The purpose of this assignment is to discover strategies for promoting, collaborating, and communicating the school mission and vision. Additionally, you should also gain insight into the effect of vision and mission as a factor in the current school culture and be able to apply this experience to future roles.
Allocate at least 3 hours in the field to support this field experience.
At your field experience school, observe two teachers teaching in their classrooms. Analyze specific classroom routines, activities, and environmental factors, and the degree to which they support a positive student-centered culture.
Following the observations, write two research-based recommendations for one teacher to promote a more positive student-centered culture. Incorporate 1-2 evidence-based research articles as the basis for each of your recommendations.
In your recommendations include:
- A description of the strategy and its purpose, relating it to the observations that you made.
- How to implement the strategy.
- Anticipated effects of the strategy.
- How the recommendation aligns to the school’s vision.
Submit the recommendations to your principal mentor for feedback.
Use any remaining field experience hours to observe or assist the principal mentor.
Write a 250-500 word reflection of your observations, recommendations, and feedback received from the principal mentor. Consider how you would share these strategies with the teacher you observed.
Incorporate PSEL Standard 5 and/or Standard 6 and describe how you will apply what you have learned to your future professional practice.
While APA style format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and PSEL standards should be referenced using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
