Welcome! Towson Science Placement Mentor Teacher Workshop August 18, 2005

Slide 2

Schedule New educators Overview of Elementary Education Program and Science Education Goals for this Course/Role of Mentor Teacher Returning educators participate in Giving Feedback to Interns Discussion Inquiry Discussion: Looking at Video, Curriculum More exchange time: Communicating about lesson arranges; Assessment; Community; Recruitment School Group Meetings with Towson Instructor Wrap-up and Paperwork

SCIE 376 Learning hypothesis and showing strategies (changes from segment to area) Active learning/constructivism Students ought to take part in logical procedure to learn science (request strategy) 5E action group (Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend, Evaluate) Teacher as audience, facilitator, examiner, thought clarifier Local, state, and/or national norms on science substance and procedure INTASC gauges for surveying new instructors Gardner\'s various insight hypothesis Learning styles Methods of evaluation Wait time

Slide 9

Goals for the Placement Course Understanding and use of science-particular learning hypothesis Children\'s reasoning, thoughts, and investigative exchange Science as a procedure of request Good science educating: Inquiry-construct guideline Having understudies reflect in light of exploratory information and their regular encounters keeping in mind the end goal to make experimental inferences Learning cycle/5E lesson structure Role of the educator: audience, facilitator, clarifier, ... Presentation to science benchmarks: Local, state, and/or national

Slide 10

Goals for the Placement Course Practice tuning in, inspiring, and reacting to kids\' logical thinking, knowledge, and thoughts As identified with particular substance units and as a rule Self-reflection and change Trying diverse things in showing Obtaining criticism from tutor educator and 376 teacher Reflecting on input Modification of instructing amid resulting showing sessions

Slide 11

Goals for the Placement Course Science educating (9+ times for every understudy)  Infrequently: Implementing exercises precisely as composed (just if exercises are now great request based exercises)  Typically: Evaluation and alteration of science exercises  Occasionally: Creating science exercises without any preparation  Student appraisal  Beginning to execute classroom administration procedures

Slide 12

Things that are not objectives This course shouldn\'t give the assistants full understudy instructing like encounters, including school perception conventions, entire class classroom administration, and so forth. We likewise don\'t anticipate that understudies will build up all exercises sans preparation for the entire semester.

Slide 13

Sample timetable 1-2 weeks 2-3 weeks 6-8 weeks Introductory Interns do exercises Interns are altering activities they are given, with activities and towards the some flexibility to end might be given points modify, yet no man- only, with time ahead of time date to completely to make lesson arrangements overhaul. More help Less help (yet at the same time help.) Teaching/Planning Class Management

Slide 14

One way a Towson educator may structure a course to meet the objectives 12:30-1 Methods exchange. 1-1:30 Lesson planning time 1:30-2:30 Classroom time - 5-6 assistants for each class. 1:30-2 Start with two understudies starting the lesson with the full class. 2-2:30 Break class into little gatherings and every understudy proceeds the lesson with their gathering. 2:30-3:15 Reflection time (how lesson went, what youngsters\' thoughts were, and so forth.) 3:15-3:40 Planning for future lessons. 3:40-4:10 After-school classroom instructor drilling time.

Slide 15

Role of the Mentor Teacher Communicate with Towson educator and, when proper, with Beth and Laura. (Offer thoughts or make inquiries.) Keep assistants a la mode on which lessons they will instruct in your class. Give input to assistants with respect to their lessons. (Email, verbal, and/or composed) Assist the assistants with classroom administration .

Slide 16

Giving Feedback to Interns After class criticism. Reason - criticism does not add to the understudy\'s evaluation. (Essex, check with Sarah.) For them to use to enhance educating. Sort of criticism - substantive, with both qualities and ranges needing change, with proposals at whatever point conceivable. How is it running with the structure and/or different sorts of criticism?

Slide 17

Giving Feedback to Interns During class input/direction. Understudies need space to attempt distinctive things and commit errors. It would be ideal if you venture in the event that you see assistants accomplishing something physically risky or mean/candidly harming to the youngsters. (Furthermore, please help with administration, particularly toward the starting.) If you see pedagogical issues, either hold up and give assistants criticism later, or pull people aside later. Kindly don\'t venture in and assume control.

Slide 18

Inquiry Goals of the course incorporate showing science as request . National Science Education Standards (NSES), which emphatically impact most school regions\' science programs, lay out essential changes of accentuation .

Slide 19

Inquiry Video discourse.

Slide 20

Inquiry Curriculum Discussion First look through the lessons and contemplate internally what you think about the lessons for the most part and regarding whether you would call them science request. Next, experience the lessons with your gathering, and see where you would put every lesson in the less versus more accentuation classes from the norms.

Slide 21

Reporting to our funders. Award that pays for Beth, this workshop and stipends, and so on. Oblige us to gather and report information. Short letter to guardians clarifies this - we may require your bail sending them out. How best? School system?

Slide 22

Discussion questions Assessment - Formative and Summative What do you require from Towson understudies? In the event that a unit appraisal is required, does it need to be County assessment or might it be able to be something else that is adjusted to VSC? What are courses of events we have to hold fast to? Group Building - Healthy, productive, stable connections. Other than this workshop, the cash, and better coordination, how may we better form a group of position schools?

Slide 23

Discussion questions Communicating about lesson arranges One workable model is to have the educator in charge of all lesson criticism, and to send drafts of the arrangement to the teachers before class so they have some thought of lesson in front of time. Remarks? Appears to be alright? Selecting coach instructors We\'d like to make a letter to planned educators. What concerns ought to be tended to and how?
