Full course description
Candidates work 1:1 with a Field Supervisor for all four semesters of Field Supervision (Year 1 and Year 2). The focus of field supervision meetings and observation/debrief/reflection cycles is to improve the candidate’s teaching and professional effectiveness, and leadership in facilitating IEP meetings for SPED candidates. Individualized support from the Field Supervisor supports candidates with learning how to meld course content into their teaching practice. Candidates’ growth and progress is measured in meeting the Teaching Performance Expectations (TPEs) using the Observation Planning and Reflection Guide (OPRG), that is aligned to the Teacher Performance Expectations and California Standards for the Teaching Profession and contains elements from the Continuum of Teaching Practice (CTP). Candidates will receive formative and summative feedback which guides a reflective learning process and which is documented on the Individual Learning Plan (ILP). Field Supervisors facilitate this course based on each candidate’s developmental level and needs.
