The student teacher will establish goals for continued growth and development during the second half of the semester at the mid-semester conference with the mentor teacher and university supervisor. The Penn State Teacher Education Performance Framework and Performance-Based Assessment are used as the bases for setting goals. Progress towards fulfillment of these goals will be reviewed and discussed at the final conference with the mentor teacher and university supervisor.

Students are asked to provide their goals and possible strategies for each of the four domains of the Penn State Teacher Education Performance Framework:

  1. Domain A: Planning and Preparing for Student Learning;
  2. Domain B: Teaching;
  3. Domain C: Analyzing Student Learning and Inquiring into Teaching; and
  4. Domain D: Fulfilling Professional Responsibilities.

The student also signs and dates the form.
