Opening Windows of Opportunity: Orientation for Future Teachers
Unformatted Document Text:  Opening Windows of Opportunity: Orientation for Future Teachers This session will focus on the development, implementation, and structural components of an introductory seminar for future teachers. The seminar is centered almost exclusively on the conceptual framework for professional education programs, with heavy emphasis placed on professional dispositions. There are three separate segments to this semester long seminar. First, sessions are held at the beginning of the semester that serve to introduce the conceptual framework as well as specific instruction on required criteria related to transition points for future teachers. The second phase of the seminar is a guided, 25-clock hour classroom observation requirement. The guided classroom observations focus primarily on two current classroom teachers relative to the learning outcomes of the conceptual framework. An important part of the observation exercise is a reflective analysis comparing the two classroom teachers based on the learning outcomes and dispositions for future teachers. At the end of the semester a final meeting is held where the future teachers are divided into small groups and are lead in a discussion on their reflective analysis of the classroom teachers observed. Again, the discussions are centered on learning outcomes of and dispositions. Part of the final meeting time is used to introduce and engage the perspective teacher education candidate in hands-on LiveText training. The final session is an interactive practice in LiveText.

Opening Windows of Opportunity:
Orientation for Future Teachers
This session will focus on the development, implementation, and structural
components of an introductory seminar for future teachers. The seminar is centered
almost exclusively on the conceptual framework for professional education programs,
with heavy emphasis placed on professional dispositions. There are three separate
segments to this semester long seminar. First, sessions are held at the beginning of the
semester that serve to introduce the conceptual framework as well as specific instruction
on required criteria related to transition points for future teachers. The second phase of
the seminar is a guided, 25-clock hour classroom observation requirement. The guided
classroom observations focus primarily on two current classroom teachers relative to the
learning outcomes of the conceptual framework. An important part of the observation
exercise is a reflective analysis comparing the two classroom teachers based on the
learning outcomes and dispositions for future teachers. At the end of the semester a final
meeting is held where the future teachers are divided into small groups and are lead in a
discussion on their reflective analysis of the classroom teachers observed. Again, the
discussions are centered on learning outcomes of and dispositions. Part of the final
meeting time is used to introduce and engage the perspective teacher education candidate
in hands-on LiveText training. The final session is an interactive practice in LiveText.
In this portion of the seminar, perspective candidates are introduced to LiveText
procedures, and several exercises are directed at getting the future teacher started on the
development of a professional portfolio.
The orientation seminar was developed and implemented to better prepare future teachers
