  • Identify a learning segment of 3 consecutive lessons to plan, teach, and analyze. You need to have 3 lessons plans that relate by a topic, subject, theme or follow sequentially from one day to the next
    • Example: A lesson plan for Monday, lesson plan for Tuesday, and lesson plan for Wednesday all on the same book.
  • Identify a central focus for the learning segment:
    • an essential literacy strategy for comprehending text OR composing text AND
    • the related skills needed to develop and apply the strategy in meaningful contexts.
    • This means when you explain your learning segment in the “commentary document”, you are clearly discussing how the lessons RELATE.
    • In many cases, students in the course cannot use all three lessons from the course. It is imperative for task 1 that a LEARNING SEGMENT  is seen and the candidate understands what that means.

Must prepare a learning segment of 3 consecutive lesson plans for ELE-literacy (reading comprehension or writing composition only) lessons

Rubric, Instructions and Templates are included.

edTPA Literacy Instruction Task 1 Assignment Instructions

edTPA Practice Task 1 PLANNING – ELE and Secondary “edTPA is a performance-based, subject-specific assessment and support system used by teacher preparation programs throughout the United States to emphasize, measure, and support the skills and knowledge that all teachers need from Day 1 in the classroom.”

http://www.edtpa.com/PageView.aspx?f=GEN_AboutEdTPA.html

As part of the teacher preparation program at Liberty University, the School of Education desires that all of our students build a strong understanding of research-based practices for use in the classroom. Many states across the US require students to complete and submit an edTPA portfolio as part of their licensure program. EdTPA programs focus on three main tasks:

· Task 1: PLANNING. Planning for Instruction and Assessment

· Task 2: INSTRUCTION. Instructing and Engaging Students in Learning

· Task 3: ASSESSMENT. Assessing Student Learning

For the purposes of this assignment, we will take a closer look at Task 1.

Procedures : *templates provided in LiveText

· Select a class and complete the Context for Learning * template.

· Prepare a learning segment of 3 consecutive lesson plans, using Lesson Plan *template – ELE -literacy (reading comprehension or writing composition only) lessons – Secondary –lessons in the content of your endorsement – SPE –see separate instructions

· Submit each lesson plan in Canvas and make revisions based on feedback.

· Respond to prompts in the Planning Commentary * template prior to teaching the learning segment.

· Teach one lesson in your field experience placement.

Context for Learning and Planning Commentary :

· Type your responses in the *templates between the brackets [ ] using Arial 11-point font. Single space with 1” margins on all sides.

· Incorporate formal language in complete sentences and paragraphs.

· Refer to Planning Commentary sample responses provided.

· Context for Learning – at least 3 pages, and must not exceed 4 pages including prompts.

· Planning Commentary- at least 6 pages, and must not exceed 9 pages including prompts.

· Respond to prompts prior to teaching the lesson.

Lessons Plans and materials :

· Type lesson plans in each section of Lesson Plan *template, using Arial 11-point font and single space with 1” margins on all sides.

· Submit 3 lesson plans in one file; no more than 4 pages per lesson.

· Within the file, label each lesson plan (Lesson 1, Lesson 2, etc.)

· Submit no more than 5 pages of KEY instructional materials per lesson plan.

· Submit all instructional materials (except assessments) in 1 file, labeled by lesson within the file (Lesson 1 Instructional Materials, etc.), in order of use.

· Submit assessments in 1 file (no page limit), labeled by lesson within the file (Lesson 1 Assessments, etc.), in order of use. For assessments that are not written work, please include the directions/prompts that will be given to students by the teacher.

In total, you will submit five different files for this assignment. Submit all five files in Canvas, as well as in LiveText.

Task 1: Part A: Context for Learning

Task 1: Part B: Lesson Plans for Learning Segment (all three lesson plans in one file)

Task 1: Part C: Instructional Materials

Task 1: Part D: Assessments

Task 1: Part E: Planning Commentary
