This VFE Assignment is designed to enhance your understanding of working within an inclusive classroom environment. You gain an understanding of the vital collaborative role educators play when working in a co-teaching environment.
For this Assignment, you observe an educator conducting a science lesson in an inclusive classroom environment. During this lesson, you observe and find evidence of teaching effectiveness and professional practice when working in a co-teaching environment.
Review Chapter 7 of the Friend and Cook text as well as the “Co-Teaching Planning Template” document found in the Learning Resources for Week 4 and consider the various strategies for co-teaching.
Review the “Virtual Field ExperienceTM Video Analysis Sheet” document in the Week 4 Learning Resources. Complete the sheet while viewing the media by following the directions on the sheet to complete this assignment.
View the media “Virtual Field ExperienceTM: Science Lesson (Inclusion Classroom),” and read the “Virtual Field ExperienceTM: Lesson Plan” document. As you observe and listen to the professional dialogue, focus on the professional practice and teaching effectiveness of the educator.
Use the “Virtual Field ExperienceTM Video Analysis Sheet” document to take anecdotal notes and gather evidence (Note: Second column in the “Virtual Field ExperienceTM Video Analysis Sheet”) to guide you as you listen for professional dialogue and find evidence for standards based competencies.
Review the “Co-Teaching Planning Template” document and consider how you might modify the lesson viewed to include an effective co-teaching strategy.
Complete the “Virtual Field ExperienceTM Video Analysis Sheet” document by analyzing the educator’s professional practice and teaching effectiveness. Support your analysis with specific evidence from the media.

How do you support oral and written language development through independent reading materials?
How do you motivate and provide daily opportunities for self-selected reading along with opportunities for sharing?
In addition, include a brief description of how this plan might work in an online environment
Submit your “Virtual Field Experience Video Analysis Sheet” document and the co-teaching plan.
