Element 3 includes submitting video footage as a part of your proof. At the moment, I’ll focus on a number of issues to consider in terms of creating your movies.
Most of what I wrote in an older put up, Nationwide Boards: Pointers for Movies, continues to be related to the present Nationwide Boards course of. Nevertheless, within the present course of, Element 3 is the one a part of your portfolio that requires video footage. There are nonetheless two movies required and every ought to deal with matters that tie on to your tutorial targets. Your movies will function two separate models and can exhibit proof of the way you interact your college students throughout instruction. Your movies ought to present completely different types of instruction. If one video is an entire class lesson, be certain your second video is a small group or particular person session and NOT one other entire class lesson. You’ll additionally wish to remember to exhibit completely different counseling methods and content material in your movies.
I actually like how the present course of permits candidates to decide on their very own matters and tutorial codecs. Take a while to actually take into consideration the place your program shines and what would be the finest classes to showcase in your elements.
Let’s speak a bit extra about your movies.
Your Video Plan
One of many first issues I spoke about within the older put up continues to be primary on my checklist: Use the written commentary questions and the extent 4 rubric of Element 3 to plan your lesson. Don’t select a random lesson and simply file your self instructing it. Additionally, you’ll wish to take note of the time constraints of the video and just be sure you embody inside that point what the assessor goes to be in search of.
Every time I ready for my movies (in my preliminary certification and once I renewed) I began with what was required within the written commentary. Among the questions are particular to your video comparable to:
“What particular approaches, methods, strategies, or actions did you employ to advertise lively pupil engagement within the lesson? Cite particular examples from the video recording.” – You’ll wish to be certain to point out your college students actively concerned and engaged not directly and never simply sitting and listening to you.
“How was pupil suggestions offered and what was your rationale for offering it on this method?” – Will probably be good to have the ability to discuss with your video for this proof.
“To what extent did you obtain the lesson’s objective or targets? Present proof from the video recording to assist your reply.” – That is the place timing is essential. You’ll need this section of your lesson included within the video to seize this.
Take into consideration these items from the start and resolve the place you’ll present proof throughout your lesson. Once more, use the extent 4 rubric to help you in your planning as nicely.
Give Your self Choices
As you’re making plans to your video recordings, it’s at all times a good suggestion to provide your self time and area for a number of recordings so you’ve choices. After all, your submission will have to be on a set day and time as you can’t piece collectively your video from completely different days. An thought is to show and file movies of your lesson (for instance) in your entire third grade lessons.
As you educate the lesson, you should have the chance to see what works and what doesn’t. Hopefully, by the point you’re recording your third or fourth video, you’ll get precisely what you want. I’m positive you already know like I do, completely different lessons provide you with quite a lot of outcomes, so giving your self a couple of to select from might be helpful.
Moreover, if potential, begin recording your movies earlier than the spring. Give your self time to start out over again if crucial with out being pressed for time. Hopefully you gained’t want a “do over,” however you may breathe a lot simpler if you find yourself in that state of affairs in early February as a substitute of late March.
Working Round Permissions and Together with Fairness
Although you’ll do your finest to get as a lot of your pupil’s permission types again to your recording, it’s potential it’s possible you’ll not obtain 100% of them. You’ll nonetheless embody the complete class in your recording, however it would be best to prepare seating throughout your video in order that college students with out permission are seated behind the digital camera. Additionally, you will must needless to say these college students shouldn’t be recorded in any manner throughout the lesson, so watch out when choosing college students to talk or reply questions.
Moreover, make it possible for your assessor is ready to see how you determine fairness and equity in your faculty counseling program. Hopefully that is already one thing you’re doing often, but when not, this course of is an effective time to evaluate your self and make any crucial enhancements.
Be aware of exhibiting variety along with your supplies and ensure your assessor sees quite a lot of college students throughout your lesson as a lot as you’re able. This consists of gender, race, and distinctive youngsters whether or not gifted, exhausting of listening to, or developmentally delayed. Don’t name on the identical college students to reply questions. If a pupil has issue, it gives you a chance to shine as you exhibit the way you make tutorial changes.
The Element 3 rubric for degree 4 states: “The LEVEL 4 efficiency offers clear, constant, and convincing proof that the counselor is ready to set up a secure, truthful, equitable, and difficult surroundings that fosters the lively engagement of scholars with the counselor and with one another in sharing concepts and in exploring important educational, profession, and/or social/emotional matters.”
Similar to I discussed in my final put up about Planning for Element 2, the important thing phrases are clear, constant, and convincing. Give attention to assembly the extent 4 rubric necessities. Use the rubric as your information as you intend the teachings you’ll educate and file for this part. You’ve received this!
