Student Teaching

Student teaching is defined as a set of organized and carefully planned classroom teaching experiences for fourteen weeks required of all candidates in a teacher preparation program. Student teachers are assigned to one or more classrooms, closely supervised and mentored by a certified teacher, the cooperating teacher, who provides regular feedback to the student on his or her classroom teaching performance. General supervision of student teachers is provided by a university professional educator. Students take the appropriate Student Teaching Seminar class while student teaching. A complete Student teaching Handbook will be provided to each student teacher.
