Physical Education edTPA Online Preparation Guide

$52.95 CAD


Product Format
    edTPA Physical Education, a teacher performance assessment tool that appraises teaching quality and effectiveness, is now used in 41 states and in Washington, D.C. In a growing number of states (17 as of 2019), it is now a requirement that preservice physical educators pass the edTPA Physical Education (PE) assessment in order to become certified to teach in K-12 schools.

    This assessment is challenging for PETE students, but now preservice physical educators have a resource to help them prepare. A new web study guide, the Physical Education edTPA Online Preparation Guide, will help them understand the requirements of the PE edTPA, apply the components of edTPA to the unique discipline of physical education, and use their knowledge and skills to successfully complete the edTPA during their student teaching.

    This handy resource offers practical, step-by-step instructions for preparing for and passing the edTPA—instructions written by a former certified edTPA scorer and assisted by students who have passed the assessment. It also will enable PETE instructors to increase the edTPA passing rate of their students by helping them understand the assessment requirements, align their course outcomes and activities with those requirements, and incorporate assessments that are in sync with edTPA scoring. The guide includes many examples for instructors to effectively use the material and offers them support as they help their students prepare to pass the assessment.

    A key feature of Physical Education edTPA Online Preparation Guide is its videos. This resource offers the following:
    • More than 60 minutes of video, covering how to prepare for each component of the edTPA, utilizing the author’s step-by-step digital workbook approach
    • Two 20-minute videos that serve as exemplars of edTPA Task 2 (instructing and engaging students in learning)
    • Six videos that serve as exemplars of work samples for Task 3 (assessing student learning)
    • One 7-minute video showing a sample cooperating teacher conference
    These videos are invaluable in helping students prepare for the assessment. The clips offer a guided tour of how to pass the edTPA and numerous examples to help students prepare their own videos and written work, which are required to pass the assessment. The digital workbook provides students a checklist that they can use to stay on track as they prepare for the edTPA.

    In addition to the videos and digital workbook, the authors provide a wealth of tips to guide students past common roadblocks to passing the edTPA Physical Education assessment.

    The Physical Education edTPA Online Preparation Guide is a low-cost, practical, and highly valuable tool for students and instructors alike. Students who use the guide will gain the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to pass the assessment and move on to fruitful careers as physical educators.
