VI. Purpose/ rationale: This course is meant to serve as a final, full-day field experience prior to licensure.
The “Collaborative Model for Preparing Professional Learning Facilitators” is the basis for all of Kennesaw State University’s teacher education programs. Working from a solid content background, the teacher as facilitator demonstrates proficient and flexible use of different ways of teaching to actively engage students in learning. Facilitators are well versed in the characteristics of student of different ages, abilities and cultural backgrounds. They are skilled in integrating technology into instruction and create an environment in which students can be successful and want to learn; facilitators know when and how to asses learning by means of various forms of traditional and authentic assessments. Facilitators are well prepared for successful careers in teaching are expected to act in a professional manner in all circumstances with colleagues, parents, community members, and their own students. As a professional educator, the teacher facilitator values collaboration and seeks opportunities to work with other professionals and community members to improve the educational experiences for children and youth.
This course complements the sum total of students’ academic and professional preparation, including content knowledge and professional knowledge in areas such as the Georgia Quality Core Curriculum, the National Standards in Foreign Language, the American Council of Teachers of Foreign Languages’ guidelines for grades K-12; pedagogy and best practice in foreign language teaching; knowledge of technology appropriate to grade levels K-12; self-reflection and assessment; and diversity inherent in contemporary American schools.
Use of technology: Students enrolled in this course expand upon what they know about technology in schools and classrooms. Students are expected to demonstrate proficiency in the technology requirements of the Bagwell College of Education. For details of these requirements, see the Field Experiences Handbook (sold through the KSU bookstore) and the Foreign Language Education Program Handbook, available on-line at www.kennesaw.edu/foreign_lang.
Diversity: This course enables students to address multicultural issues, such as learning styles and strategies, family and cultural background, and gender differences, in extant, contemporary classroom settings.
Kennesaw State University provides program accessibility and reasonable accommodations for persons defined as disabled under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 or the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. A number of services are available to help disabled students with their academic work. In order to make arrangements for special services, students must visit the Office of Disabled Student Support Services (ext. 6643) and arrange an individual assistance plan. In some cases, certification of disability is required.
VII. Course goals: The Professional Teacher Education Unit (PTEU) prepares learning facilitators who understand their disciplines and principles of pedagogy, who reflect upon their practice, and who apply these understandings to make instructional decisions that foster the success of all learners. As a result of the satisfactory fulfillment of the requirements of this course, the students will be able to demonstrate competency in instructional planning and implementation, student assessment, self-assessment and target language skills necessary to be a successful foreign language teacher. With guidance from the university supervisor and collaborating teacher, the students will:
Demonstrate an understanding of the cultural and linguistic background and needs, as well as the general social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs of the students they teach in grades P-12 (Program objective: 1A)
Demonstrate knowledge of a variety of approaches, motivational and “managing” techniques in teaching the target language in order to create a non-threatening, interactive environment (1B)
Demonstrate proficiency in their respective target language at levels(s) defined by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (2A)
Demonstrate an understanding of the approaches to foreign language curricula and instruction and theories of second language acquisition (2C)
Demonstrate the ability to communicate to students of all ages (P-12), peers and supervisors the skills and knowledge outlined above (2D)
Demonstrate not only the currently accepted practice(s) in foreign language education but also the challenges to proficiency-oriented instruction (2E, 2F)
Integrate theory and practice in foreign language instruction to plan, implement and assess appropriate instruction for the grade level taught (3A)
Choose, coordinate, adjust and use materials, technology and approaches for effective foreign language instruction and evaluation appropriate to grade level that encourages students to solve problems and apply skills outside the classroom (3A, 3B, 3C, 3D)
Model “global perspectives, attitudes and values” they expect their students to display with respect to the target culture, school culture and all other cultures (4A)
Collaborate in an ethical and professional manner with students, school personnel, university personnel, parents and community members for the benefit of the students and the profession (4B)
Engage in continuous self-evaluation of practice, pedagogy, language skills and professionalism, recognizing that language learning and language teaching are never-ending processes (4C, 4D)
VIII. Course requirements/assignments/seminars: Attached.
IX. Evaluation and performance assessment: Students enrolled in this course will earn a grade of Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory based upon evaluations made by the collaborating teacher and university supervisor. The final grade will be determined as follows: S=85% or higher and U= less than 85%for the following assignments:
50% Effective lesson planning and implementation: The university supervisor(s)
will observe each student at the school site(s) and via video recordings.
