Spring 2014

Practicum Students : SEE THE GOLD LINKS BELOW to request and confirm a visit!

Students may wish to document with pictures their excellence in student teaching:
This is NOT a requirement but great practice for the edTPA

Practicum students are taking the edTPA.
When doing your edTPA video what better way to ensure that you mention everything is to introduce your lesson from a chart. The char is also a good thing should a supervisor walk into a lesson. The supoervisor will know all that is going on!

At meeting 2 I welcome Charts of Lessons
In your Practicum I ask that a chart or Blackboard is present. Please use your edTPA to add categories.

Objective: Convey to the scorer that you are an EXCELLENT Teacher!

If you have an e-portfolio you may wish to put your lesson on the site. Then offer extensions to your lesson.

E-portfolios are part of the Touro Ed. Special Ed. Masters. Introduced in EdSE 650 students learn to create a single E-portfolio for their Masters.
As students move through courses they can add pages of "topics learned" in each course. You will be the Web Master of your own website.
Try demonstrating your content knowledge and communicative skills by assuming the roll of  teaching the topic to others in the class.
In this class you will have the opportunity of learning animated screen capture (Jing) Online Flip Books (Youblisher) Video (youtube, teachertube) and more.
ALWAYS present yourself as a PROFESSIONAL - images and videos of yourself on your own web site are optional.
This course is about content and includes new and exciting ways to demonstrate your knowledge and skill.
all sites should be compliant with NYC Internet Acceptable Use Policy (IAUP)
Field Experience and Practicum Students should look below for the Gold Links
