Ohio Standards for the Teaching Profession


Standard 4: Instruction - Teachers plan and deliver effective instruction that advances the learning of each
individual student.
Teachers align their instructional goals and activities with school and district priorities and Ohios
academic content standards.
Teachers use information about students learning and performance to plan and deliver instruction that
will close the achievement gap.
Teachers communicate clear learning goals and explicitly link learning activities to those defined goals.
Teachers apply knowledge of how students think and learn to instructional design and delivery.
Teachers differentiate instruction to support the learning needs of all students, including students
identified as gifted, students with disabilities and at-risk students.
Teachers create and select activities that are designed to help students develop as independent learners and
complex problem-solvers.
Teachers use resources effectively, including technology, to enhance student learning.

Directions: Include an Entry Form for each artifact and respond to the following prompts.
Question 1: What is the artifact? Identify the artifact (case study, PowerPoint presentation, field evaluation,
lesson plan, unit, video, literature review, or other) and give a brief narrative description.
A lesson plan from my clinical experience was chosen to represent standard four. This lesson deals with
oceanic and atmospheric currents I chose this as an artifact because it was one of the better lessons that I
taught throughout the clinical practice. The students had previously been learning about the atmosphere and
climate. This lesson built on that by allowing the students to pair up with a partner to figure out how they
could use specific ocean currents to travel from city to city like many merchants and explorers did
throughout history. The students were required to research each city they would stop at along their journeys
as well as map out each current that they took along the way.
Question 2: How does the artifact relate to the OSTP standard? Use language of the standard to explain how
it relates.
This lesson plan allowed me to deliver effective instruction that advances the learning of each student. The
lesson goals and objectives were aligned with the state of Ohios academic content standards. These goals
were clearly stated at the beginning and end of the lesson. This activity took some of the students personal
interests and made it relevant to the content. The students had the opportunity to use technology such as
iPads to help them with their research and enhance their learning. There was differentiation in the lesson to
support the learning needs of all students. The students were strategically paired up so that students would
be working with someone who would complement their learning style.
Question 3: What have you learned from the artifact experience that will make you a better teacher in the
future?
I have learned to link the material to the students lives and interests. One of the most frequently asked
questions is dealing with using the material in real life. They dont care about these abstract ideas and
concepts. They want to know how the information will directly affect them. If the material is relevant to
their lives they are much more willing to work with it. Students are much more willing to learn and work

with material that is relevant to lives or something that they have an interest in. If you can get the students
excited and interested about the material, then they will run with it on their own.
