Allocate at least 2 hours in the field to support this field experience.
Differentiation is important to help all students succeed. It is especially important when designing interventions for students who are below grade level or are not meeting a learning goal. You must take into consideration each student’s needs and learning styles to implement a successful intervention strategy.
Using the knowledge gained from the observation and discussion with your mentor teacher in Topic 4, research, develop, and implement an intervention strategy to use with one student in your field experience classroom. Begin by having your mentor teacher guide you in selecting a student that would benefit from additional support, then use research to develop an intervention strategy to meet the student’s needs. Review your strategy with your mentor teacher, make any necessary revisions, and implement the intervention. Afterward, discuss the implementation and its outcome with your mentor teacher.
Spend any remaining field experience hours observing and assisting the teacher in providing instruction and support to the class.
In 250-500 words, summarize and reflect upon your experience creating and implementing the intervention.
Include the following:
A description of the intervention.
The reason the intervention was necessary, including any formal or informal data that supported this conclusion.
The data that was analyzed to support the selected intervention.
The outcome of the intervention, including informal observations and any informal data obtained to measure that outcome.
A synopsis of your discussion with your mentor teacher regarding the implementation and outcome of the intervention. What might you do differently next time? How will you use this in your future practice?
