The Reading/Writing Connection: Using Student Teachers.
Rosberg, Merilee A.
The student teacher, practicum, or field experience student can fit readily into a whole language classroom even if he or she has not been trained to use the process. The teacher needs to take time to discover the student associate's strengths and abilities; time taken to examine these abilities and to consider how they might be mutually complementary with the teacher's interests is quite worthwhile. Student teachers should be involved in planning lessons from the very beginning, as are the students in a whole language classroom. The continuance of a literate environment in the classroom can be ensured by using the skills of the student teacher to enhance and expand the community of learners in the classroom. (RS)
