Clinical Field Experience A & B

YoutubeTeacherTubeTeaching Channel, ASCDEdutopiaThe Teacher’s NetworkProgress Center (SPED) and PBS are all great online resources that post many videos that could be watched in lieu of time in the physical placement. If you watch supplemental videos in lieu of time in the physical placement or collaborating with a mentor, please document the time watched for each video and include a brief summary of 1-2 take-aways noted for each video on your Clinical Field Experience Verification Form.

Part 1: Observation

Observing a classroom environment can provide much needed detail and understanding of students’ learning needs and continued progress.

Observe a K-8 classroom during a science lesson. If possible, observe a lesson that integrates health, PE, or nutrition. During your observation of the lesson, complete the “Clinical Field Experience A: Science Observation” form.

With the help of your mentor teacher, identify 3-5 students above, at, or below standard achievement in the classroom environment that would benefit from additional learning support. Ask your mentor teacher for the unit and standards the class is currently learning, in order to develop the pre-assessment for Clinical Field Experience B and inquire about implementing a science pre-assessment during Clinical Field Experience B.

Speak with your mentor teacher and, provided permission, use any remaining time to seek out opportunities to observe and/or assist your mentor teacher or another teacher and work with a small group of students on instruction in the classroom. Your mentor teacher must approve any hours spent observing another classroom environment.

Part 2: Reflection

Maintain your documentation to develop an instructional approach with students. As a follow up to your observation, reflect on your observation experience.

Following your observation, discuss the science lesson with your mentor teacher. In 250-500 words, summarize your observation and discussion with your mentor teacher, and describe how you will apply what you have learned to your future professional practice.

Your discussion should answer the following questions:

  • How do you engage students in learning opportunities specific to science?
  • How do the science lessons promote critical thinking and problem solving skills?
  • How did the students respond and engage during instruction and independent work?
  • How do you modify or adjust instruction based on response from students?
  • How do you prepare to teach instruction in the content area (vocabulary, knowledge of material, content standards, resources)?

Submit the “Clinical Field Experience A: Science Observation” form and reflection as one deliverable.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. Refer to the LopesWrite Technical Support articles for assistance.

Document the locations and hours you spend in the field on your Clinical Field Experience Verification Form.

Submit the Clinical Field Experience Verification Form to LoudCloud in the last topic. Directions for submitting can be found on the College of Education site in the Student Success Center.

This is Clinical Field Experience part B

Allocate at least 3 hours in the field to support this field experience.

Part 1: Pre-Assessment Development

From your previous observation in your field experience classroom, you identified 3-5 students, above, at, or below standard achievement in the classroom environment that would benefit from additional learning support. You also identified the standards and unit that your mentor class is currently learning.

With this information, complete the “Clinical Field Experience B: Science Pre-Assessment” to develop a pre-assessment in the science and health content area that aligns to the standards and unit that your mentor teacher shared with you during Clinical Field Experience A. The pre-assessment can be oral, written, or completed through technology. The pre-assessment should identify how well selected students know the concept and provide data that would allow you to determine learning gaps and needs in order to develop an appropriate lesson to support learning needs.

Share the pre-assessment with your mentor teacher and ask for his or her feedback.

Implement the pre-assessment that you created with the selected group of students and use the data to prepare for Clinical Field Experience C.

Use any remaining field experience hours to speak with your mentor teacher and, provided permission, seek out opportunities to observe and/or assist your mentor teacher and/or work with a small group of students on instruction in the classroom.

Part 3: Reflection

In 250-500 words, summarize and reflect on your field experience and the steps you took to identify students for the pre-assessment. For your reflection, address the following:

  1. Did the pre-assessment provide data to determine the learning gaps and needs of students? Explain.
  2. Describe the ethical use of assessments and assessment data.
  3. What challenges did you face when developing and delivering the pre-assessment?
  4. Explain how you will use your findings in your future professional practice.

Submit “Clinical Field Experience B: Science Pre-Assessment” and reflection and as one deliverable.
