TPA Submission Guidelines for DVD Spring by HC12092917540


									                   Guidelines to Submit TPA to CU School of Education
You will submit your TPA on a DVD to your supervisor, using the guidelines provided below. The School of
Education will retain your TPA DVD in its archives. We appreciate your signing a release form that allows
us to share your TPA with program faculty/instructors. Just as you benefitted from seeing exemplars of
student work (e.g., essays or lab reports, etc.), the teacher education faculty benefit from reading together
examples of your work in the student teaching semester.

                             Guidelines to Prepare PDF File of TPA

STEP 1: Protecting Confidentiality: Before you prepare your final PDF document for submission, review
your entire document for identifiers.

Find and Replace Names and General References for:

1) You

2) Your Cooperating Teacher(s)

3) Your students

4) Your School

5) Your School District/ Town/ County/ State

6) You may use either “pseudonyms or general references (e.g., “the district”) for your school, district, or
   cooperating teacher. You may use either pseudonyms or first names only for students. Do this in all
   commentaries, and mask or remove names that could identify people or institutions from all materials
   submitted, including lesson plans” (Handbook, pg. 8).

Step 2: Preparing PDFs.

Your work will be submitted as five folders including files described below.

For each PDF, use the file naming protocol provided. Note this is the same file naming protocol as that
found in the TPA handbook.

Note: XX should be replaced with your TPA content Type (EL=Elementary literacy, EM=Elementary
math, ELA=Secondary English Language Arts, HSS=Secondary History/Social Studies, MTH=Secondary
Mathematics, PA=K-12 Music Performing Arts, SCI=Secondary Science, and WL=Secondary World
Language. All documents should be in the .PDF format.
