The concepts of standards, differentiation and learner-centeredness are key to the development of teachers. Research tells us professional development can no longer be a one-size-fits-all approach. In this module’s application assignment, you will demonstrate your knowledge of standards, differentiation, and learner-centered principles as you plan a standards-based, learner-centered professional development session for new teachers based on the data you collected in the needs assessment (Module 3 Application).
You have a lot of ideas to incorporate in this professional development, so before starting, review all the resources you have available. Look back over the presentations in Modules 1-4 and the learning objects pages. The learning objects pages contain information on learner-centered principles and links to differentiated instruction and professional development websites, including the Learning Forward Standards for Professional Learning.
Also refer back to your Module 3 discussion about Marzano’s nine instructional strategies and the link on the learning objects page. How can you use these strategies as you plan the activities for your professional development? Is the performance objective you composed in the discussion still applicable? Does it need to be revised to reflect your current learning and the needs of the new teachers you surveyed?
Step 1. Use PowerPoint or another slide presentation tool to create a differentiated, learner-centered professional development session as a part of the induction program for new teachers at your school. Your presentation should be 10-15 slides (not including the title and references slides).
Tutorials are available: Digital Learning Connections Resources and Tips.
Step 2. Include the following components in your presentation:
Step 3. Adhere to best practices in developing your presentation. As the professional development designer, you should:
Compose a well-developed reflection on the professional development for new teachers you designed. Use the prompts/questions below to guide description of the paragraphs. Your paper should be 3-5 pages (not including the title and references pages).
Please do NOT copy the prompts. Instead, create a heading for each of them. Your paper will have an introduction, a heading with information for each of the nine topics below, a conclusion, and a references page.
