• Early Experience/Senior Block Reflections
During Early Experience and the Senior Block (TBD), submit reflections on your field experience; these should be submitted to your secondary methods and content methods professors. [A schedule will be provided.]
• Self-assessment/Video-taped Lessons
Candidates must video-tape 2 lessons during senior block—one early in the block and one late in the block. Candidates should then write a self-assessment that compares the two lessons.
• Text Reading/Reaction Logs
Read the assigned text(s) and maintain a reading log throughout your readings. I highly recommend that you include in the log any notes on how the text reading offers practical information you can apply in the classroom; also, I recommend that you maintain a double-entry format—with your reading notes on the left of each page and a blank space to the right so you can jot relevant reactions and experiences during your field experience over the senior block placement.
• Unit Work Sample (UWS)
Using the UWS template and guidelines (see blog or Education Department web site), conduct and then submit a Unit Work Sample. Time will be allocated during the methods courses (spring) to plan the UWS. The UWS must be implemented during your spring placement. Appendix 2 provides a rubric for the UWS.
