Part 1: Implementation
For this field experience, you will deliver the literacy activity you created in Topic 2, or a lesson of your mentor’s choice, to a small group of students that your mentor teacher has selected. Remember to focus on: Instructional strategies for literacy development. Differentiation, including accommodations to meet the diverse needs of students. Creating engagement and promoting discussion.
Part 2: Mentor Feedback
After your implementation, ask your mentor teacher the following: How effectively did I integrate literacy into the activity? Were students engaged? How effectively did I meet the needs of all students? What did I do well and what can I do better?
Use any remaining field experience hours to assist the mentor teacher in providing instruction and support to the class.
Part 3: Personal Reflection How did I integrate literacy in the activity? Did students demonstrate the concepts of the activity? How? How did I differentiate by using resources and/or technology to make necessary accommodations in the activity? What do I feel went well in the class and what might have gone better? How did I know if the students met the learning objective of the activity? What would my next steps be for my future practice?
Write a reflection of 250-500 words summarizing your implementation experience, mentor’s feedback, and your personal reflection.
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
