TPE of the Week

Week 2

Teaching Performance Expectation 2
Creating and Maintaining Effective Environments for Student Learning

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
Talk with your Mentor about how you can establish and maintain clear expectations for positive classroom behavior (for student-to-student and student-to-teacher interactions). Meet with the school Psychologist or counselor to learn what resources are available to support students, including those who have experienced trauma, homelessness, foster care, incarceration or are medically fragile. Promoting students social-emotional growth is a daily expectation. Describe one strategy at work in your classroom that addresses this goal. What adaptations encourage language learners and students with other instructional challenges to participate meaningfully? How do you establish a positive environment for effective group learning? What distinct roles must be enacted to make the outcome productive?
TPE of the Week

Teachers are surrounded by the TPEs every day. Sometimes it is hard to recognize effective instructional strategies if the labels aren't familiar. The TPE of the week project is designed to deliver daily ideas to mentors and teacher candidates to increase the conversation about why teaching and learning happens.
