Evaluations are required at midterm and semester end (in accordance with the UW academic calendar).
Mentor teachers submit all signed evaluation forms to the UW Faculty/Consultant.
Midterm evaluations for K-12 art and K-12 music majors are conducted midway through the first 8-week experience and midway through the second 8-week experience. Final evaluations are conducted at the end of the 8-week or 16-week Residency experience (as relevant to the candidate’s WTEP). The forms for midterm and final evaluation include the same criteria for evaluation.
The narrative statement portion of the final evaluation is the letter of recommendation for the student teacher. Mentor teachers may choose to use the form for this narrative/letter or you may choose to attach a more formal letter of reference.
The narrative should include:
Brief description of the context of the setting in which you worked with the student teacher.
Description of the specific classroom responsibilities that the student teacher had and commentary on how well he/she met those responsibilities.
Description of any extra duties in which the student teacher was involved.
Description of the student teacher’s involvement (type and extent) with parents and colleagues.
