Students will videotape a full lesson in the non-final field experience classroom and complete an analysis of their performance based on Best Practice teaching methods. This task will serve as the Critical Task assignment for the Block 4/Level I Student Teaching Experience.
As part of the course requirements the student teacher will be videoed presenting a lesson to the class. Below are the Video Permission Letters (English/Spanish versions) to be distributed to parents, if needed.
The videotape project will focus on assessing the student’s content presentation and teaching performance. This project includes a videotape of 30 minutes or one full lesson, a written evaluation/reflection of the video lesson and a copy of the lesson plan. The written evaluation/reflection must be completed on a computer, double-spaced and should be 2 – 3 pages in length. The self evaluation/reflection component will be entered on Live Text. A copy of the evaluation/reflection must accompany the video and lesson plan when submitted to the university supervisor. The written evaluation/reflection should include these components:
All components must be submitted to your university supervisor to receive a satisfactory grade.
Due Date: The video lesson is due to the University Supervisor after the middle of the semester. The exact date will be determined by your Supervisor.
Criteria for assessment: There is a Video Scoring Rubric. Satisfactory assessment is necessary for a satisfactory final grade.
