Student Teacher/Practicum HandbookIntroductionIntroductionThe Teacher Education Program at University of the Cumberlands is dedicated topreparing beginning teachers with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to impactlearning of all students to close the achievement gaps existing in today’s schools/districts. Theinitial teacher certification programs are based on best practices and designed to preparecandidates to be Reflective Constructors of Quality Learning Experiences through CriticalThinking. Reflective- self-reflection of teacher effectiveness in all areas of teaching and learning. Constructors- design lessons based on students’ existing knowledge and skills; baseinstruction on contextual information; actively engage students in the learning process;enable students to connect learning to real world application. Quality- consistently improves instruction based on student assessment data,peers/supervisor(s) feedback, and self-evaluations. Critical Thinking- demonstrating high level cognitive processes in planning,implementation, and evidence of critical thinking through artifacts.During the student teaching/practicum semester, candidates are required to demonstratetheir conceptual, strategic, evaluative, and communicative knowledge. The consistent evidenceof the dispositions of caring, critical and creative thinking, strong work ethic, commitment toexcellence and an adherence to the Professional Code of Ethics is paramount for successfulcompletion of University of the Cumberlands’ teacher education program. Embedded in thedispositions is the candidate’s ability to serve students, colleagues, and stakeholders throughtheir actions. Through service to others, our candidates shall exhibit the strong belief that allstudents can learn.Undergraduate Student Teacher/Practicum Handbook Page 3


All candidates are required to meet and exceed all indicators of the Kentucky TeacherStandards. Ethical teacher and student use of technology must serve as the vehicle to meet theneeds of diverse populations. Additionally, the candidates must demonstrate competency inusing technology for the purposes of aggregating and disaggregating assessment data.Candidates seeking certification at all levels must demonstrate their knowledge andinstructional skills in the content area(s) as effective teachers of reading and writing.

(public or private place)Who may be listening?Why are you discussing this information?For further information on FERPA you may access the information on this websitewww2.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/pdf/2012-final-regs.pdfAttendance Policy:The university coordinators will strictly enforce the UC Education Department attendancepolicy:Any absence over three (3) days from the public school placement(s) during the semester will bemade up. The student will receive an “I” until absences are made up. If the student teacher mustbe absent from the assigned placement, the student teacher must contact the supervising teacherand university coordinator by phone and/or email as soon as possible.The student teacher will arrive and depart based upon the supervising teacher’s employmentcontract. Student teachers will wear their University of the Cumberlands’ ID and sign in daily atthe main office or with the supervising teacher. Practicum students will follow employmentcontract.Grading Policy:The grading policy for the student teaching experience will be based upon a Likert like scale of3,2,1 with 1 being the lowest and 3 being the highest. This grading scale is directly aligned to theKentucky Teacher Internship Program (KTIP) guidelines. Each individual indicator is equallyweighted throughout the standards to total 100% when indicators are compiled. KTIP TeacherPerformance Assessment (TPA) is used to evaluate teacher education candidates throughout theclinical experience. KTIP TPA rubric is located on pages 40-44 of this handbook and in iLearn.The breakdown of the scoring criteria is as follows:3 – criteria demonstrated on indicator: Satisfactory performance on standard2 – criteria partially demonstrated on indicator: Making progress toward standard1- criteria not demonstrated on indicator: Not making progress toward standardUndergraduate Student Teacher/Practicum Handbook Page 6


