Lowenhaupt, Mary A.; Stephanik, Corinne E.
This Fastback provides a guide for developing a partnership between the student teacher and the cooperating teacher in order to make student teaching a rewarding experience for all involved. It explains that the relationship between the student teacher and the cooperating teacher needs to be one of collaboration and mutual respect in order to ensure that the experience benefits the student teacher, the cooperating teacher, and the students in the classroom. Many factors influence this relationship, including planning, feedback, honesty, and guidance. The chapters focus on the following topics: "Preparing for Student Teaching,""Building a Good Relationship,""Developing the First Lesson Plan,""Giving and Receiving Feedback," and "Concluding the Student Teaching Experience." Each section presents information on the role of the cooperating teacher and the role of the student teacher in various situations. (Contains 11 references.) (SM)
