There is never enough practice for implementing activities. Each time a lesson is taught, a teacher learns something new about effective teaching practices through self-reflection, especially when implementing multiple content areas in one lesson for cross-disciplinary instruction.
Allocate at least 5 hours in the field to support this field experience.
Part 1: Implementation
For this field experience, you will deliver the literacy activity you created in Topic 2, or a lesson of your mentor’s choice, to a small group of students that your mentor teacher has selected. Remember to focus on:
· Instructional strategies for literacy development.
· Differentiation, including accommodations to meet the diverse needs of students.
· Creating engagement and promoting discussion.
Part 2: Mentor Feedback
After your implementation, ask your mentor teacher the following:
· How effectively did I integrate literacy into the activity?
· Were students engaged?
· How effectively did I meet the needs of all students?
· What did I do well and what can I do better?
Use any remaining field experience hours to assist the mentor teacher in providing instruction and support to the class.
Part 3: Personal Reflection
· How did I integrate literacy in the activity?
· Did students demonstrate the concepts of the activity? How?
· How did I differentiate by using resources and/or technology to make necessary accommodations in the activity?
· What do I feel went well in the class and what might have gone better?
· How did I know if the students met the learning objective of the activity?
· What would my next steps be for my future practice?
Write a reflection of 250-500 words summarizing your implementation experience, mentor’s feedback, and your personal reflection.
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
