ISP Specific Information and Criteria
Scholars may work individually or in groups of not more than three per group to prepare a professional In-Service Presentation. The basic idea is to collect and organize material that could be presented to other faculty members as part of an In-Service Training day. The materials may be collected into either a paper or digital portfolio, or posted on a web site. The following criteria apply to all of the presentations:
- Select or prepare professional quality handout materials and/or web site materials that will be of value to the other faculty at a school where you are employed or would like to be employed. These materials should relate to instruction and/or instructional support concepts. Topics for all ISPs should be selected, and approved by the instructor, not later than the date indicated on the Class Schedule for class session #4.
- Paper handout materials should be organized into a packet with a COVER SHEET that lists the materials that are in the packet and includes the name, the e-mail address, and the teaching specialty of each scholar contributing to the presentation. The COVER SHEET for each group should follow the same format as the:
- Provide information about how the materials can be used.
- PowerPoint Presentations with hot links to Web based resources are highly encouraged.
- Materials should be timely, interesting and focused on something that has real potential value to other teachers.
A total of ten points are possible plus an additional point for ISPs that are posted on the scholar's own web site and/or another point if a PowerPoint Presentation is a part of the ISP.
Scholars should send the course instructor an e-mail message as soon as they have all of their ISP materials collected. That message should describe the ISP materials and indicate if they are posted on the scholar's web site OR will be sent to the instructor as part of either a paper or digital portfolio.
