Expanded Course Description

EED 478 is the first of two culminating experiences in the Elementary Education iTeachAZ program. It emphasizes planning effective lessons,
implementing instruction with whole and small groups of students, and collection and analysis of student data with a focus on student achievement.

EED 478 is built around Teach for America principles of setting big goals, investing students and their families, planning purposefully, executing
effectively, continuously increasing effectiveness, and working relentlessly. During this course, Teacher Candidates plan and implement units of
instruction, use data to set ambitious academic goals for students and implement strategies to invest students in their own learning. Additionally,
Teacher Candidates learn to develop and use data tracking systems to monitor student progress with the ultimate goal of learning to take
responsibility for student achievement.

Throughout the course and clinical experience, Teacher Candidates are evaluated with the System for Teacher and Student Advancement (TAP)
program instructional rubric and the Teachers College Professionalism Rubric. This performance-based assessment process measures Teacher
Candidates’ instructional effectiveness, content knowledge, and professional dispositions with a focus on continuous professional growth. Teacher
Candidate performance is tied to K-8 student learning through the design, delivery, and evaluation of units of study which include multiple,
systematic processes for monitoring and reporting student achievement. Throughout the performance assessment process, Teacher Candidates
are challenged to reflect upon their own knowledge, skills and dispositions and how their instructional effectiveness impacts student achievement.

Face-to-Face Seminar Meetings:

EED 478 is a face-to-face seminar that meets weekly. The student teaching seminar begins on the day designated in ASU’s schedule of courses.
The seminar is accompanied by a 4 day per-week clinical experience, in grades 1-8, following the mentor teacher’s contract hours. Clinical
experiences begin on the first day new teachers report to the district to which the Teacher Candidate is assigned. Teacher Candidates follow the
district’s fall and spring breaks and ASU’s winter break.

Course/Instructor Evaluation
The course/instructor evaluation for this course will be conducted online 7-10 days before the last official day of
classes of each semester or summer session. Response(s) to the course/instructor are anonymous and will
not be returned to your instructor until after grades have been submitted. The use of a course/instructor
evaluation is an important process that allows our college to (1) help faculty improve their instruction, (2) help
administrators evaluate instructional quality, (3) ensure high standards of teaching, and (4) ultimately improve
instruction and student learning over time. Completion of the evaluation is not required for you to pass this
class and will not affect your grade, but your cooperation and participation in this process is critical. About two
weeks before the class finishes, watch for an e-mail with "ASU Course/Instructor Evaluation" in the subject
heading. The email will be sent to your official ASU e-mail address, so make sure ASU has your current email
address on file. You can check this online at the following URL: http://www.asu.edu/emailsignup.

University/Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College Policies


Professional Behavior (this section is only necessary for initial certification students)
It is expected that students exhibit professional behavior inside the classroom, during intern
placements, and working with other students outside of the class on assignments related to this class in
addition to behavior in the classroom on ASU’s campus. If at any time your behavior is ‘unprofessional’,
the instructor may refer the student to the Director of the Office of Student Services (OSS) for the
development of a Professional Improvement Plan (PIP). https://education.asu.edu/student-forms-
policies.
Attendance and Participation
Attendance and Participation-Student Teaching
Teacher Candidates are allowed (3) absences from student teaching per semester. Excessive
absenteeism, whether planned or unplanned may result in an assignment of a grade of “E” for student
teaching. Students with excessive absences due to illness or other extreme circumstances may be
eligible for a medical or compassionate withdrawal from student teaching. In these cases, the student
should contact the Office of Student Services to develop an appropriate course of action. The Office of
Student Services and the Office of Professional Field Experiences will work cooperatively with the
student to determine eligibility for a Medical Withdrawal. If the student is granted a Medical Withdrawal,
they must complete a new Student Teaching Application/Placement Request in Tk20 upon return to the
Professional Teacher Preparation Program.
Prioritizing student learning: When Teacher Candidates are absent for any reason, they are
expected to take whatever steps are possible to ensure that student learning is not interrupted. This
includes sending the mentor teacher lesson plans and preparing materials in advance when possible.
Documentation of absences
Teacher Candidates must complete the “Absence Request/Verification Form” when they are absent for
any day or part of a day. Once completed, this form should be signed by the Mentor Teacher and
submitted to the Site Coordinator/University Supervisor. The expected timeline is 5 days in advance of
a planned absence or within 24 hours of return from an unplanned absence. Absences should be
documented on the Timecard and on the Weekly Progress Report submitted by the Mentor Teacher.
Arriving late/ Leaving early
Arriving late or leaving early will count as a half-day absence. Teacher Candidates should provide
advance notification and document partial day absences using “Absence Request/Verification Form.”
Planned absences: Teacher Candidates are expected to notify their Mentor Teacher and Site
Coordinator/University Supervisor five school days prior to a planned absence. University Supervisors
may excuse absences for the following events given that the Teacher Candidate is in good academic
standing and provides verification of attendance at the event: Taking the NES exam or attending an
employment interview and or ASU’s Career Fair/Interview Day. These excused absences do not count
towards the three allowed absences per semester. The Teacher Candidate must complete the Absence