Individual Action Plan (IAP) PolicyIndividual Action PlanIndividual Action Plan (IAP) PolicyThe Education Department at the University of the Cumberlands is committed to helpingall teacher candidates become Reflective Constructors of Quality Learning Experiencesthrough Critical Thinking. As a teacher candidate in the Teacher Education Program, toachieve success the teacher candidate shall adhere to the Kentucky Teacher andUniversity of the Cumberlands Standards. To foster success, the teacher candidate maybe required to meet with a university faculty member to complete an Individual ActionPlan (IAP). An IAP is a professional growth plan to document area(s) of concern thatmay hinder a teacher candidate’s success in coursework. An IAP monitors studentprogress of specific goals created by a faculty member with prescribed strategies to meetthe identified goals. The teacher candidate will complete the IAP goals with facultyassistance and demonstrate continued progress throughout the designated IAP timeframe.Procedure for Initiating a Candidate’s Individual Action Plan (IAP)A professor, academic advisor or University Coordinator may develop an IAP.The above mentioned will create an IAP documentingspecific area(s) of concern (growth area)specific actions and strategies designed to improve the identified area of concernestablish a time frame for completion of the strategies and actionsrecommend resources to support the candidate’s professional growth in the area(s) ofconcern.The Department Chair will review the IAP with the faculty member and then sign anddate for approval.The faculty member will meet with the teacher candidate to discuss IAP.Teacher candidate’s signature and date acknowledges they will follow the IAP.The faculty member will provide the teacher candidate and the databasemanager a copy of the completed IAP.The IAP will be monitored by the faculty member of record. The faculty member willreport the outcome of the IAP upon the conclusion of the time frame to the databasemanager.If goals of IAP are met, the candidate will continue with their planned program.If goals of IAP are not met, the faculty member will create a remedial IAP with modifiedactions and strategies within an additional time frame following the same process asabove. The teacher candidate will then be recommended to TEAC or GEAC to be placedupon Probationary Status.Undergraduate Student Teacher/Practicum Handbook Page 7


The TEAC or GEAC Committee will be notified by the faculty member of the outcomeof the remedial IAP. If the teacher candidate successfully completes the remedial IAP,TEAC or GEAC may/may not remove the teacher candidate from Probationary Statusand grant permission to continue in the education program. If the teacher candidate doesnot successfully complete the remedial IAP, TEAC or GEAC may/may not recommendthe teacher candidate to withdraw from the education program.Undergraduate Student Teacher/Practicum Handbook Page 8

Task A-1Teaching and Learning ContextContext is a snapshot of where your students are academically and why.Building a respectful relationship with your students is vitally important to their success andyours.Completing seating charts the first week helps you start to get to know your students.Context is why you can rarely, if ever, teach a lesson the same way twice. You will never havethe same mix of students in any classroom.Kentucky Intern teachers learn to complete the Task A-1- Teaching and Learning Context form,which helps to focus on the context BEFORE starting to plan instruction. You CANNOT planinstruction before you complete Task A-1- Teaching and Learning Context.Teaching and Learning Context - Task A-1 will need to be completed once per placement. If theteaching environment changes significantly, e.g. new school, change in classroom placementconfiguration, change in grade or courses taught, this form MUST be completed AGAIN.DIRECTIONSGo to www.kyepsb.net/internships/ktiptpatemplates.asp. Print out Task A-1 Teaching andLearning Context in Word version.The top of the form is where you identify yourself and put the date that you fill out the form.Include the number of students in the class, the grade level, and their age. I recommend that youput in the title, which class it is that you are identifying.Undergraduate Student Teacher/Practicum Handbook Page 11

