Focus of session l.jpg

Focus of Session

  • What strategies can programs use to facilitate the videotaping, before, during, and after the assessment?

Before the teaching event l.jpg

Before the Teaching Event

  • Logistical considerations

    • Do you have permission?

      • Example permission slips.

    • Do you have enough equipment?

      • Candidates will need to check out equipment.

        • Be aware of timing among various groups/cohorts

        • Consider deadline for camera return – have a system in place.

      • Inexpensive video cameras are available

        • Many students have their own or borrow or purchase them

        • Many school sites have cameras

Before the assessment l.jpg

Before the assessment…

  • Logistical considerations

    • We need to buy equipment…what and how much?

      • Small inexpensive cameras

      • Microphones

      • Tripods

Before the assessment5 l.jpg

Before the assessment…

  • Prior experience with videotaping.

    • Helps work out many logistical/anxiety issues

    • Video Reflection #1: analyzing videos of other teachers

      • No stakes

    • Video Reflection #2: done independently & individually

      • Low stakes

    • Video Reflection #3: video elicitation with supervisor

      • Slightly higher stakes

    • Video Reflection #4: TPAC

      • High stakes

What is video elicitation l.jpg

What is Video Elicitation?

  • Candidate videotapes a lesson without supervisor present

  • Candidate chooses 15-min. segment to view with supervisor

  • Candidate and supervisor meet to view video together

  • Candidate plays tape, stopping whenever he wants to comment

  • Supervisor’s job is to elicit, not to advise

    • “And why do you think that happened?”

    • “And your reason for that was…?”

    • “So you moved those students apart and…?”

      Can greatly improve reflection on the part of the student

Dress Rehearse

  • Suggestion: Place video camera in classroom in advance of teaching event

    • Helps “acclimate” students

    • Minimizes clowning for camera

  • Provide “Tips for Success” sheet to candidates before first low-stakes videotaping

  • Before the assessment, introduce Task 2 rubrics

    • Helpful to know criteria in advance

    • Practice practice practice

      • Helps to make it feel more natural

      • Circulating, questioning, calling on students, interacting, promoting active engagement

During the assessment l.jpg

During the assessment…

Advice for Students:

  • Revisit “Tips for Success” and rubrics

  • Videotape as much as possible during

  • Double check the sound! Double check the picture!

  • If using camera with limited recording time, be sure to download onto computer daily.

    Other Things I Need to Do:

    • Clarify to CTs and site support what their role is (and isn’t) during teaching event

After the assessment…

What I Tell My Students:

  • Choosing the Clips

    • Do not search for “perfect” teaching

    • Must be unedited!

    • Don’t watch every minute of every taped lesson segment

    • Do keep notes of parts of lesson(s) that might be worth choosing– best done daily during teaching

  • Refer to Handbook

    • Criteria and steps for completion are laid out in detail

  • Refer to Rubrics

    • Choose clips according to the criteria by which you’ll be judged

Preparation of video clip(s):

  • Software

  • Technical support

  • Storage space
