3. Endorsement Requirements
If you are working on an endorsement (READING SPECIALIST, SPECIAL EDUCATION or EARLY CHILDHOOD) the second section of your portfolio must contain the following:
* If your endorsement is part of your master's degree and is completed at the same time, you may complete the portfolio requirements with the master's
* If your endorsement is added on to your master's degree or is not completed at the same time, you must complete and present the portfolio requirements separately.
A. Three artifacts from any class within the endorsement program that document your ability to work with K-12 students and their influence on student learning in the area of endorsement.
B. A reflection on the practicum/internship experience for the endorsement.
C. A philosophy statement for that endorsement program.
D. A summary and reflection of your endorsement work over what you have learned.
E. Evidence of working with or reflecting on working in diverse settings.
F. Evidence of the use of technology (could be a list of programs you use for teaching/assessment and curricular design) or examples.
G. Evidence of research, data collection and analysis in the classroom. This could be an artifact or a statement of how you do this.
These artifacts may be placed in a notebook or binder. Before your endorsement will be issued, you must meet with Lyn Forester (email@example.com) or
send your mini-portfolio for the endorsement area (Lyn Forester; Doane College; 1014; Crete, NE 68333).
