Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
1- Core Assessment: Handbook for Classroom Climate and Management:
Each student will develop and apply personal handbook that will be built around the beliefs and theories studied for this class and his/her core beliefs. The handbook will have sections that will be addressed and supported by educational theories and theorists. The handbook will have plans for building an effective classroom climate and management system. The goal of the handbook is to provide each student with the beginning foundation for building a productive, caring classroom environment that will be developed in his/her future school setting. The handbook guidelines can be found in the core assessment rubric (CAR). There is also a self assessment rubric that each student will submit.
PowerPoint Presentation: Showcase of student’s beliefs/ideas for building a positive, successful classroom climate. The student will use the handbook developed for class as a resource for the 10-12 slide presentation. (Tt is an expectation that students will upload their presentation to portfolio so that it can then be used as a possible resource for future interviews)
2- Quizzes: Readings from the text (Jones/Jones). Each quiz will be given and graded in class.
3. Observations/Scenarios: Written and reflective classroom observations or scenarios will be completed. Specific criteria will be given for each observation/scenario. Discussion will follow and contain questions raised, reflective feedback, ideas, suggestions, etc. Each observation/scenario will have a written reflection that will be evaluated. Some may occur during class times and will not be made up if student is not in attendance.
4. Classroom Activities: Each student/group will write/find (proper citation required) and share with the class members 3 classroom activities that can be used to build positive classroom environments. The students will provide copies for each member in doc sharing. One activity will be done in the classroom with peer participation.
5. 1.2.6 (1.2.6, 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206) Portfolio writing, due at final time
Core Assessment: Handbook for Classroom Climate and Management 400 points (3 turn in dates, the first 2 will be 25 pts each as a completion grade for a total of 50 pts, and the remaining 350 pts will be earned for the 4th or final submission of the handbook).
Powerpoint Presentation -- Professional presentation to showcase your classroom climate – goal presentation to send to prospective districts (Powerpoint sent to instructor w/explanation) 100 points
Observation/Scenarios Write-ups/Discussion 20 points each
Quizzes 10 points each
Classroom Activities with citation 10 points each
Portfolio writing for 1.2.6 (1.2.6, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168) 50 points
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Due dates are on the class syllabus. Late work of daily assignments (i.e. observation/scenario, activities, quotes, etc.) will be accepted up to one week late, but the grade will be reduced an additional 10 percent of earned grade (i.e. if earned an 85% grade will be recorded as 75%). In class activities (scenarios/in class responses, quizzes, etc) are due the date given. If a student is not in attendance when an assignment is done, it can’t be made up. Much of the knowledge gained from the course will be from peers and that is why an in class activity will earn a zero if the student is not in attendance. Late submission of classroom climate and handbook checks (2) will result in no points awarded. The checks receive a completion grade only. Late submission of 1.2.6 quality indicator/performance indicators, final handbook check, and PowerPoint Presentation will result in a grade reduction of 25% from earned grade. Absolutely no late work will be accepted after the assigned time of the final. Any missing assignments after the final’s date will be recorded as a “zero”. Work habits that do not demonstrate a high level of professional behavior may be noted in the Dispositions document.
