If already completed, share your “Instructional Strategies Chart” that you created during Topic 3 and ask for feedback from your mentor teacher.

Part 1: Teacher Collaboration

Below is a list of questions to address during collaboration with your mentor teacher: 

  • What assessments do you use in the classroom and what are their purposes?
  • Do you use data from assessments to plan lessons? How do you organize and analyze assessment data?
  • What steps do you take in creating and implementing assessments? What are some tips you have for a new teacher learning how to create, implement, and analyze assessments?
  • When you were a new teacher, how much time did you allocate to lesson planning? Typically, how long did it take to write a lesson plan?
  • What resources do you use to supplement your instruction and/or help you plan for student-centered instruction?
  • What advice can you give me in terms of creating engaging lesson plans that involve students in the learning process?

Ask three additional questions of your own.

Use any remaining field experience time 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.

Instructional Strategies 

Various forms of instructional strategies can be implemented in the classroom to inform instruction and create student engagement in the classroom.

Instructional strategies must include:

  • Anticipatory Set: How you will set the stage for the learning activity and create student engagement.
  • Teacher-Centered Approach: Direct Instruction (Modeling).
  • Student-Centered Approach: Inquiry-Based Learning (Guided/Whole group practice).
  • Student-Centered Approach: Cooperative Learning (Independent/Individual learning).
