Teacher Work Sample


Beginning fall 2017, all student teachers in the elementary education program (excluding special ed/eled composite majors) will complete a teacher work sample as the culminating project for the program. A teacher work sample is a set of 3-5 consecutive 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 is provided in the link below. More information will be provided in a Canvas site during student teaching, including a template and a rubric.

In addition, below are examples of teacher work samples completed during our pilot semester, fall 2016.
