In addition to 50 multiple choice questions on teaching methods, the TFE requires completion of two constructed-response questions. One constructed-response questions presents a middle school standard and one presents a high school standard (in the subject matter of the test: English, Math, Science; http://www.ets.org/praxis/ca/requirements/
). The constructed-response task is to develop lesson plans for each standard in 4 parts:
1) Lesson plan sequence (informal outline acceptable) including a participatory or group activity, key reading skills to be achieved, and three assessment activities.
2) Detailed description of the participatory or group activity.
3) Detailed description of the reading skills activity.
4) Detailed description of one of the assessment activities.
Does anyone have an example lesson plan they wrote that sufficiently describes the instructional sequence? I don't really need one in any particular subject, because I just want to see an example of the procedure used.
In case others want study tips, here's what I found so far:
*test info and sample questions: http://www.ets.org/praxis/ca/requirements/
*supposedly it's like the Praxis II
*someone recommended the book Tools for Teaching (Fred Jones)