These observations may be either announced or unannounced. Following
each observation the student will schedule a conference with the university
supervisor and collaborating teacher to discuss feedback.
The student teacher must show strong evidence of effective lesson planning, including implementation of assessment; classroom management in the target language appropriate to grade level and school “culture”; proficiency in the target language without excessive reliance upon English; a variety of techniques and methods appropriate to the grade level and school environment; and self-assessment of effectiveness. The student must document that (s)he has incorporated technology into lesson planning and implementation. Please refer to Section VI of this syllabus for details of the technology requirements. The student must be receptive to feedback and suggestions offered by the collaborating teacher and university supervisor.
All lesson plans must include the following:
Student objectives Activities Materials/technology Assessment QCC
15% Participation in seminars and conferences for feedback: Student teachers are expected to be present at on-campus seminars, both in the Department of Foreign Languages and the Bagwell College of Education, and to actively participate in discussion of topics related to the field experiences. Students must schedule conferences with the university supervisor and collaborating teachers to discuss feedback and progress in this course. Students are encouraged to attend workshops and seminars offered by the school/county. Students must document attendance and participation in seminars in the Field Log included in this syllabus.
35% Written assignments, reports, journal, Weekly Conference Sheets, and observations: The student teacher is required to submit various written assignments detailed in the course outline. Each Friday by 5:00, the student teacher must submit Weekly Conference Sheets to the university supervisor. In addition, the student teacher is required to keep a written journal with weekly entries of significant events. The journal entries should be professional and not personal, demonstrating self-analysis and self-evaluation, and averaging about ONE PAGE in length. The student teacher should alternate between writing journal entries in English and in the target language. Student teachers may ask the university supervisor(s) for help with grammar in these assignments but they may not ask for help from other persons. To do otherwise risks committing academic dishonesty
X. Academic honesty:
Every KSU student is responsible for upholding the provisions of the Student Code of Conduct as published in the Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs. Section II of the Student Code of Conduct addresses the University’s policy in academic honesty, including provisions regarding plagiarism and cheating, unauthorized access to University materials, misrepresentation/falsification of University record or academic work, malicious removal, retention, or destruction of library materials, malicious/intentional misuse of computer facilities and/or services, and misuse of student identification cards. Incidents of alleged academic misconduct will be handled through the established procedures of the University Judiciary Program, which include either and “informal” resolution by a faculty member, resulting in a grade adjustment, or a formal hearing procedure, which may subject a student to the Code of Conduct’s minimum one-semester suspension requirement.
Disruptive behavior: The University has a stringent policy and procedure for dealing with behavior which disrupts the learning environment. Consistent with the belief that disruptive behavior can interrupt the learning of others, behavior which fits the University’s definition of disruptive behavior will not be tolerated.
Human dignity: The University has formulated a policy on human rights which is intended to provide a learning environment which recognizes individual worth. It is expected in this class that no Professional should need reminding, but the policy is there for your consideration. The activities of this class will be conducted in both the spirit and the letter of that policy.
XI. Attendance policy: Students are expected to be at the school site the prescribed number of hours each week, to schedule and attend conferences with collaborating teaches and university supervisor, and to attend and participate in all scheduled seminars. Student teachers cannot miss school or change their schedules without advanced permission of the collaborating teacher.
XII. Course outline and schedule of assignments: Attached
XIII. References and bibliography: Because of the diverse
nature of the placements for students enrolled in this course, a single
bibliography is not appropriate. An excellent bibliography is included
in each of the chapters of the required textbook. In addition, university
faculty and school personnel can suggest references particular to each
student’s needs and interests.
