Agenda, Resources and Teaching Strategies:
This Week's Learning
Goals:
By the end of this week,
TCs will
1) Identify and analyze
elements required for
establishing and
planning the learning
environment
2) Explore “big picture
planning”
3) Explore and
participate in a variety
of teaching/learning
strategies
4) Begin to formally
engage in reflective
practice
Success Criteria (
describes in very
specific terms, what
successful attainment of
the learning goals look
like/sound like; how will
students specifically
provide evidence of
their learning to
demonstrate their
knowledge and skills,
also refer to
achievement charts for
the subject; co-
constructed with
students?)
Teacher Candidates will
demonstrate their
understanding of the
goals by...
1) providing sufficient
and appropriate
evidence linking theory
to practice for
categorizing an activity
during the first week as
effective or ineffective
in establishing the
learning environment in
a written reflection.
2) accurately
responding to a
scenario by applying
knowledge of
backwards design to a
particular problem.

Only pages 1-3 are available for preview. Some parts have been intentionally blurred.

3) identifying and
comparing at least two
teaching/learning
strategies implemented
during the class.
4) TCs will apply
knowledge of one of the
teaching strategies to
their own experience

it go?!
Whiteboards
Description -
This can be used as a
hook to access/review
prior learning OR it can
be used as a
consolidation activity at
the end of a class. Using
the whiteboards, students
are asked several
questions related to a
particular topic. Students
can use words and/or
symbols as responses.
Method - The teacher:
establishes and
reviews rules of
use
involves all
students;
models
appropriate use;
includes open and
closed ended
questions
Considerations -
Whiteboards:
What are some
“rules of use”?
Establish
appropriate vs.
inappropriate use
Establish how and
when white board
answers are
revealed
Establish

Reflection
Strategy: Think Pair
Share
Description
Think/pair/share is a
strategy whereby
students think alone for
a specified amount of
time (wait time) in
response to a question
posed by the teacher.
Students form pairs to
discuss their ideas, and
then share responses
with the class.
Think/pair/share is used
to help students check
their understanding
during a learning
experience and provide
opportunities for
practice or rehearsal. It
provides a simple
structure within a short
time frame for all
students in the class to
