       Course Description:
              This course aims to help candidates refine their understandings of curriculum theory as it
              applies to exercise, wellness, outdoor, and sport education. It helps teacher candidates
              develop program planning and instruction skills, teaching and organizational strategies, and
              leadership skills necessary for effective leadership in secondary physical education settings.
              Prior to registration, the student must complete and submit an AISD criminal background

IV.   Course Assignments, Requirements, & Evaluation (Student Outcomes
                   Measured):
          Just like many teaching contracts, grades in this course will be competitive, subjective, and
          comparative - punctuality & participation in all class meetings is essential. Initiative,
          leadership, professional language/communication, risk-taking, and responsibility will all be
          factored into your overall evaluation. There are no excuses for demonstrating unprofessional
          teacher dispositions.

      There are 6 assignments with 500 points possible:

      Assignment 1 - Student Data Forms: It is mandatory that each candidate completes a student
          data form via Livetext and updates their information every semester. The candidate will not be
          given the opportunity to participate in the teaching portion of the course until this form has
          been completed.

      Assignment 2 - Mentor Networking Project: Part of the unit’s conceptual framework deals with
          “Field Experiences” that aim to help candidates 1) develop observation skills, 2) establish
          relationships with teaching professionals, 3) practice good role modeling, 4) demonstrate
          leadership skills, and 5) practice life-long learning. The candidate will seek out a mentor who
          1) exhibits strong leadership, 2) shares a similar teaching and learning philosophy/vision, and
          3) is willing to observe, critique, and counsel pre-service teacher candidates (See attachment
          #1). This process must begin early in the program (i.e. KINE 1215) and expand/evolve
          throughout pedagogy coursework (i.e. KINE 2301  KINE 3304  EDML 4300  KINE
          4320  KINE 4321  EDUC 4352  KINE 4647 (Residency). Note: Establishing a
          mentor(s) early on in the program promises candidates a challenging, fruitful, and
          encapsulating residency experience. Candidates must keep a journal/log of their experiences
          via livetext and organize it for exhibition and assessment in their livetext program portfolio
          (See Milestone Program Evaluations in Livetext). The process and experiences in the public
          schools must be logged, in logical sequence, and documented over time. A 2-page self-
          reflection document of your observation and teaching experiences must also be exhibited in
          Livetext for evaluation (See Livetext Template sent from instructor). [Due 4/14] (100 pts)

      Assignment 3 - Mid-Term Exam: A written exam will be administered midway throughout the
          semester negotiating pedagogy and content material from all lectures, readings, and labs. [Test
          Scheduled for 3/9] (100 pts)

      Assignment 4 - Unit Plan: Students will design and develop a Unit/Lesson Plan based on the
          curricular models presented in class and exhibited from the Livetext template sent from the
          instructor (the unit plan will ultimately go in your Livetext program portfolio). Evaluation of
          the unit plan is based on the “Curriculum Planning Rubric” (See attachment #2). [Due 3/21]
          (100 pts)

      Assignment 5 - Teaching Lesson: Each student will teach a single 20-minute lesson from their
          Unit/Curriculum plan on a scheduled date in the course (see sign up sheet for scheduling
          presentations). Lesson plans must be complete and turned in at the time of facilitation (bring
          3 copies). In order to be assessed on this assignment you must create a document containing
          your lesson plan in Livetext and send it to the instructor for “review” immediately after you
          have presented your lesson. You must title the document “4320 - Lesson Plan”. (See
          Evaluation of Instruction Scoring Rubric [See attachment #3] for grading criteria). (100 pts)

          Also, make sure you prepare and submit an equipment list at least a week in advance
          outlining all necessary items you are using for your teaching. Turn this list into “John”
          at the equipment desk across from the PEB pool (See and print “Equipment List” -
          Attachment #4).
Assignment 5+ - Peer Teaching Assessment: Each candidate will assess a peer during a teaching
lab lesson (See Evaluation of Instruction Scoring Rubric [See attachment #3] for grading criteria).
You will be graded on your ability to observe the strengths and weaknesses of the lesson observed
and communicate constructive criticism as it pertains to the principles and teaching theory
discussed in class. You will assess your peer who directly precedes you in the progression of sign-
up teachings (10 pts)

Assignment 6 - Self-Evaluation:
            “Nothing strengthens the judgment and quickens the conscience like individual responsibility”
                                                                        -Elizabeth Cady Stanton

