1 Checklist for your School A Block Placement 9 November to 17 December (First Teaching Practice)

2 Preparation Checklist for Block A Preparation checklist to be emailed to me by Friday 2 November Not everything may be ticked but should be by the time I visit you TIMETABLES! I need them by early next week (so 9 th or 10 th November) so I can draw up my visits schedule Information on timetables needs to include your name and school if a fortnightly timetable which is week A or B (1/2 – blue/red)… the times of the lessons, break, lunch, etc. a clear indication of which lesson is solo, support, scaffolded… for each lesson the name (initials will do) of the teacher and the room for each lesson an indication of the ability of the class (e.g. set 2 of 4)

3 Expected Balance of Training/Teaching This is a training course so you need time to train as well as to teach! 10 to 20% focused observation (= 1 hour per day) 20 to 30% support/scaffold teaching (1 or 2 hours per day) 20 to 30% ‘solo’ teaching (1 or 2 hours per day) At least 30% non-contact time (2 hours per day) Bear in mind that a teaching day is 5 hours and that you are entitled to 2 of these hours to prepare/mark 1 hour a week will be with your MFL mentor 1 hour per week will be with your Professional Tutor

4 TP (Teaching Practice) File Content Content sub-divided into: Contextualised Information Teaching Information: Schemes of Work for each class you teach, SEN/Assessment data, class lists, etc. as well as one lesson plan and one self-evaluation per lesson prepared/taught Records/data may well be in another location (e.g. your Marks Book)

5 Frequency of Lesson Observations On average two ‘official’ observation per week (on a LON = Lesson Observation Notes) = 10 or 12 altogether All Observations to be recorded on LONS, even if part- lessons or ‘focused’ Official LONs will include mine when I visit you as well as one from the Professional Tutor and others by the teachers whose class(es) you will have taken over My visits: although ‘pink card system’, I’ll send you my visit schedule via email (to the YahooGroup!) so make sure that you pass the info on to them) QTT Standards are often filled in by you rather than the observer although the laminated versions should not make this task onerous

6 Weekly PRD (Progress Review Diary) The PRD, once you’ve had your 1 hour meeting with your mentor, should be filled in by you once a week (typically on a Friday) and checked/signed by him/her The ‘Issues that cause concern’ section is for your mentor to fill in, not you! Each PRD is numbered (e.g. for w/b 9 th November it will be PRD 1) Key information about this must be emailed to me once a week (e.g. every Friday), using the template supplied (WPR = Weekly Progress Report). This allows me to be aware of what is happening as well as to ensure that all is as it should be.

7 Lesson Plans Lesson Plans, in outline format, must be shown/discussed with mentor/class teacher well in advance of lesson itself Agreed Lesson Plans will be much more effectively done electronically but must also be printed out Note the small differences between the ‘standard’ Lesson Planning Templates and those for MFL Shortcomings in plans often include insufficient information on page 1 (e.g. about differentiation) and unrealistic timing on page 2

8 List of Files Your should have the following files: TP Evidence Portfolio with Indicative Evidence (Recording Evidence Booklet) Evidence File with Evidence for every QTT Standard (second file) Note that In Evidence Portfolio the Needs Analysis section is for principally meant for GTP trainees (so to be generally ignored) ICT Audit is as done by you when interviewed for the PGCE course, with evidence of progress during the course

9 Expectations from Trainees No-one will be asked to withdraw from the course early unless their ‘Professional Values and Practice’ cause concern Punctuality and Attendance (part of ‘Professional Values and Practice’) have been an issue for some at College: Caveat Emptor! Beware of the bad impression given by staffroom idleness and ‘fiddling’ on the school computers (e.g. on the www) Tutorials: Tutorial 2 in December/January to discuss Summative Report and Assignment 2 focus Tutorial 3 in April during Block Placement B visit 1 Tutorial 4 at end of course (June) to discuss Block B Summative Report do CEDP (Career Entry & Development Profile)