Your committee members will review and evaluate your performance on this task using Standard 1: The teacherdemonstrates applied content knowledge and Standard 2: The teacher designs and plans instruction.Component I: Classroom TeachingTask A-2: Lesson Plan ExampleIntern Name: Josie Brown Date: 3/3/2011 Cycle: 3# of Students: 21 Age/Grade Level: 12 th Content Area: English (AP)Unit Title: Literary Analysis and Research-based Arguments:Lesson Title: Revealing meaning in textLesson Alignment to UnitRespond to the following items:a) Identify essential questions and/or unit objective(s) addressed by this lesson.In this unit, we are studying how style, structure and language reveal overall meaning in a text. We're also practicing close readingsand analyzing how reading closely enables us to interpret a text more thoroughly. We're focusing on three essential questions:1. How do style, structure and language reveal overall meaning in a text?2. How do novels lead to meaningful discussions about complex issues in life and society?3. How can close readings and textual support be utlilized to strengthen arguments and discussions?To address those questions in this lesson, we are doing close readings of the passages that the students read on the mock exam. Weare also analyzing the multiple choice stems and choices to better understand how textual support and analysis can lead to finding theright answer for each question.b) Connect the objectives to the state curriculum documents, i.e., Program of Studies, Kentucky Core Content, and/or Kentucky CoreAcademic Standards.CC.11-12.SL.1.a Come to discussions prepared, having read and researched material under study; explicitly draw on that preparationby referring to evidence from texts and other research on the topic or issue to stimulate a thoughtful, well-reasoned exchange ofideas.CC.11-12.R.L.4 Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in the text, including figurative and connotativemeanings; analyze theimpact of specific word choices on meaning and tone, including words with multiple meanings or language that is particularly fresh,engaging, or beautiful.(Include Shakespeare as well as other authors.)c) Describe students’ prior knowledge or focus of the previous learning.Prior to this lesson, students worked on analysis of passages within the novel the Road. They worked on style and creation of themestatements using textual support and analysis of that support.d) Describe summative assessment(s) for this particular unit and how lessons in this unit contribute to the summative assessment.1. Students will read passages that could be included in an AP exam and present arguments using PowerPoint presentations2. Students will complete a mock AP exam in which they apply the skills identified in the objectives, then will analyze theirperformance.These two assessments allow me to see that the students understand knowledge application strategies they will need on their APexam, and more importantly, that they understand the elements of good argument.e) Describe the characteristics of your students identified in Task A-1 who will require differentiated instruction to meet their diverseneeds impacting instructional planning in this lesson of the unit.While the class is generally well-behaved, there is sometimes tension between the students in Spanish Immersion and the studentscoming from general or advanced classes. I've worked hard to help them build relationships with each other and to understand thateveryone has an equal voice in the classroom. Also, there are a few students who continue to struggle with the demands of thiscourse. For students who are performing below grade level, I'm now offering tutoring almost daily, both in the form ofindividualized sessions, independent study time, and in group review sessions. We work routinely during class and after school ondeveloping writing skills, and the readings are scaffolded so that we are just now reading the most difficult work. For students atgrade level, many of the activities that we're doing push them to think in a deeper and more analytical way.Undergraduate Student Teacher/Practicum Handbook Page 17


The last couple of group projects have really pushed students to come up with their arguments and to thoroughly defend them. Forstudents above grade level, they need specific, focused feedback that will enable them to continue to grow and develop. I haveselected groups to help students find success and support. For the group project in this unit, I balanced groups based on personalities(shy versus outgoing, etc) in addition to ability levels. I have incorporated more models and guides than I previously used in AP sothat students will have the scaffolding and support that they need.f) Pre-Assessment: Describe your analysis of pre-assessment data used in developing lesson objectives/learning targets (Describehow you will trigger priorknowledge):Students took a complete mock AP Literature exam on a Saturday in January. They now have the results of the essays onthat test, and they have their original answer packets and bubble sheets for the multiple choice section. That exam exposeda need for students to improve on their interpretive text-reading skills, and their need to analyze the concepts deeper. Intheir presentations, they will be expected to create multiple choice questions as well as a brief interpretation.Lesson Objectives/Learning TargetsAssessmentInstructional Strategy/ActivityObjective/target:1. Students will read closely to presentan interpretation of the text, using textualsupport and inferences to support theirinterpretation.Objective/target:2. Students will analyze the deeperconcepts within a text throughpreparation for and participation instudent-led presentations.Assessment description:Mock AP exam with five multiple-choice passagesAssessment Accommodations:Assessment description:Students will respond to classmate presentationsusing the CPS clickers, and will participate indiscussion about their classmates' presentations.Assessment Accommodations:hard copies of the questions will be available, incase we have technical difficulties and/or anyonecannot use the CPS. I don't anticipate that beingnecessary, since all of the students have used theCPS before.Strategy/Activity:I will assign the students to fivegroups and each group will beresponsible for reading a separatepassage with five multiple-choicequestions to follow. As a group,they will paraphrase the passageand analyze each of the selectedquestions. Groups will share theparaphrase of their passage, andtheir classmates will answer thequestions using the CPS clickers.The "expert" groups will explainthe correct answers in response tothe responses.Activity Adaptations:Students will be placed in groupsthat are appropriate for their ailitylevel.