    Initiative, preparation, and creativity are among the most heavily emphasized and reflected
    values for self-assessment in this course. Each student will take full responsibility in assessing
    his or her learning, effort, contribution, and behavior (See attachment #5) - Presented During
    Finals Week (100 pts)
      Directions: Create your own accountability schedule and explain your goals, strengths, & weaknesses for the
                  class. Also, develop a self-assessment strategy that helps you stay accountable for meeting those
                  goals… (e.g., In order to give myself an A in this class I’m going to have to do what? 1,2,3,etc., or,
                  Twice a week, etc). Imagine as though you are establishing grading criteria for your own students in
                  your own class. Establish clear boundaries between grades (e.g., What does a “B”, “C”, “D”, & “F”
                  student in this class look like to you). Higher grades should reflect far beyond what is expected. In
                  reading and explaining your criteria the objectives and assessment strategy should illustrate exactly
                  what will determine the outcome. An oral and written self-evaluation of the student’s performance in
                  the course will be assessed using either the Self-Evaluation Scoring Rubric Attachment or a
                  personalized variation of the rubric designed by the student & approved by instructor…


Teacher Dispositions: The purpose of the dispositions assessment is to identify and document the
   candidate's performance, dispositions, and respond-ability at program gates (See attachment
   #6). It measures a candidate’s ability to establish helping relationships in learning situations
   and conducts themselves professionally. It also brings awareness to dispositional problems
   early on in the program and creates a platform for program intervention. The assessment will
   monitor changes in the candidate's performance and attitude over time. The consistency of
   administering this rubric in aggregate is evidence that the candidate possess, or not, the values,
   motives, and enthusiasm representative of effective and functional leadership. Clarity of
   reports furnishes unit conversations around data directly related to candidate performance and
   not just anecdotal inferences.

    An ongoing assessment system should provide regular and comprehensive data on program
    quality and candidate performance at each stage of the program. Each teacher candidate will
    be assessed on their dispositions at the end of respective pedagogy core course(s) [KINE 2301,
    3304, and 4321]. If the candidate is evaluated "unacceptable" across any of the dispositions,
    record of the dispositions rubric must be shared with the department chair and/or program
    coordinator. Consistent evaluations of "unacceptable" will be discussed with the candidate at
    program transition points resulting in a possible "non-recommendation" of continuing along
    the teacher licensure process.


There are 500 points possible in the course and your total earned points are based on the following
grading scale: A=500-450, B=449-400, C=399-350, D=349-300, F=299 or less
V.   Course Policies
             Attendance Policy: Due to the heavy emphasis on group interaction and experiential
             pedagogy in the course, attendance at all class meetings is mandatory. Even though it
             is my goal and responsibility to motivate and challenge each one of you, it is ultimately
             your responsibility as a competent student teacher to attend meetings, make an
             indisputable effort, master the material, and improve teaching ability. I concord the right
             to lower final grades by one letter grade for every absence during the semester.

             Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA): If you are a student who requires
             accommodations in compliance with the ADA, please consult with me at the beginning of
             the semester. As a faculty member, I am required by law to provide “reasonable
             accommodation” to students with disabilities, so as not to discriminate on the basis of that
             disability. Your responsibility is to inform me of the disability at the beginning of the
             semester and provide me with documentation authorizing the specific accommodation.
             Student services at UTA include the Office for Students with Disabilities (located in the
             lower level of the University Center), which is responsible for verifying and implementing
             accommodations to ensure equal opportunity in all programs and activities.

             Student Support Services: The University supports a variety of student success
             programs to help you connect with the University and achieve academic success. They
             include learning assistance, developmental education, advising and mentoring, admission
             and transition, as well as federally funded programs. Students requiring assistance
             academically, personally, or socially should contact the Office of Student Success
             Programs at (817) 272-6107 for more information and appropriate referrals.

             Academic Honesty: Academic dishonesty is a unacceptable mode of conduct and will
             not be tolerated in any form at the University of Texas at Arlington. All persons involved
             in academic dishonesty will be disciplined in accordance with University regulations and
             procedures. Discipline may include suspension or expulsion from the University.
             “Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, cheating, plagiarism, collusion, the
             submission for credit of any work or materials that are attributable in whole or in part to
             another person, taking an examination for another person, any act designed to give unfair
             advantage to a student or the attempt to commit such acts.” (Regents’ Rules and
             Regulations, Part One, Chapter VI, Section 3, Subsection 3.2., Subdivision 3.22).
