NJ-edTPA Sessions:

Beginner Handbook and Rubric Deep Dive provides a deep look at edTPA handbooks, rubrics, and expectations for candidates.

Academic Language (Beginner/Advanced) provides a thorough overview of academic language, including the role of academic language in the profession and how it is embedded in edTPA.

Advanced Curriculum Inquiry provides an opportunity to examine valued program outcomes and their relationship to the cycle of effective teaching and edTPA expectations. Program faculty examine where and how the program already provides formative experiences aligned with edTPA and how edTPA contributes to a multiple measures assessment system.

Designing an Instructional Framework for Teacher Candidate Success on edTPA
Candidate success on edTPA is greatly impacted by three key factors: faculty knowledge of the assessment, candidate preparation for the assessment, and support for candidates while they complete their edTPA portfolios. If any of these three factors is deficient, teacher candidates may not experience edTPA success or completion of the assessment may be far more stressful than necessary. Faculty members need to examine their programs in these three key areas to create an instructional framework to help prepare teacher candidates for edTPA success. This strategy was used by Illinois State University to "turn around" their Business Teacher Education (BTE) program. Workshop participants will examine the steps the ISU BTE faculty took to achieve this change and will be given the tools to examine their own programs to develop their own instructional framework for edTPA success.
