE Bullet the goal and include a short description of how you are going to achieve the goal.
Examples of Goals Establish and maintain standards for student behavior (TPE 11, Domain E) –I will establish and maintain standards for student behavior by clearly stating expectations, implementing a whole class reward system, positively reinforcing behavior, following through with consequences, utilizing attention-getting strategies, and projecting my voice. Collect and use multiple sources of information to assess student learning (TPE 2, Domain B) –During lessons I will ask questions that allow for oral responses from all or most students, implement exit cards, collect written work, do formative progress checks throughout the lesson such as pair shares, and create my own summative assessments that are aligned with the learning objectives.
Performance Assessment for California Teachers (PACT) Teaching Event PACT Coordinator is Jeanne Stone and she can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org@uci.edu Overview of Teaching Event Candidates have handbooks and rubrics Timeline (on back of pink Long Term Planner) – January : Instructional Context; Lesson Planning for learning segment – February : Instruction with video & Assessment – End of February : Reflection & Commentary –Due March 2 nd
