Teacher Work Sample/edTPA

This assignment will assess the candidate’s impact on student learning during his/her pre-service teaching experience. The components of the Teacher Work Sample (TWS)/edTPA are important and normal aspects of the work all teachers do. Each component of the TWS/edTPA has been aligned to ONU’s Conceptual Framework, as well as to the Illinois, INTASC, and NCATE standards (see rubric). Each phase of the TWS/edTPA will be completed in consultation with both the cooperating teacher and the university supervisor, and the Project Checklist will serve as documentation and a guide for the student teacher throughout the experience. The final teacher work sample must be approved by the university supervisor prior to program completion.
