Information About Students (Including IEP’s): Please describe (briefly) how you
used knowledge of students to inform your planning/instructional practices. This
may include how you routinely differentiated instruction for diverse learners.

 I have gotten an opportunity in this placement to look over 4 or more of my

students IEP as well as student data from students that are being evaluated

and referred for special education. My first IEP that I was able to get to read

over was from one of my kindergartener’s reevaluation, and I got to help

decide what goals, that we should keep and what goals we should get rid of

for his IEP. It was so exciting and neat to be able to see all of what I have

learned about through my years in school and apply it to a real student re-

eval on a student that I am working with and getting to observe their

behaviors and performance five days a week. Getting to see the other side of

things of all that goes into the before steps of deciding the IEP goals, and that

mastery you want to set for the child to achieve. Mrs. Weston and I have both

decided that the particular student whom we are looking at for reevaluation,
PDE 430 – Student Teacher Evidence Form & Log

has way too many goals written into his current IFSP, and that with what is

currently written as his goals are way too many and will be hard for him to

even reach mastery in. Within this next few weeks, myself and Mrs. Weston

will look and track the student’s performance and behaviors and compare it

to how he has been doing so far to determine what goals to keep, change or

take away.

Instructional Strategies: What instructional strategies did you employ that

demonstrate your commitment to using developmentally appropriate/best
instructional practices/principles of learning in your planning? These may include
educational psychological principles and theories.

- Sounding out words and then blending them together
- Word sort
- Social stories
- Daily visual schedule

Category II: Classroom Environment

Student teacher/candidate establishes and maintains a purposeful and
equitable environment for learning, in which students feel safe, valued, and
respected, by instituting routines and setting clear expectations for student

Lesson and/or Unit Plans: How did you PLAN for your classroom environment?
This may include planning for transitions, use of visuals, etc.
- I planned for my classroom environment by making sure to include many
visuals and examples in my lesson plans because I have a group of
PDE 430 – Student Teacher Evidence Form & Log

students that have various learning needs, IEPs and different ways of
- For my unit plan/ other lesson plans I made sure to plan all my activites
to be fun and engaging for students because many of my kids have
attention difficulties when it comes to learning and seem to struggle with
completing activities unless they are very fun and engaging and include
lots of breaks, and transitions from one activity to the next the flow

Resources/Technology/Space: What adaptive/adapted resources, technology did

you use to demonstrate your commitment to providing equitable learning
opportunities? How did you use the space in your classroom in your lessons to
maximize the learning environment? Did you change the set up from what it is
- An example of one of the many adaptive resources that I used during my
unit was utilizing the Visio board for my student who has vision problems.

- I also made sure that all of my resources were explicit and explained to
student step by step along with multiple examples of what I wanted them
to complete.

- I used the space in the classroom to maximize the learning environment

with my lessons, by making sure that while teaching my lessons I was not
just sitting or standing in front of the students talking at them, I made
sure I was involving and interacting with all of them.

Classroom Management Techniques: What management techniques did you use

for transitions, student participation, discipline, etc.? What routines did you
establish and use (continue)?

Learning Styles and Early Childhood/Middle Level Philosophy: What visual

technology did you use to help students who are visual learners? What verbal or
audio technology/techniques did you use? How did you help kinesthetic learners?
How did you use your knowledge of best practices for early childhood
instruction/ML Philosophy to inform your classroom environment?

- certain books for vocabulary. (helps my audio, and visual learners.)

- Brainpop videos to introduce new concepts to students.
- Giving the students lots of examples as written as well as picture
examples to help my visual learns.
- Zern- Online math games and learning website
- Epic- Online reading website where students can have books read to them
with illustrations or watch a video of someone reading the book.
PDE 430 – Student Teacher Evidence Form & Log

- Kids A-Z another online reading website that is great for students who
have trouble with comprehension. This website allows the teacher to pick
out specific books in the child reading level that we think would be a good
fit for them. Then after the child had read a book, it will prompt them
directly after with a comprehension quiz that the must passes on the
reading, in order for them to move forward onto another book.

