Teacher Work Sample

Student teachers in the elementary and secondary education programs complete a teacher work sample as the culminating project for the program. A teacher work sample is a set of 3-5 lessons for one subject in one grade level along with background information, assessment data, and a reflection on the data and the lessons. A description of the teacher work sample, a template, and a scoring rubric are provided in the links below.

In addition, below are examples of teacher work samples that can serve as models of proficient work.
