Modeled Lesson Protocol


Observation Journal

Note to users: This protocol was originally designed to be used with pre-service teachers who are completing their field practicum (i.e. student teaching). However, the activities described here could easily be adapted for use with in-service teachers in professional learning communities. The term “TCs” is used repeatedly in these documents and refers to teacher candidates, or student teachers.

Lesson Outcomes What type of thinking or reflection is this protocol designed to get teacher candidates to do?

The purpose of this protocol is to help teacher candidates operationalize the way(s) in which a particular pedagogical concept, competency, or strategy can be enacted in actual practice, as an intermediate step before they are tasked with applying it themselves. A modeled lesson allows teacher candidates to observe an exemplary teacher demonstrating a practice (or group of practices) that they are striving to make a part of their teaching. Instructor Preparation What up-front preparation will the instructor need to do to prepare for this protocol?

The course instructor will need to coordinate with the classroom teacher in which the modeled lesson is going to occur in order to ensure that the lesson follows the class’s scope and pacing and meets an identified need of students in the classroom (based on diagnostic and formative assessment data). Steps What is the procedure for completing this protocol?

The course instructor identifies an instructional focus on which to base a modeled lesson that will be delivered to actual K-12 students (e.g. academic feedback, shared reading, modeled writing, checking for understanding) 1. The course instructor coordinates with a classroom teacher at the school site to determine the standard and objective(s) that will be taught in the modeled lesson, the date and time in which the modeled lesson will occur, and the desired learning outcomes of the lesson. 2. The course instructor plans the modeled lesson and reviews it with the classroom teacher prior to implementation. 3. The course instructor defines the roles that the teacher candidates will play during the modeled lesson. For example, what will they be observing for? How will they interact and work with students during the lesson? What role will they play in assessing student learning? 4. The course instructor delivers the lesson to a class of K-12 students while the teacher candidates act as participant-observers. 5. The instructor and teacher candidates return to the iTeach classroom to debrief the observation, pose questions, synthesize new learning, and prepare to enact the concept or skill under investigation in future lessons. *NOTE: This protocol could also be used with a mentor teacher or teacher candidate executing the modeled lesson

Reflection What will teacher candidates be prompted to think about upon the completion of the protocol? What questions will they consider?

Depending on the course instructor’s own comfort level, he/she may invite teacher candidates to give feedback on the lesson and note possible areas of strength or refinement. Teacher candidates should be able to share observations about how the classroom students responded to different elements of the lesson, and the evidence of student learning they were able to collect. TCs should also be encouraged (or prompted) to ask why the instructor made particular instructional
