Week 8 Alternate Tutoring Project
For this assignment you are using information that you obtained from the teacher interview, the interest inventories, and the BPST assessment to set tutoring goals for your tutee. When analyzing the BPST, you should focus on the first area of the assessment that challenged your tutee.
In other words, focus on gaps in letter names and sounds before moving onto reading words. Also, focus on short vowel words before moving onto long vowel words.
Part I. Video Assessment Data
In the video you will meet Liam. You will get to know her briefly during the interview questions and then the tutor will administer the BPST (Basic Phonics Skills Test). Print out the score sheet for the Basic Phonics Skills Test (BPST) ahead of time so that you can fill out the response sheet as you are watching the video.
Liam BPST Video
Analyze assessment results to determine strengths and needs. Select a need and create a 1-2 goals to focus on for the three lessons you will write. These goals should be very specific. You will keep these same goals for each lesson.
Use the information obtained in the video to complete the Tutee Background Information and Action Plan form. The completed form along with a copy of the assessment results are due in Week 5. You can leave the Interview with the Teacher section blank.
Part II. Plan
Prepare three lesson plans for the student based on the goals you selected using the lesson plan template provided. In the reflection section, reflect on why you selected the strategies in your lesson, why do you think they will be effective? Also, reflect on potential challenges that may come up during the lesson and what you might do to navigate those challenges.
Part III. Tutoring Project Report
In a 2-4 page paper (essay format required) describe your experience analyzing data and planning lessons. Include the following:
How did you determine the goals for your tutee?
What CCSS standards were the focus of your lessons?
What teaching strategies and curriculum materials were used to help build student understanding of the concept(s) during your lessons? Why did you select those strategies and materials?
What potential challenges/obstacles could arise if you taught the lessons as planned?
What next steps would you recommend for Liam?
Analysis and Reflection
What were your successes and challenges in creating lessons based on specific goals?
What did you learn about literacy instruction?
What did you learn about yourself as an educator throughout this process?
