STUDENT TEACHING EVALUATION OF PERFORMANCE (STEP)


STANDARD 1, PART I

Student Teaching Evaluation of Performance (STEP) is the process for preparing and implementing a unit of instruction.

By understanding the community and school environment and the makeup of the classroom, you will be able to strategically meet the overall needs of your
students. In the first two weeks of student teaching, you should focus on learning about the students you will be working with. You are expected to teach the
unit you are preparing by the end of week 8.

Review the geographic, district, and school demographics of your student teaching classroom. Utilize the district or school website, your cooperating
teacher/mentor, or school administrator for this information. You may also use your state Department of Education website for statistical data on community
and school demographics.

The community was built around a mill industry in the 1950's. The mills closed in the late 1990's. This left many without a means of employment. The community and the
students at the school that I am interning are pretty much stable and generational. Whenever the school has a special event the parents and grandparents of the students
participate. I would say about 70% participate in the school event. I think that this show a lot of community support. The community is a low income community.

 Cite the references used for this information.
The ADM has declined over the past 10 years due mostly to the textile industry closing down in this area. While the unemployment rate soared into the double digits for a couple
of years, the county is rebuilding and has decreased the unemployment rate to just over 6%. However, many families have relocated to find work elsewhere. The rebuilding of
the economy is largely due to the automotive industry. The school system works closely with the local Development Authority as new industries are recruited to the area. There
are four schools (LaFayette Eastside, JP Powell Middle, LaFayette High, and Five Points Elementary) that serve the north end of the county that is mostly rural and includes the
City of LaFayette. These are the schools in the Central Time Zone. There are 6 schools (Bob Harding Shawmut, Fairfax, LaFayette Lanier, Huguley, WF Burns Middle, and Valley
High) that serve other areas including the City of Valley. These schools are located in the Eastern Time Zone. The Career Technical School is located in LaFayette and serves
students from both LaFayette and Valley High Schools. Both the Career Tech Center and the Central Office operate in Central Time.
