Don’t Ignore Conjunctions!
When you read the edTPA® Handbook and the rubrics, pay VERY close attention to conjunctions. A few things to keep in mind:
- If a prompt says “AND” then you need to do BOTH things.
- If it says “OR”, then you do one OR the other.
- If it says “AND/OR” you have the choice.
As you read, highlight the conjunctions . This will help ensure you always provide all the information required.
Hint: There are LOTS of “AND”s in the handbooks!
