Allocate at least 3 hours in the field to support this field experience.
Observe your mentor teacher providing instruction on a social studies concept. During the observation, take note of instruction and assessment practices that promote positive relationships and supportive interactions as the foundation of the instructional delivery. In addition, observe how other content areas are integrated into social studies instruction, and how the cross-curricular instruction enhances student learning of social studies concepts.
Provide examples from your observations of cross-curricular instruction and the effect this had on student learning. How will you apply what you have learned to future instructional planning?
Use any remaining field experience hours to assist the teacher in providing instruction and support to the class.
