Teacher Work Sample Contextual Factors Learning Goals. Contextual Factors. Knowledge of community, district, school, and classroom factors Knowledge of student characteristics and varied approaches to learning
You need at least four implications: One from the characteristics of community, school, & classroom; one from class characteristics; one from student skills (group or individual students)
“Implication” is a noun: it identifies something suggested or implied by a contextual factor.
Share one contextual factor you’ve identified and what’s an implication for your lessons that comes from that contextual factor
Use a learning theory, such as Blooms’ revised Taxonomy, to indicate the different levels of learning of your goals.
You should have 3 to 6 learning goals. Too few and it’s hard to show different levels of learning; too many and your TWS will get too long as you deal with each goal in later chapters.
This will be one of the shorter chapters, but most critical. Your learning goals must align with assessment (chap. 3), instruction (chapter 4), analysis of learning (chap. 6), and references reflection and evaluation (chap. 7)
