Get a Binder Your supervisor will be so happy if you keep all of your work for the course in a clearly marked binder that the supervisor can find and check at every visit. When the supervisor arrives they will read your analysis of student work, your reflections and your plans for the current lesson as well as your weekly plans. The resident teacher can also use the binder to include his or her observations or comments.
Class, School and Community Report Directions for this are in the Single Subject Handbook Find the Handbook on the Single Subject webpage http://coe.csusb.edu/programs/singleSubjectCred/index.htm The purpose is to help you and your supervisor understand the context of your teaching. It will also help you understand the students you are teaching as individuals and includes similar information to that required by the TPA. This should be one of your first written assignments in each quarter of student teaching. Questions?
Long Term Plans You will start by observing and participating in the classroom – helping individual students, working with small groups, handling routine parts of the day like the beginning or end. You will develop a plan for the quarter with your resident teacher to identify when you will take responsibility for each content area. This should include the requirements for your TPA. The goal is that for two weeks you will teach all the content areas including planning, instruction and assessment. Questions?
Lesson Plans Unit plans – may be needed for science or social studies methods classes Weekly plans – include plans for all the lessons you teach each week Lesson plans – choose a format that your resident teacher and supervisor agree on.
