Sequential Plan for Student Teaching


The following time schedule is suggested to determine what and when student teachers will teach. The cooperating teacher and the student teacher, with input from the University supervisor if necessary, should jointly decide how quickly classroom duties should be assumed. Student teachers should be aware of the dates of their placements. Whether the first placement is 8 or 7 weeks long depends on the school calendar.

During the second placement (B), it may be assumed that a student teacher will be able to undertake the full teaching load more quickly, but adequate time must be given to allow the student teacher to learn routines and student names. In the last week of both placements, the student teacher should hand control of the classes back to the cooperating teacher. Time for observation of the cooperating teacher and other teaching practices and routines within the school are an important part of the Professional Semester experience. The cooperating teacher should assist the student teacher in planning these observations.
