same with Beginning Teaching
Guiding Question
There is strong evidence in relative literature that assistance for novice teachers positively impacts instructional practices, classroom management, lesson planning, and ultimately, student achievement and teacher commitment and retention (LoCascio, Smeaton, & Waters, 2016).

Question: What is a Teacher Work Sample?

Answer: Reflective documentation of a unit of instruction

There are

A Teacher Work Sample is an exhibit of teaching performance,
such as an instructional unit,that provides direct evidence of a teacher’s
ability to:
1. Analyze student data and assessments to determine learning needs
2. Design and develop standards-based instruction that meets student needs
3. Assess student learning prior to and during instruction and at the end of the unit
4. Reflect on the teaching and learning process and identify ways to grow and develop

University Based Support shouldn't be chore
What are novice teachers
perceptions of the value
of university-based support?

It’s all about:

Paying attention to how you plan
Assessing student learning
Analyzing your results
Reflecting on your practice

but something that matters to YOU!
and the connection

Beginning Educator Assistance Program (BEAP)

Dr. Jacqueline Asberry, Ph.D.

Post Internship Seminar
May 4, 2018


An analysis of the literature suggested that there are numerous factors contributing to beginning teacher’s
development of pedagogical knowledge and skills. However, lesson planning and, instructional strategies
and classroom management were areas that perceived as important by scholars and challenging by
beginning teachers.

Top 5 Concerns of New Teachers

1. Classroom arrangement and management

2. Curriculum planning
and pacing

3. Establishing a grading system that’s fair

4. Parent conferences

5. Personal sanity

Seasoned educators and the public have high expectations of beginning teachers,
often expecting them to perform at the level of a veteran. Consequently, first-year teachers
feel overwhelmed and isolated (Johnson, 2016).

The TWS includes seven components, which you will use as an outline to plan and
teach a unit during placement one of your internship:

1. Contextual Factors
2. Learning Goals
3. Assessment Plan
4. Design for Instruction
5. Instructional Decision Making
6. Analysis of Student Learning
7. Evaluation and Reflection

Theoretical Framework

Social Cognitive Theory (Bandura, 1977)

SCT emphasize that learning occurs in a social context and
that much of what is learned is gained through observing others. Novice teachers observe veteran teachers, beginning teachers will learn from their observations.

Socio-Cultural Theory (Vygotsky, 1978)

Vygotsky believed everything is learned on two levels. First, on the social level, and later, on the individual level.

The Adult Learning Theory (Knowles, 1980)

University based support programs designed to improve pedagogy focus on andragogy, which is the method or practice of helping adults learn.

Best Practices

From the findings, the best practices framework includes engaged contributors who organized and provided teacher induction activities.

The four engaged contributors are the local district, professional association, State Department of Education, and teacher education programs.

Each contributor plays a significant role in preparing, supporting, and developing novice teachers best practices imply that educational policymakers must move beyond the traditional one-to-one mentoring model.


Research shows that a highly qualified teacher workforce-composed of skilled, knowledgeable, culturally astute, and compassionate novice and veteran educators-is the single greatest leverage point for assuring that all students achieve at their highest level ( Berry, 2004).
Summary Statement

Teachers are not finished products when they complete a teacher preparation program. (National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future, 2003).

Ongoing support
Place to network with other novice teachers
An arena to engage in creative problem solving


The result can be more reflective, confident, and qualified teachers who are able to inspire and teach not only their students but also the colleagues around them.

Literature Review

About Me

Classroom management is often noted as one of the most influential factors in determining success for first-year teachers and as the most influential factor in students‘ academic success (Marzano & Marzano, 2003).

Novice teachers must be able to plan and deliver a set of learning opportunities that offer access to essential conceptions and skills for diverse learners (Choy, Wong, & Lim, 2013).

Beginning teachers must connect their content knowledge with their knowledge of how students learn in order to instruct in a manner that is responsive to students’ thinking (Feiman-Nemser, 2001).
My immediate family consist of myself and my two daughters. We've struggled. But we've learn to take care of each other and do what has to been done so that our family is at peace.
I value a lot of things:
fairness above all else
strong work ethnic
respect for others
hard work pays off
learning is a priority
humor is essential
I fit well in the higher education
setting as it is structure and fits my personality, values and beliefs.
Beginning Educator Assistance Program (BEAP)

A third of beginning teachers quit within their first three years of teaching on the job.

It’s alarming but true: studies have shown that 35% of teachers leave the profession during the first year. By the end of the fifth year, 50% of teachers have left the field! — From Teachers Helping Teachers, Springfield Public Schools, Springfield, MA
Great schools cannot exist without great teachers and principals. In order to accelerate student performance states must enact policies and procedures that attract, recruit, retain, develop, compensate, and promote the best possible talent in our classrooms (Ingersoll, 2012).
