Student Teaching in Music


The edTPA is a teacher performance assessment that is required for initial teacher licensure in Wisconsin and other states.  Students complete the edTPA while student teaching and submit artifacts (lesson plans, videos, sample student work, etc.) and commentaries (on planning, instruction, and assessment) for scoring using rubrics in the edTPA handbooks. The moodle page hosted by Bob Williams provides more information and resources for this.

Student Teaching Final Portfolio

Beginning September 1, 2014, all teacher certification candidates in music must take the Performing Arts edTPA, a teacher performance assessment completed during student teaching. To be certified for licensure, candidates must earn a passing score set by Lawrence's Teacher Education Program. Effective September 1, 2016, candidates must also meet the state of Wisconsin's edTPA score requirements for initial teacher licensure in Wisconsin. Candidates who successfully complete student teaching but do not pass the edTPA may complete degree requirements but not be certified for licensure.
