Daring Venture: Innovative Use of Clinical Placements and
Performance Assessments
Purpose - Present concrete, innovative models created between IHEs and Pk-12
school districts to prepare highly effective teachers. Provide the opportunity to engage with
grantees around key ideas to discuss how they might integrate these into their programs.
Goal - Through listening to the panel discussion and engaging in interactive, round table
dialogue, session attendees will be able to gather information that will assist them in
crafting innovations in their programs.
TQP Grant Purpose

• Field-based assignments
• Strong emphases on PLCs and RtI
• Focus on action research in rural
school
classrooms
Enhancing Clinical Practice
• Intense, full-time, yearlong classroom experience
• Integration of content and pedagogy with schoolembedded practice
• Collaborative selection of mentors and residents
• Simultaneous renewal of program, schools and
mentors
• Focuses on student achievement
and classroom –based inquiry
Measuring Program Effectiveness
• Teaching Performance Expectations (TPEs)
• Performance Assessment for California Teachers
(PACT)
• Field evaluations

CONCEPTUAL REFRAMING:
1.Planning and assessment as important as instruction
1.Clinical teacher and intern(s) focus on co-planning
• Dialogue around goals
• Activities to reach goals
• Assessments to determine whether goals are met
1.Roles and responsibilities more collaborative than supervisory
1.Apprenticeship model employed-not supervisory model
1.Focus on K-12 students rather than on the student teacher
DEFINING CO-TEACHING INTERNSHIP
Co-Teaching Internship: What is Viewed as
Innovative?
INTERN:
1. Co-Planning—Integral part of the model
2. Using clear co-teaching strategies
3. Making instructional formats explicit (shared)
4. Increasing time for enhanced teaching practice throughout 15 weeks
5. Collaborating roles in an environment with continuous dialogue about content, students,
and context
CLINICAL TEACHER (SCHOOL):
1. Co-teaching—reduces class size ( 3 = 30, not 1 = 30), reduces negative behavior, and
increases student engagement and individual attention
2. Dialoguing about planning, leading to better conceptualized and articulated lessons
3. Enhancing student achievement (St. Cloud data). (Since NC teacher evaluation now
includes student achievement, co-teaching is viewed as positive for the teacher and
school/district are more positive about taking student teachers.)
UNIVERSITY:
1. Reducing placement need and increasing placement quality
2. Increasing more professional development for smaller cadre of clinical teachers
3. Creating a cadre of intern teacher leaders with common goals/processes
ENHANCING CLINICAL PRACTICE
Co-Teaching Internship: How Is Clinical
Practice Enhanced?
A. Nature of Co-teaching Occurring
[Co-Teaching Strategies Chart]
1. What is the nature of co-teaching that is
occurring?
a. Number of co-taught lessons
b. Types of co-taught lessons
c. Progression of type of co-taught lessons
2. Does co-teaching occur more often in certain
subjects?
B. Co-Teaching Experience
[Co-Teaching Survey]
3. What are the experiences of candidates in a
2:1 scenario as compared to those in a 1:1
scenario?
4. What are teacher candidates’ opinions of the
co-teaching experience?
C. Teaching Ability
[Walkthrough form, Progress Reports, TPA
Score, Final Evaluation]
5. What differences exist in the teaching ability
of interns participating in co-teaching and
those not participating in co-teaching?
D. Dispositions
[CSAT, Disposition Form]
6. Does co-teaching improve pre-service teachers’
ability to collaborate?
7. Does co-teaching affect pre-service teachers’
professional dispositions?
E. Development of Teacher Self-Identity
[Semi-Structured Interview Protocol]
8. Do the teacher self-identities of those
involved in co-teaching during their internship
differ from those not involved in co-teaching?
F. Planning
[Transcriptions from Recorded Planning Sessions]
9. What does the planning look like in co-taught
classrooms? Does it differ from that occurring in
traditional internship classrooms?
G. Follow-up of Graduates
10.K-12 Student Achievement
11.Scores on the McRel Teacher Performance
Appraisal Instrument
12. Scores on the CLASS Lite

Co-Planning Co-Teaching
•
Co-Planning
•
•
•
•
•
Making better tasks.
Asking better questions.
Soliciting student thinking.
Finding evidence of learning.
Co-Teaching
• Mentor and Intern working together to set the task.
• Circulating the room to find evidence of learning.
• Collecting artifacts of student work.
Co-Assessing
•
• Assess for learning
• How do we assess for learning?
• (Identify evidence of student learning)
• How do we document the evidence of
learning that occurred (or didn’t
occur)?
• How do we widen the our lens about
what counts for learning?
Reflect on the Process
•
• Bring this experience beyond the
episodic…
• How do we apply our understanding
about teaching/learning to new
situations?
• How do we document evidence of
growth in our apprenticeship model of
developing problem-solving urban
educators?

Discussion Questions:
1. What education reform initiative is being embraced
at your college or university?
2. What are ways in which your college or university
measure candidate effectiveness?
3. What are ways in which your college or university
can enhance clinical practice?
4. Senate Bill 3582, Educator Quality Enhancement,
recommends a residency after completing their
degree before receiving licensure. The bill calls for
connectivity with graduates during this
induction/residency period. If passed, how will this
affect your program?
