Teacher Work Sample 4 &5

This assignment will be second to turn in for the TWS.  In this section you will Design for Instruction and 5 Instructional Decision Making.

Design for Instruction 

In this section you will have administered your pre assessment to analyze student performance and know what you need to address to ensure the lesson is successful for all students.  This is a very important part of the TWS. What patterns did you find with your students?   You will discuss each learning goal and chart to show student performance.  Then discuss what students were able to do and what they were unable.  

EX:  The overall performance of students was much lower than expected.  Majority of the students scored below 40% as indicated by the pre assessment.  For goal 1 the students were to explain what their geographic area consisted of and most of the students were unable to do so.  On question 10 the students did well.  Just describe what you found out and how that will shape the development of your lesson.  How will you continue this lesson to make sure students are reached at their level?  A chart can be developed here showing the learning goals.

Remember to follow the subheadings and input information as requested in guidelines.  Also look at page length at the bottom of each factor of TWS

Instructional Decision Making

 is requesting that you show modifications you made after presenting your lesson.  This is a fairly simple one.  Identify the modification and discuss.  Follow the subheadings.  This is discussion.  Adhere to directions.

Read thoroughly your response and follow TWS.  Use your TWS given in previous assignment to develop 4 & 5
