Use your three lesson plan from edTPA 1 with any needed revisions:
1- Create a 1 paragraph summary of a “focus” student who struggles with at least 1 skill in school. What does your focus student do well and what do they struggle with? What are their likes and dislikes? You can base this off of someone you know or create your own. Use the example with “Tony” below.
2-“Measure” your focus student on two different skills throughout your lessons. How will you integrate the progress monitoring into your daily lessons? Be very specific and descriptive.
3-Create a chart/graph/table/etc. with at least one week of fictitious data for at least two different skills being assessed. Have the student making improvements in one area and remaining stagnant in the other. For example, Johnny is working on increasing his daily pizza intake (he is improving in this area), and reading comprehension (based on daily assessments, he is showing no growth in this area). See example table below.
4-Based on the data that suggests an improving and a stagnating skill, address how are you will adjust instruction to address both of the areas for the focus learner while continuing to support the class as a whole?
5-Write feedback that you could share with the focus learner. Be specific when talking about both skills, things done well and ways to make improvements.
Utilize APA guidelines including: Times New Roman, 12 point font, with double spacing
Example of Tony: Tony has been identified with a learning disability in reading comprehension and written expression. Tony is a more willing reader when it is about one of his hobbies such as sports or animals but in general, he attempts to avoid reading. He currently comprehends about three grade levels below his current grade. For writing, Tony’s spelling and use of capitalization is age appropriate but he has difficulty forming meaningful sentences beyond the simplest of sentences, such as, “I like basketball.” Tony’s excitement towards Social Studies comes and goes depending on the content and what he is asked to do in the course. He really likes PE and he is also into history, particularly World War I and II. Tony’s behavior in the classroom is dependent on his interest in the topic/activity. When not interested, Tony will frequently get out of his seat, tease other students in his vicinity, or put his head down to sleep.
Keep in mind that this is about as simple as a table gets. You can make yours much better and include a simple line graph
