A Teacher Work Sample is a unit of study, much like what you experienced as a student in elementary and secondary schools. Examples would be; simple machines or explorers. In addition to teaching content, you will learn how to think about how the students did and what changes you need to make in your teaching to increase student learning. In ED 510, you will be learning how to check out important information about students, their school, and community. You will later learn how to use this information to plan appropriate assessment and instruction.
Every student in the School of Education will complete 8 core assessments during the time that they are enrolled in a MU School of Education program. The assessments are generally completed as requirements in courses or during student teaching. Your professors and advisors will be telling you about the core assessments. If you are in multiple or dual programs, such as elementary, special education, and early childhood, you will have core assessments for each program.
You will upload your core program assessments onto your electronic portfolio. Foliotek is the company that provides the portfolio. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
