In this article, the author shares a theoretically-informed activity to support teachers who are impacted by Washington’s edTPA, the Teacher Performance Assessment. The author considers the edTPA as a common language for best practices in teaching and as a useful tool for orienting candidates to the profession. Step-by-step instructions are complemented with explanations of the conceptual connection between the activity and the edTPA requirements.
