ASSIGNMENTS - DESCRIPTION

The Classroom Management Book

Procedure Presentation

  1. You will be assigned a date in which you will present. You will need to choose at least 1 or more Procedure. Use information available in the textbook (including information from the QR codes if desired).

  2. Prepare a google slide that includes the following:

  • The name of the procedure.

  • Include graphics/photos/visual elements that explicitly model and/or provide visual cues for the steps. You can either role play with your teammates or use a video to demonstrate your Procedure.

3. Use the google slide to teach the procedure to the class during our Zoom session.

Prior to the presentation, you will submit a detailed lesson plan (if working in a group, 1 lesson plan is fine) and submit it via Canvas prior to the beginning of class.


You will want to copy and paste in your report for the following assignments; observation 1, first steps, observation 2, and Semester Calendar & Units.


Observation 1- (100 points). Each write up should be at least a half page, double
spaced and 12 font. Click here to view
template.

Watch THREE videos of effective teaching practices IN ANY CONTENT AREA of at least 10 minutes in length. You can pick a video from online at the following, but not limited to...

  • Teaching Channel, go to https://www-teachingchannel-com.libproxy.csun.edu/ and log in using your standard CSUN username and password. You will notice that this is a special link that includes “libproxy.csun.edu” in the URL, and it is required that you access The Teaching Channel this way and not directly from www.teachingchannel.com.

  • youtube,

  • Teach Like a Champion 2.0 (username taechang and password is csun). Great resource, but the videos here are typically less than 10 minutes. Will not work for this assignment, but could be used for other assignments if looking for a teaching video.


Afterwards, you will need to answer the following questions: (you will have three write ups and please use the template below by copy and pasting and filling in your responses.)

-------

Your Name

Which Video did you observe (list website) and length of video

Information about video; school, demographics, teacher, students, etc. (20 points, following directions, using template, thoroughness).

1) Which TPE(s) is the teacher most clearly demonstrating in the video clip? (20 points)

2) Describe the instructional practices and/or techniques that are shown in the video. What are the benefits of implementing these practices/techniques? (20 points)

3) What are some concerns and/or challenges that could develop as these practices are used? (20 points)

4) Evaluate the teacher’s rationale for the lesson in the video that you observed. To what extent do you agree with the teacher’s rationale? (20 points)


First Steps (100 points)

Getting off to a strong start each semester or year depends on several key elements. For this assignment, you will develop each of the important documents listed below. Eventually, these documents will serve as an important part of your student teaching assignment and in your teaching.

1. Develop a statement about your philosophy of education and teaching. Your statement should explain what you believe about how students learn, what you believe is important in their learning process and how you will try to teach. Of course, as you go through the program, this philosophy will grow, will develop, and will change. (20 points)

2. Develop classroom rules that you will expect students to adhere to in your class. Write the rules in a format that you will use with the students. (20 points)

3. Develop a discipline plan that will outline and explain the various steps that you will take in order to keep students accountable in your classroom. Write this as you might give to parents and students. (20 points)

4. Write a letter that introduces you to the parents.

• You might want to include some brief information about yourself and your background and qualifications.

• The letter should give information regarding the specific course in which the student is enrolled, especially the content of the course, special assignments, etc. Here you might include general units to be studied, books to be read, etc.

• You would also include information about your grading policy, homework policy, classroom rules, discipline plan, etc.

• Keep in mind that you want to give information about how a parent might contact you at school, make an appointment, visit the classroom, etc.

(20 points)

5. Think of what you might want to accomplish during the first week of school. This could be what you want to accomplish once you take over from the Cooperating Teacher or you get you own class.

• Describe what you will do in order to become acquainted with the students and some of their strengths and some of their needs.

• Create an brief outline for the plans of your first week.

• Provide specific details about the timeline of activities and an example of any activity that you might use with the students.

• Do not just list what you will do. (Poor example: Make seating chart. Hand out student materials. Have a warm-up activity.) Provide a sample (if you do a survey questionnaire, provide a copy.)

• Fully explain what you will do each day and what the students will do each day. (20 points)



Semester Calendar & Units (100 points)

If you are in SED 554, use that school assignment to provide the calendar dates for this assignment. Otherwise, use the sample provided for you. Then, use the dates from that school to create the structure for the semester. Sample Academic Calendar (you can omit 1 bullet from section 1 and omit 1 hyphen from from section 2)

1. Develop a semester calendar that shows

• Grading periods (progress reports, report cards, finals)

• Back to School Night, Parent Conferencing, Open House, Holidays, Special Events, Graduation, etc.

• Changes in daily schedule (assemblies, shortened days, testing, and professional development, planning time, etc.)

2. Select a grade level and a specific course (ex. 9th Grade English, 2nd Semester).

• Outline the units to be studied for the semester

• Using the information and materials that you have available, develop an outline for each major unit, including the following:

- Identify each major unit to be studied during the semester.

- Identify the major outcomes to be achieved by each unit.

- Identify major state standards or Common Core Standards to be addressed during each unit.

- Identify how each unit relates to the previous unit and to the next unit to be studied.



Observation 2 –

Engagement of Students (100 points) Each write up should be at least a page long, double spaced and 12 font. Watch THREE videos of effective teaching practices IN YOUR CONTENT AREA of at least 10 minutes in length from any source like, youtube, teaching channel* , ATLAS, or other source and answer the following questions: (you will have three write ups).


Videos

Your Name

Which Video did you observe (list website) and length of video

Information about video; school, demographics, teacher, students, etc. (20 points, following directions, using template, thoroughness).

1) Which TPE(s) is the teacher most clearly demonstrating in the video clip? (20 points)

2) Describe the instructional practices and/or techniques that are shown in the video. What are the benefits of implementing these practices/techniques? (20 points)

3) What are some concerns and/or challenges that could develop as these practices are used? (20 points)

4) Evaluate the teacher’s rationale for the lesson in the video that you observed. To what extent do you agree with the teacher’s rationale? (20 points)


You will present a hook presentation this semester.

Lesson Intro or “Hook” Presentation (100 points)

Design and present a developmentally appropriate activity that engages students as a part of a lesson that supports a clear learning goal. In this assignment you will, identify the topic. Activities that merely entertain or keep students busy are not acceptable. The 5-10 minute presentation may employ the use of media or other hands-on materials. Visual aides are highly recommended. The key is to “hook” our attention to want to learn what is coming next. After you conduct your hook, we will spend a few minutes discussing what you did well and what you could do better next time. I have found previous class sections have much to offer their colleagues and growth takes place throughout the semester.

A Lesson Plan (this lesson plan does not have to be detailed) must be typed and turned in (due by the beginning of class uploaded to canvas). This assignment will enhance your ability to discover strategies that will enhance your ability to motivate your students.

You can present with a partner(s) or by yourself if you have permission by the instructor.

Example 1, Example 2, Example 3, Example 4

Audience, while presentations are occurring, please list the positives from the presentation along with comments. Also list any positive or negative techniques being used.


Final Exam (200 Points) Open notes.