Student Relationships: What did you do to develop student relationships? How did
you develop rapport with them? What were your interactions with students like?
- I also helped better develop relationships with my students, by making
sure to have each and every students name memorized by the third day in
my placement.
- Talking to each student at different times during the day. Interacting
with students in line
- Giving students encouraging notes on their desks before tests.
- Reading with students during rise and read.
- Giving each student fun bookmarks to use while reading.
- Talking with students about their weekend each Monday morning

- Setting Clear Behavioral Expectations/Standards of Conduct and

Effective Management of Student Behavior: What were your
expectations of student behavior? How did you establish these? How did
you redirect students who did not meet your expectations? My
expectation of student’s behavior was a little different at first. I had in my
mind that they would already know all these things and be so well
behaved like my last placement with My co-op. However, I had to keep
reminding myself that my last placement was during the spring after
students had already learned a fair amount and had established rules,
expectations. Which is different from the fall when in the very beginning
of school, the students do not know much of anything or classroom rules,
or grade rules, and what is expected of them as Kindergarteners, first
graders and second graders.
- I had to establish all of these behaviors and expectations of my students
and manage student’s behavior with the help of my co-op and the use of a
classroom money and reward system.

Other: Please list anything else you feel is relevant to show how you created a
classroom environment conducive to learning.

delivering instruction, engages students in learning by using a variety of
instructional strategies.

Knowledge of Content/Pedagogical Theory through Instructional Delivery:

How did you use educational psychological principles/theories and knowledge of
content pedagogy/child development through your instructional delivery? (Please
note – this is different than PLANNING! Here – describe how you used these
principles DURING instruction!) Example – “When I realized my students’ attention
span was waning, I gave them movement/brain brakes where I sang a song and
allowed them to dance to it.”

- When I realized that my students were having a hard time staying

focused or staying on task and not paying attention or talking to much I
made sure to have the whole group stop whatever they were doing put
their pencils down and take a small stretch break/ brain break to get
out some energy get them to refocus.
- Knowing that some of my students get frustrated easily and can get
quickly overwhelmed, I made sure to include
Instructional Goals Reflecting PA Standards: Did you set goals for your students
that reflect PA standards? How well did you communicate these goals to your
students? (Ex: setting clear objectives at the beginning of all lessons and making
sure the closure of each lesson referred back to the goals.)
- I did make sure that for each of my lesson my instructional goals reflected
the pa standards as well as the district standards.
- Each objective at the beginning of each lesson were very clear and related
directly to what I wanted the students to get out of the lesson and know/
understand at the end. Each of my lessons referred back to the main goal
of the lesson.

Communication of Procedures and Explanations of Content: Reflect on your

ability to explain procedures and content. How did you ensure that directions were
followed? How well do you explain new content in a way your learners can

- I think that I did a very good job at communicating to students the

procedures and content explanations of each lesson I made sure to ensure
that directions were explained properly without students have questions,
by makings sure to ask students, to give me a thumbs up after directions
if they were good to go and understood what I wanted them to do, a
thumbs in the middle if they sort of understood, but need more
clarification, or a thumbs down if they needed me to completely re-
explain directions.
PDE 430 – Student Teacher Evidence Form & Log

- I also ensure that directions were followed by having an assessment piece

to each lesson to check to see if students were able to grasp and follow
what I taught them and what I wanted them to do.

Use of Questioning/Discussion Strategies that Encourage Participation: How

did you work to ensure that all students (not just the ones who raise their hands)
participate? How do you work to ask questions at high levels of cognition?
- After asking a question, saying out loud to the class so only one person
knows the answer, then more hands go up okay so three people know, 4
people ect?
- After asking a question saying why I am seeing the same people raise
their hands come on guys let me hear from someone who has yet to
- Having lots of chances for students to turn and talk to the person next to
them to share if they did not feel comfortable participating or sharing to
the whole class.

Engagement and Pacing: How did engage your learners during your lessons? How
did you ensure that your pacing was on target?
- I engaged learners during my lessons by making sure all my activites that
I planned and used with the students were creative and were not boring
and just worksheet based.
- I also made sure that my lessons were able to adapted with pacing based
on how much reinforcement and reteaching I would need to do for
certain students.

Informal/Formative and Formal/Summative Assessments: How did you use

informal/formative assessment during your lessons to inform your instruction? How
did you use summative assessment and the data from it to inform your assessment?

different lessons, or subjects that I might not necessary know a whole lot
about or be comfortable with

- I have also gotten a lot strong with my teacher voice.

- I gain information on my own instructional delivery after each lesson

from my mentor teacher, as well as when writing my own reflections for
each lesson and really reflecting long and hard about my teaching, and
finding things that I can improve upon or do different for next time.

- I have also gotten so much better at adapting my lessons to meet the

different needs and IEP goals of each and everyone of my students.

Integration of Disciplines: How did you work to ensure that students are making
interdisciplinary connections during your lessons?

Grouping Practices: How did you flexibly group students during your lessons to
ensure equity?
- For student grouping I made such each time to take into consideration
different students learning levels. Students who get along good together
and ones that do not. As well as students who are easily distracted by
other student. Or students that are too chatty when sat next to each