(Use this section to outline the who, what, when, and where of the instructional strategies and activities.)1. Students will be assigned to five groups, and each group will be assigned a passage from a previously administered AP exam,along with 5 multiple choice questions.2. Students will get into groups, and each group will paraphrase the passage and analyze each of the multiple choice optionsprovided.3. Students will create a PowerPoint presentation to present their paraphrased passage and the multiple-choice questions for theirclassmates.4. Students who are part of the audience for each presentation will answer the multiple-choice questions presented by the groups,using the CPS.5. The presenters will lead discussion about the answers and explain why each one is right or wrong.6. Students will complete an exit slip, answering three questions: For the questions you answered correctly, what led you to thecorrect response? If you missed any of the multiple-choice questions, how did you determine the correct answer? What did thisactivity teach you?Undergraduate Student Teacher/Practicum Handbook Page 19

Component I: Classroom TeachingTask C: Lesson Analysis and Reflection ExampleIntern Name: Josie Brown Date: 3/30/2011 Cycle: 3To ensure that your lesson analysis and reflection inform instruction, this task must be completed no later than twodays after each observed lesson.1. Explain how you determined the levels of student performance on your objective(s)/learning targets. Refer torubrics or criteria used in this determination. (What was effective? What was not effective? What would you keep?What would you change?)For this objective, I used the results of the multiple choice section of the mock exam. This section of the exam isvery challenging, and it is considered a success if students get close to half of the answers right. I scanned the class'sresults and compared them to national averages. I considered scores from 15 to 20 below the expectation. Iconsidered scores of 21-34 meeting the expectation. I considered scores of 35-43 (the highest score in the class) tobe exceeding the expectation. I felt like this was very effective, because they will encounter this strategy when theytake the exams, and it will help them on the exam and beyond that.2. For each lesson objective/learning target, sort the student performance into three categoriesa) Below criteria 9 # of studentsb) Meeting criteria 8 # of studentsc) Exceeding criteria 3 # of students3. For each category, describe the students’ strengths and learning needs.a) Below criteriaStudents in this category need help reading closely. Students who are missing this many questions often do not havea solid grasp on what the passages are saying, so they need help with reading comprehension strategies (since thepassages can be extremely challenging). Students in this area need to work on answering the more approachablequestions (such as ones that refer to specific lines and literary devices) rather than the more complex questions.b) Meeting criteriaStudents who have met the criteria now need to be pushed into the next level, which in this case often means simplygetting a few more answers right. They have a solid basic comprehension of the passages, but they need to work onbuilding their vocabulary skills and they need to review literary terms. Additionally, they often need to work onreading carefully. They are doing well to get some of the questions right, but they need to work on reading moredeeply and critically.c) Exceeding criteriaThe students in this category are excellent readers who think critically and efficiently. They are able to processcomplex passages and evaluate the most accurate answers without being distracted by other answers that are true oronly slightly inaccurate. They can think critically even when under pressure and significant time constraints. Theyare well versed in the various genres and styles of writing. They need to be pushed--this can be done by forcingthem to delve more deeply into the difficult passages (because often the questions for those passages are moresuperficial).4. Reflect on the following:a) How effective was your instruction based on analysis of student performance in identified in number 2 above?Undergraduate Student Teacher/Practicum Handbook Page 21


Because of the difficult nature of this section of the exam, I was pleased to see that everyone tried to answer the questions.Although some of the scores were low, several of the students in this category got a few questions for multiple passages right,which indicates that they are pushing through the difficulty and attempting to answer the questions. However, many of thestudents ran out of time, so putting them in slightly pressured situations that require quick reading and thinking would makethem more successful. In class, a lot of the students indicated new awareness of the passages and the questions, and their selfreflectionsafter the deconstruction indicated that they had learned from the process.Undergraduate Student Teacher/Practicum Handbook Page 22
