 Instructions for Completing Assignment:

(1)   Use the Teacher Work Sample template available on Blackboard under Course Information as a Microsoft Word document. Design, implement, and assess a one to two week instructional unit for a group of students that includes individuals with disabilities. Address the following components: (a) Part I: Description of the Learning Environment, (b) Part II: Teacher Work Sample Planning, and (c) Part III: Analysis and Reflection of the pre and post assessment results.

(2)   The teacher work sample (TWS) should not exceed ten pages. Items included in the TWS should be directly related to the unit, and the purpose for implementation should be clearly outlined for the reader.

(3)   Submit Parts I and II to your instructor according to the timeline outlined in the course syllabi for SPED 641.

(4)   Once the entire TWS is completed, submit all three parts to the instructor of record. Check carefully for spelling and grammatical errors within the TWS.

(5)   The completed TWS should be submitted one week prior to the last day of class as outlined in the tentative course calendar.

d.      Number of males and females

e.       Age range of students

(3)   Accommodations/Adaptations

a.       In general, describe possible adjustments that will be made to accommodate differences in such things as educational disabilities, learning modalities, motivation, and/or skill level.

(4)   Use of Instructional Resources

a.       List all instructional resources that you may use throughout the duration of the unit plan (one or two-weeks). 

Part II:  Teacher Work Sample Planning

(1)   Development and Relevance

a.       Grade/Age level and Subject area

b.      Title of unit

c.       Behavioral objectives for pre and post test containing specific criteria

d.      Competency levels

e.       Development of criterion- referenced test (CRT)

f.        Students will administer, score and interpret a CRT from the designated academic area using the student’s curriculum.  Teacher candidates will report the following information:

                                                               i.      behavior of the student during the testing session

                                                             ii.       test results

                                                            iii.       strengths and weaknesses derived from test results,

                                                           iv.      Based on test results, recommendations for instruction

(2)   Comprehensive Assessment Plan

a.       Describe and attach a copy of the pre and post assessments used in the unit plan. Assessments may occur formally or informally. A rubric, if used for evaluation, must be the same for both pre and post-assessment.

b.      Unit Daily Lesson plans

                                                               i.      Teacher candidates will develop a lesson pretest and posttest for each lesson only for the TWS. All data will be reported using the attached chart format. 

Part III:    Teacher Work Sample Results

(1)   Use of Assessment Results to Modify Lesson Plans- From the pre-assessment results, what changes were made to the initial instruction plan for this unit? Explain any modifications or adaptations that occurred to address the needs of the learner.

(2)   Analysis of Pretest and Post Assessment Results - Include quantitative data for each objective and for each student. 

a.       Include in this discussion a brief description of performance for students who meet the criteria stated in the objective by indicating “mastered.”  Be sure to describe what the student knows, can do, and understands as a result of this unit.

b.      Describe the performance of students who did not meet the criteria stated in the objective by indicating “not mastered.”

c.       Describe circumstances, if any, that should be considered when noting the poor achievement of students who demonstrated little or no gains.

(3)   Reflection of the Assessment Process and Results

a.       Based on the obtained results and experience gained from this TWS unit, what will be changed in planning, teaching, and/or assessment the next time the unit is taught?

b.      How are these implications congruent with CEC standards, SLU Conceptual Framework, collaborative skills, and the individual needs of students with disabilities?

c.       Describe how you linked assessment and instruction in planning, implementing, and evaluating the TWS?