EED 478 – Term 7 Revised 6/1/16 – Page 32


Division of Teacher Preparation
Request/Verification Form and notify the Mentor and Site Coordinator/University Supervisor according
to the absence policy.
Unplanned absences: Teacher Candidates should call their Mentor Teacher at school prior to the start
of the contract day and call the Site Coordinator/University Supervisor as early as possible in the case
of an unplanned absence (ex: illness, emergency). If Teacher Candidates are paired, they should also
call their partner Teacher Candidate. Teacher Candidates are expected to submit verification of
unplanned absence within 24 hours of return to school.

Pregnancy Leave Policy for the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College: Please refer to
https://education.asu.edu/student-forms-policies.
Children attending ASU Classes: As per the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College policy, no individuals
under the age of 12 are permitted to attend ASU classes.
Use of Recording Devices in clinical experiences (internship and student teaching): ASU
students are prohibited from using any recording device to capture any activity in the classroom without
the prior written permission of the mentor teacher which describes the pedagogical reason for making
the recording. The use of any such recording must be in conformance with the pedagogical reason and
with the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Any failure to adhere to
this standard constitutes unprofessional conduct.

Fall and Spring Breaks: Student teachers follow the fall and spring breaks of the district to which they
are assigned. It is the student teacher’s responsibility to pay attention to district fall and spring breaks
and holidays to make sure he/she completes the required weeks of student teaching before the end of
the ASU semester.

Dismissal from Clinical Experiences: Student Teaching and/or internship


In the event a school district requests that a student be dismissed from an internship or student
teaching placement for unprofessional or inappropriate behavior the intern or teacher candidate will be
required to attend a meeting with the Division Director or designee, the Director of Student Services
and other college representative as determined by the Division Director to discuss the reasons for
request for dismissal from the internship or student teaching placement.

If it is determined that the allegations of a violation of unprofessional behavior resulting in the request
for dismissal from the school/district are warranted, one or all of the following actions may result. The
intern or teacher candidate:
 will be dismissed from the internship or student teaching placement.
 will receive a failing grade (E) for the internship or student teaching course*.
 will not be assigned another internship or student teaching placement during the same semester in
which the teacher candidate was assigned a failing grade.
 may not withdraw from the internship/clinical experience course or student teaching course. If a
withdrawal is processed by the Office of the Registrar, the grade will be administratively changed to
an (E).
 must withdraw from all courses that require concurrent enrollment with internship or student
teaching.

*If an intern or teacher candidate wishes to appeal the (E) grade, s/he can follow the grade appeal
process as outlined on the Teachers College website. The first step in the grade appeal process is to
meet with the course instructor. Students have 10 business days to appeal a grade.

If a teacher candidate wishes to repeat the internship or student teaching and concurrent coursework
for the semester following the dismissal, the teacher candidate must show evidence of how they plan to
resolve the situation or circumstances which resulted in the removal from the internship or student
teaching. The teacher candidate will be required to meet with the Division Director or designee and the
Director of Student Services to develop a Professional Improvement Plan (PIP) outlining expectations
for continued professional growth and academic development.

EED 478 – Term 7 Revised 6/1/16 – Page 33


Division of Teacher Preparation
In the event that the teacher candidate violates the rules, policies, or procedures for conduct
established by the school, district, local education agency, ASU, Teachers College, and/or the law while
on a PIP for unprofessional behavior, the teacher candidate will be dismissed from the initial teacher
certification program. Teacher Candidates who are dismissed may not petition to continue in their
current academic plan, but may be eligible to pursue other non-certification degree options within
Teachers College (i.e., Educational Studies, Master’s degree without certification) or within other
colleges at ASU.

