- I am seeking EA science certification for 2002-2003. Does anyone
know if there is a complete scoring guide available? Or do we just
use the info provided in the portfolio instructions.
Also, any ideas for videotaping the data analysis lesson...is it
better to videotape a class discussion or small group discussions? I
feel my students will be more comfortable with the camera in one
place taping a class discussion verses the camera moving around
and "getting in their face" to tape small group discussions.
However, I am concerned that leaving the camera in one place (which
will have to be farther away to capture the entire class) will result
in a lower score. Any suggestions/ideas?
- Hello Jada,
I left the camera in one place when taping a whole class and I got a 3. something. I was a three year ago candidate and I had to do large and small group videos...the small group taping got a 2.something. I feel that it scored lower because you could not hear the students clearly enough. I was attempting to teach naturally and sometimes leaned over the students at the lab table which muffled the sound. Of course I discussed what each student was saying as well as the work in the written portion, but I feel that clearity is an issue. Just a few thoughts...
