(loha Mentor Teachers,
Than0 you for your wor0 with our teacher candidates enrolled in the College of Education Teacher
Education Program. I a**reciate the maEor role our mentor teachers assume in the *re*aring
*rofessional educators for their wor0 with children and their families.
(ll of our teacher candidates enroll in ITE &#', Performing (rts E)*ression, +",, which focuses on
integrating the *erforming arts -dance, drama and music. throughout the elementary curriculum.
Most of our teacher candidates are wor0ing in *u3lic school settings where the classroom teacher is
re1uired to *ro/ide consistent se1uential instruction and e)*eriences in the fine arts. In some
settings our candidates ha/e the o**ortunity to colla3orate with *erforming arts s*ecialists to
de/elo* arts lessons that are lin0ed to content across the curriculum.
4ne area that we focus on is integrating the arts across the curriculum to 3uild on and reinforce
conce*ts that are im*ortant in other disci*lines. He 3elie/e that *erforming arts e)*eriences
*ro/ide tangi3le e/idence of student learning and achie/ement and are alternati/e forms of student
assessment that demonstrate what students 0now, are a3le to do and care a3out.
He *ractice the artistic *rocesses of creating, *erforming, and res*onding. He 0now that ha/ing
e)*eriences in the arts also re1uires some time to reflect on these e)*eriences in order to create
new connections and new ways of 0nowing.
4he infor!tion printe. on the #!c1 of this p!ge !rticu$!tes the fie$. coponent of our course.
4his !ssignent re9uires our te!cher c!n.i.!tes to .eve$op !n. ip$eent ! unit p$!n in the
perforing !rts.
He also 3elie/e that seeing what students are really ca*a3le of doing re1uires them to create all of
the wor0 themsel/es. This eliminates using any ty*e of adult created scri*t and *ro/ides a more
authentic assessment tool that focuses on the child and his8her a3ility to communicate through the
arts.
It is my e)*ectation that the teacher candidates will discuss their ideas with you and share their unit
*lans with you 3efore im*lementation of the lessons.
Please contact me if you ha/e any 1uestions or concerns.

( 6tudent Performance -tal0ing a3out or writing a3out the *erformance is one lesson.
9eflection of your e)*erience teaching the unit that includes what you learned a3out yourself,
what learned a3out your students, what you learned a3out teaching, and how you would
im*ro/e the lessons the ne)t time you teach.
Photogra*hs of the students at wor0.
These lessons and the classroom *erformance may reinforce themes and o3Eecti/es that are
already *art of the curriculum and are de/elo*ed in colla3oration with your mentor teacher.
These lessons will include o**ortunities for students to create, *erform and res*ond e)*eriences in
dance, drama or music. The theme for the unit may also 3uild u*on a math or literacy conce*t
taught for other courses this semester.
Iou may choose to team with one other *eer wor0ing at the same grade le/el to de/elo* the unit
together to create a rich art *rocess and high 1uality student *roducts.
