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.

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.