See academic performance requirements: https://catalog.asu.edu/policies/mlftc

Late and Missing Assignments


As in any classroom, assignments are expected to be turned in on time. All assignments are required (they are
not optional). Assignments must be completed and submitted on Blackboard, due by 11:59 PM on the due
date. It is your responsibility to make sure that your work is completed accurately and on time. This syllabus
serves as your reference for assignments and their due dates. All readings and assignments must be
completed before each class meeting. Written assignments must be submitted before or on the due date. For
written assignments, it is expected that you will write neatly (if handwritten), use correct grammar, mechanics,
and spelling. Points will be deducted for unclear and/or incorrect writing.
 Late assignments will not be accepted without prior arrangements. Late policy- no late work
accepted unless previous plans in place with instructor prior to due date. Make-ups will permitted for
assignments submitted with at 10% daily grade deduction. This course will not include any extra credit
assignments.
Group assignments and classroom activities require collaboration and cooperation with other students. Please
inform the instructor immediately if there are problems within your group. If the instructor is not aware of any
issues prior to the due date of an assignment, in terms of collaboration and cooperation between group
members, it will be assumed that each member of the group equitably participated in the project and will
receive the same group evaluation. Each member of the group is responsible to be sure that the assignment
has been turned in on time. If the assignment is not turned in for the group, then all group members will receive
the grade earned.

Academic Integrity/Plagiarism
The ASU Student Handbook contains the following information: “The highest standards of academic
integrity are expected of all students. The failure of any student to meet these standards may result in
suspension or expulsion from the university and/or other sanctions as specified in the academic
integrity policies of the individual academic unit. Violations of academic integrity include, but are not
limited to, cheating, fabricating, tampering, plagiarizing, or facilitating such activities. The university and
unit academic integrity policies are available from the Office of the Executive Vice President and
Provost of the University and from the Deans of the individual academic units.”
The rest of the code, which consists of several pages, is available at the following URL:
http://students.asu.edu/srr/code.
Dependent upon instructor’s discretion, penalties for plagiarism range from loss of points on plagiarized

CO-TEACHING STRATEGY DEFINITIONS & EXAMPLES

Strategy Definition/Example
One Teach, One teacher has primary responsibility while the other gathers specific observational
One information on students or the lead teacher. The key to this strategy is to focus the
Observe observation – where the teacher doing the observation is observing specific
behaviors.
Example: One teacher can observe students for their understanding of directions
while the other leads.
One Teach, An extension of One Teach, One Observe. One teacher has primary instructional
One Assist responsibility while the other circulates to check for understanding, assists students
with their work, or monitors behaviors.
Example: While one teacher has the instructional lead, the person assisting can be
the “voice” for the students when they don’t understand or are having difficulties.
Station The co-teaching pair divides the instructional content into parts. Each teacher
Teaching instructs one of the groups, groups then rotate or spend a designated amount of
time at each station – often an independent station will be used along with the
teacher led stations.
Example: One teacher might lead a station where the students play a money math
game and the other teacher could have a mock store where the students purchase
items and make change.
Parallel Each teacher instructs half the students. The two teachers are addressing the same
Teaching instructional material and presenting the material using the same teaching strategy.
The greatest benefit to this approach is the reduced student to teacher ratio.
Example: Both teachers are leading a ‘question and answer’ discussion on specific
current events and the impact they have on our economy.
Alternative This strategy allows one teacher to work with students at their expected grade level
Teaching while the other teacher works with those students who need the information and/or
materials retaught, extended, or remediated.
Example: One teacher may work with students who need re-teaching of a concept
while the other teacher works with the rest of the students on enrichment.
Team Well -planned, team- taught lessons exhibit an invisible flow of instruction with no
Teaching prescribed division of authority. Using a team teaching strategy, both teachers are
actively involved in the lesson. From a students’ perspective, there is no clearly
defined leader – as both teachers share the instruction, are free to interject
information, and are available to assist students and answer questions.
Example: Both instructors can share the reading of a story or text so that the
students are hearing two voices.

The strategies are not hierarchical – they can be used in any order and/or in any combination to best meet the
needs of the P-12 students in the classroom. (with adaptations from) Copyright 2011, St. Cloud State

are required to be actively engaged in all elements of the classroom beginning the first week in the placement.
Teacher Candidates should assume teaching responsibilities as outlined in the chart below. Note: This table is
meant to be a guide for gradually increasing the role and responsibility of Teacher Candidates. Site
Coordinators will work with Mentors and Teacher Candidates to adjust as needed.

PROGRESSION OF LESSON PLANNING RESPONSIBILITIES

Teachers College has adopted a standard lesson planning template for direct-instruction and inquiry-based
lessons. Teacher Candidates are required to use the template when planning lessons for the formal
Performance Assessment (PA) process. Additionally, Teacher Candidates should use the ASU lesson planning
templates when planning all lessons during student teaching, unless otherwise instructed by the Site
Coordinator. Site Coordinators will work with Mentors to adjust, as needed.

Note: This table is meant to be a guide for gradually releasing lesson planning from the ASU mandated
templates.
