Physical Education teacher candidates utilize assessments and reflection to foster student learning and inform instructional decisions.
|PED 434 Presentation|
Artifact: PED 434 Presentation
Date: Fall 2010
This is my power point presentation from PED 434. In this presentation I showed results for the assessments before, during, and after instruction for each of the three domains. I also take these results and compare them to show student learning.
This power point presentation shows that I can make and use assessments for evaluating student learning before, during, and after instruction. I can make the assessments for each domain as well. This allows me to assess student learning that went on during my lesson. It allows me to understand what students had trouble with and what students did well with.
The ability to use appropriate assessments to evaluate student learning before, during, and after instruction is very important for physical education teachers. It allows us to evaluate student learning during each class. It also shows what students understand and do not understand. Based on the information from assessments physical education teacher's can determine what students need more time with. They can also determine when students are ready to progress to the next level.
Element 5.3: Utilize the reflective cycle to implement change in teacher performance, student learning, and/or instructional goals and decisions.
Artifact: EDU 355 Reflection Log
Date: Spring 2011
|EDU 355 Reflection Log|
This is one of my reflections from EDU 355. During this class I was placed at an elementary school where I would observe and then teach parts of lessons. This is the reflection of my first day at the elementary school answering one of the questions for my log.
This artifact shows that I can reflect on the different activities, routines, and plans, that take place in physical education. I reflect on the overall feel of the class, the students, and the teaching that the teacher does. I also reflect on the teachers behavior management plan and classroom rules. By being able to reflect like this I can implement change in the way I teach and the different plans and rules I have in place for my students.
Being able to utilize the reflective cycle to implement change in teacher performance, student learning, and/or instructional goals and decisions is very important for a physical education teacher. This is important because improving teacher performance, student learning, and instructional goals and decisions is what physical education teachers strive for. Being able to reflect on these things will allow us to become more effective teachers.
