Work Sample Overview
Willamette University MAT students will be responsible for preparing two work samples, each a unit of related lessons that should be part of the school's regular curriculum. One work sample will be completed during the November practicum experience and one work sample will be completed during spring semester student teaching. Each of the two work samples must be two to five weeks long and include student goals and objectives, lesson plans, and pre- and post-assessments of students' performance, as well as analyses of their learning gains. These work samples fulfill a requirement of Oregon's Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) regulations for licensure.
