Connecting Teaching and Learning: A Handbook for Teacher Educators on Teacher Work Sample Methodology.
Girod, Gerald R., Ed.
This handbook shares methodologies for guiding teacher preparation and licensing. It provides a rationale for the inclusion of teacher work sample methodology in preparation and licensing programs, describes how student learning is the central concept within teacher work samples, explains how to teach students and teachers about work samples, and supports teacher educators who need to work with their colleagues in reviewing, adapting/adopting, and implementing the methodology. The 17 chapters are: (1) "Connecting Teaching and Learning: An Introduction to Teacher Work Sample Methodology" (H. Del Schalock and David Myton); (2) "Teacher Work Sample Methodology with a Standards Orientation" (H. Del Schalock); (3) "Assessing Teacher Work Samples" (Mark D. Schalock); (4) "Values Offered by Teacher Work Sample Methodology" (Gerald R. Girod, Mary Mangan Reynolds, Helen E. Woods, and H. Del Schalock); (5) "An Overview of Teacher Work Sample Methodology" (Gerald R. Girod); (6) "Concepts and Skills Necessary To Plan a Teacher Work Sample" (Gerald R. Girod); (7) "Adapting Teacher Work Sample Plans and Instruction to Pupils' Needs" (Elizabeth A. Dohrn); (8) "Instructional Strategies in a Teacher Work Sample" (Gerald R. Girod); (9) "Teaching the Necessary Assessment Concepts and Skills for a Teacher Work Sample" (Gerald R. Girod and Robert Ayres); (10) "Summary, Interpretation, and Reflection in a Teacher Work Sample" (Susan Nelson Wood); (11) "Practice and Feedback for Those Preparing a Teacher Work Sample" (Gerald R. Girod); (12) "Successfully Supervising Students Implementing Teacher Work Samples" (E. Michelle Pardew); (13) "Structuring Preparation Programs To Accommodate Teacher Work Sample Methodology" (Meredith M. Brodsky); (14) "Does TWSM Work?" (Gerald R. Girod and Mark D. Schalock); (15) "Teacher Work Sample Methodology in Early Childhood and Elementary Preparation Programs: A Case Study" (David M. A.

Engle); and (17) "Teacher Work Sample Methodology in Special Education Preparation: A Case Study" (Elizabeth A. Dohrn).
