Allocate at least 2 hours in the field to support this field experience.
Observe a lesson in a K-3 classroom. After your observation, collaborate with your mentor teacher to discuss the assessment cycle. Keep your data from your clinical field experiences, as it will be used in the benchmark assignment in Topic 5.
Ask your mentor to identify a student who would benefit from targeted teaching. Targeted teaching provides an opportunity to intervene and support the learning of one student more closely.
Discuss with your mentor teacher how anecdotal data for creating targeted teaching strategies (intervention activities) for students have been collected and organized. Important information to consider might include strategies the teacher has used in the past, students’ responses to the teacher’s selected strategies, level of students’ engagement, and things that motivate the students. This information will help you develop appropriate strategies to enhance the learning of identified students.
Use any remaining field experience hours to assist the mentor teacher in providing instruction and support to the class.
For this assignment, write a 250-500 word narrative explaining how the teacher uses data-informed decision-making and data organization systems to create lessons.
