TPE of the Week

Week 4

Teaching Performance Expectation 4
Planning Instruction and Designing Learning Experiences for All Students

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
How could technology simplify a lesson this morning for a student with special needs? Knowing your class, what adaptations to the directions in the Teacher's Edition will be necessary? Why? Plan and implement a lesson today that requires students to use technology to demonstrate their learning (Chromebooks, iPads, interacting with the SmartBoard, etc.) Teach the "ticket out the door" strategy. Give every student a sticky note. Ask each person to write an example of what new learning resulted from your lesson and post it on the classroom door when exiting. How are the English Language Development practices you are studying being illustrated in the classroom? How do they benefit student learning?
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.
