Teaching the Work Sample is a labor intensive and challenging project that preservice teachers and faculty are struggling to make into worthwhile learning experiences. This product is being used to show effects preservice candidates have on their students’ learning. Closely aligned with NCATE pedagogy and content standards, it also matches the commitment teacher educators have to teacher inquiry and action research for teacher candidates. E.

It relates to teacher planning and decision-making and stimulates reflection on student learning and teaching effectiveness. This session will guide teacher educators in reflecting on the performance of preservice teachers. Participants will review samples of preservice teacher efforts for the quality of response toward students who are weak performers.

C. Contribution
This presentation fits under Strand 1 because it addresses “teaching skills and strategies
necessary to prepare for a culturally and linguistically diverse population.”
D. Relevance
The study will employ qualitative evidence to demonstrate successful practice.
Teaching the Work Sample is a labor intensive and challenging project that preservice
teachers and faculty are struggling to make into worthwhile learning experiences. This
product is being used to show effects preservice candidates have on their students’
learning. Closely aligned with NCATE pedagogy and content standards, it also matches
the commitment teacher educators have to teacher inquiry and action research for teacher
candidates.
E. Implication for Action
The emphasis on accountability shown in mandates such as No Child Left Behind
indicate that teachers can not remain in the background on issues of student achievement.
Work Samples offer teachers a method to prove they can analyze and document the
performance of all their students and develop additional ways to meet differences in their
classes.
Section II: Outcomes and Methods
A. Learner/participant outcomes: Describe what you intend the participants to learn
during the session.
The Work Sample is a thoughtful, performance-based task. It relates to teacher planning
and decision-making and stimulates reflection on student learning and teaching
effectiveness. This session will guide teacher educators in reflecting on the performance
of preservice teachers.
Participants will review samples of preservice teacher efforts for the quality of response
toward students who are weak performers. Strategies for teaching the Teacher Work
Sample so needs of all students are better addressed will be discussed.
B. Methods: Describe how you will design the session so that the learner/participant
outcomes are achieved.
