Clinical Field Experience D: Targeted Teaching Activities

Objectives, learning activities, and assessments are all aligned to a standard. It is important to align these components so teaching can be targeted to meet the students’ needs. The data collected from the pre-assessment drives the creation of targeted learning activities. As always, reflection on these practices is a key element in improving practices. Use the data collected from your pre-assessment to determine an appropriate targeted teaching activity to implement during this field experience.

Allocate at least 3 hours in the field to support this field experience.

Prior to teaching your targeted activity, discuss with your mentor teacher your objectives, activities, and assessments. Use any feedback to improve the targeted teaching plan. Implement the targeted teaching activity and related assessment with the same student you have been working with during your field experience. Then debrief the experience with your mentor teacher.

Use any remaining field experience hours to assist the mentor teacher in providing instruction and support to the class.

In a 250-500 word summary, discuss the results of your targeted teaching activity. Describe the conversation you had with your mentor teacher regarding the objectives, activities, and assessments. Reflect and explain how you designed, delivered, and assessed your targeted teaching activity. Indicate how you plan to implement what you learned in your future teaching practice.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
