  • Webinar Series: edTPA Overview for Mentor and Cooperating Teachers

    This webinar series is intended for mentor and cooperating teachers who are supporting teacher candidates in completing edTPA. 

  1. The first session will engage participants in a ‘walk-through’ of edTPA to gain an understanding of the structure of the assessment and its expectations. Participants will be able to identify what candidates must submit as evidence for each of the edTPA tasks and engage in a review of the scoring process and score reports.  
  2. The second session will provide a deeper examination of selected constructs assessed by edTPA and will focus on practical strategies to assist mentors in supporting teacher candidates with edTPA completion.  
  3. The third session will provide a review of several supplemental resources and materials to support formative feedback and acceptable support.  
  • Pre-reads: To prepare for the edTPA Overview for Mentor and Cooperating Teachers webinar series, participants should download the edTPA Handbook that they wish to review. Handbooks can be accessed in the edTPA Resource Library on edTPA.AACTE.org (you must have an account or create an account).   
  • Accessing the edTPA Handbook: If you partner with an educator preparation program, you may work with the program’s edTPA Coordinator to add you as a user. If you do not partner with an educator preparation program, your school district may apply (at no cost) for an Associate Membership. Prior to the webinar, please familiarize yourself with the handbook.
