Hey Education Students! Registration for Fall 2018 is fast approaching. Check out this course opportunity offered through the St. Kate’s English Department. This is a tremendous opportunity to gain experience in teaching ESL.
Congratulations to Dr. Kate Kelly who’s recent article, “Data is Extremely Useful!” Preservice Teachers Growth in Literacy Assessment and Instruction, has been published in the Journal of Scholastic Inquiry: Special Edition Fall 2017, Volume 8, Issue 1 (link opens article).
Using a case study framework, Dr. Kelly studied the confidence and proficiency of preservice teachers (PTs) in the area of literacy assessment and instruction. The mixed methods study was conducted in a U.S. university literacy methods course, taught both on campus and at a partner K-6 elementary school. Through the Case Study Report, the culminating signature assignment of the course, PTs develop and use assessment tools to measure student learning, organize literacy instruction with attention to the diverse strengths, needs, and interests of students, and work collaboratively and productively in an elementary school setting. Analysis of survey and assessment results indicate that preservice teachers feel more prepared for the realities of assessment and instruction in their future teaching, they better understand literacy development in the context of classroom instruction, and they are more confident in their teaching of literacy as a result of the field-based case study assignment, though they need additional support developing expertise in assessment knowledge.
Thank you Dr. Kelly for your scholarship!
