  • Darren: 4:00 – 4:03Wordle you for bringing computers. You should have picked up a binder as you walked in. Introduce Kelly. Logistics:BathroomsSign-inECO questions answered toward the end of the presentations.Parking lot Add this to the list of prep work for this presentation & sticky notes
  • 4:03 – 4:08DarrenTonight, you are going to hear a lot of new vocabulary. Some of it is specific to BTSA and the work you are doing here, and some of it has broader application. It can become confusing and I know I need to stop and remind myself that I use these terms every day in my work. So if we say something or use a term that is unclear, stop us and ask. We’ve also made a note taking guide for you to jot down some of these terms as we introduce them. We’ll be discussing where you can find out more information tonight, as well.Meeting the Induction Standards is how you clear your credential. Our students are expected to meet certain standards as they progress through school, the newly credentialed teachers are expected to meet the Induction standards. It is why you’re in BTSA.Using formative assessment, reflecting on and documenting your progress is how you are recommended for your clear credential. You receive the coaching and mentoring to support the clearing of your credential.
  • 4:10 – 4:12DarrenTonight we will explain your responsibilities as a BTSA Induction participant. We’ll also explain the support you have within the program to meet the responsibilities and standards.We are also going to focus on some content of the induction program and make some connections between what you have done in your Teacher preparation program and what you will be doing in BTSA.You’ll notice a Parking Lot space, this is to share (perhaps) unrelated questions you have. As they come up, please write them on a sticky note and put in the Parking Lot. We will periodically answer questions throughout tonight’s meeting. Also, if you are new to this location, there are restrooms located near the entry as well as upstairsBy the way, you’ll notice that we use BTSA and Induction either simultaneously or interchangeably.
  • 4:18 – 4:22Kelly Clear Induction Program is accredited by Commission on Teacher Credentialing CTC to recommend teachers for a clear credential.Just like colleges and Universities are accredited to have credentialing programs, so does SJUSD. That’s one of the reasons for the policies and procedures that the program has established. It’s what we’ve told CCTC that we’re going to do. In an audit, we have to match our actions to the program that was submitted. If not, we could lose our accreditation.Also designed to help you grow as a teacher. Designed for teacher to reflect and assess and accelerate teaching practice to a mature level. SPs mentor teacher, guide PTs through the formative process. Participating teachers collect evidence showing that they meet the Induction Standards and make progress on the California Standards for the Teaching Profession. This is a two year program –you’ll also hear about an acceleration option at the end of the meeting for some participating teachers. It’s called Early Completion and I know that some of you have questions about that. We will explain that at the end so please hold off on those questions.

  • 5:00 – 5:08Darren Please take out the paper copy in your binder that looks similar to this and close your binder. This is a visual representation of the path you’ve been on in your credential work. It shows the work you’ve done in your pre-service work—the standards you’ve worked towards, the teacher preparation expectations TPES (cue Prezi) -- and aligns it to the work you are currently doing in the classroom—as well as the standards guiding your current professional development, the California Standards for the Teaching Profession, or the CSTPs.
