Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. An originality report is provided when you submit your task that can be used as a guide.
You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.
A. Complete the attached “Introduction to Preclinical Video Observation Form” as you watch 10 videos, all selected from the attached “ATLAS Video List.” Use only one form for all 10 videos.
Note: Search for each video by title in the “Atlas Video Observation Program” website, found in the web links section below. Do not change or delete any part of the form, and follow instructions for each section exactly as directed.
B. Reflect on six of the 10 videos watched in part A by doing the following. For each response be sure to:
• use a different video for each set of requirements in part B (i.e., parts B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, and B6 must all address a different video)
• include evidence from each video as support
• identify each video by title or case number
1. Describe how the teacher assesses student learning in one identified video.
a. Evaluate the appropriateness of this assessment method for the learning environment observed in part B1.
b. Explain one way you would adapt or modify this assessment method to ensure that all students in the observed classroom setting are successful.
2. Describe an instructional strategy that met the needs of students observed in a second identified video.
a. Evaluate how well this instructional strategy met the needs of the students observed in part B2.
b. Explain how you would implement the instructional strategy from part B2 into your own teaching practices.
3. Describe how a learning theory is evident in a third identified video.
a. Identify one theorist whose position aligns to the learning theory described in part B3. Then explain why the theorist’s position aligns to that learning theory.
b. Describe how you would apply the theory from part B3 to your own teaching practice using a different technique within the same learning theory.
4. Describe how the teacher in a fourth identified video incorporates technology in the classroom to enhance student learning.
a. Explain how this use of technology does or does not align with best practices for the appropriate use of technology.
Note: Best practices relate to theory or research-based practices that enhance lessons in ways that are over and above nontechnological approaches.
b. Evaluate how the technology observed in part B4 enhances student learning.
5. Describe an instructional resource used for the lesson in a fifth identified video.
a. Evaluate the effectiveness of this resource, including whether or not it is developmentally appropriate for the learners in the classroom observed in part B5.
Note: Make sure your evaluation of the effectiveness of the resource aligns to best practices.
b. Describe how you would use an additional instructional resource to enhance student learning in the lesson observed in part B5.
6. Describe how students in a sixth identified video engaged in a listening, speaking, reading, writing, or thinking activity that provides opportunities for them to use higher-order thinking skills.
a. Describe how you would enhance student engagement in the higher-order thinking activity in the lesson observed in part B6.
C. Reflect on your current teaching philosophy as it relates to instructional strategies and models using evidence from at least three of the videos watched in part A for the following points.
• Briefly describe your current teaching philosophy for instructional strategies and models
• Describe strategies observed in the videos that you would like to emulate, including evidence from at least one video as support. Identify the video by title or case number.
• Describe strategies observed in the videos that you would like to avoid, including evidence from at least one video as support. Identify the video by title or case number.
• Describe characteristics of a classroom environment observed that you would like to teach, including evidence from at least one video as support. Identify the video by title or case number.
D. Acknowledge sources, using APA-formatted in-text citations and references, for content that is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized.
E. Demonstrate professional communication in the content and presentation of your submission.
