Student Teaching Portfolio

As part of the student-teaching experience, candidates are required to assemble and submit to the
School of Education faculty a student-teaching portfolio that reflects growth as a teacher
candidate as well as the student teaching field experience. The portfolio documents the teacher
candidates experiences and is an important reflective tool. It consists of general assignments and
assignments specific to specializations. The portfolio should document a variety of teaching
strategies; incorporate instructional, information and presentation technology; demonstrate the
development of pupils critical and creative thinking skills; include differentiation and
responsiveness to diversity; apply theory to classroom practice; and show involvement of the
teacher candidate in the school and community and with families. The portfolio should be well
organized, have a professional appearance, and be free of grammatical errors. All teacher
candidates should be aware that although the portfolio submission date varies it usually falls
within the last two weeks of the student teaching experience. The actual submission date for
portfolios will be announced no later than the beginning of the second placement of student
teaching.
The portfolio should include:

a table of contents,
clearly delineated sections, organized by the 5 West Virginia Professional Teaching Standards,

the assignments/artifacts listed below, and

a reflection for each assignment/artifact selected for inclusion in the portfolio.
