Becoming a Teacher: Practicum Guidelines for Student Teachers, Cooperating Teachers, Principals, College Supervisors.
Liebert, Doris K.
This manual is intended to serve as a basic guide for the partners in the Whitworth College (Washington) student teaching program--the student teacher, the cooperating teacher, the college supervisor, and the building administrator. It contains basic information about the education program, serves as a general reference for practicum procedures, and offers suggestions for practice grounded in theory and research. The objectives and mission of the student teaching program are stated; qualifications, roles and responsibilities of student teachers and mentoring personnel are described; and policies, procedures, and criteria for successful completion of the student teaching practicum are included. The handbook is divided into four sections as follows: (1) Professional Preparation; (2) Participants in Practicum; (3) Program Policies and Procedures; and (4) Forms and Addenda, which provides: (1) a sample Whitworth College lesson plan format; (2) an application form for student teaching; (3) cooperating teacher and student teacher guidelines for the elementary, secondary, and special education levels; and (4) a sample student teaching progress report. (Contains 18 references.) (LL)
