Student Teaching Handbook

COOPERATING TEACHERS

Thank you for hosting a student teacher from Oklahoma Christian University.  As a cooperating teacher, you have the opportunity to make a positive, professional impact on the student teacher, as well as the profession as a whole.

Your student teacher values your suggestions, constructive criticism, helpful hints and guidance.  In your role as a mentor, please take a few moments during the day or before/after school to review the student teacher’s performance.  This time of reflection with your guidance is invaluable to the continued professional growth of the student teacher.

Please take a few minutes to review the Student Teaching Handbook received from your student teacher in August.  The Handbook is a fast read and will give you valuable information regarding responsibilities of the cooperating teacher, university supervisor, and student teacher.

STUDENT TEACHERS

Please take a few minutes to review the Student Teaching Handbook.  This Handbook is a fast read.  Be proactive in understanding your role, your cooperating teacher’s role, and your supervisor’s role in the student teaching process.  Understanding the student teaching process will allow you to receive the benefits of student teaching and to be successful in your clinical practice.

SUPERVISORS

Please take a few minutes to review the Student Teaching Handbook.  There have been several important changes that need to be brought to your attention.  One very important item is the revised Student Teaching Calculation Sheet.  Your role in the student teaching process is invaluable as liaison to the cooperating teacher and as mentor to the student teacher.
