Piece to all the people who helped me to be more

Responsible in my assign task,

Especially in Justice Cecilia Muñoz Palma High School,

Who accommodate us (Student Teachers) to take our Practicum 2 ,

And to all the Bachelor of Business Teacher Education Students of

Polytechnic University of the Philippines.


A word of gratitude is due to the following;

Teaching 2, and for untiring support and advice of my Coordinating Teacher Mr.

Jensen Reynaldo who gave me advice in classroom management and teaching


• For the Practicum 2 Coordinator, Professor Sheryl Morales for providing us the

guidance that we needed in taking our Practice Teaching outside the campus and

for lots of advice that she gave for the success of our Practice Teaching 2.

• For the Practicum 2 Coordinator of BBTE 4-2, Professor Marilyn Isip for her

encouragement and for untiring support to all our endeavors, And for giving us

teaching strategies to make our student active in the class.

• For our friends “Einjelz” for their words of encouragement and support.
• Our family for understanding, cooperating, inspiring and for giving us their full

support in terms of financial and moral support.

Above all, to the father Almighty, who is the source of our strengths and wisdom, we

deeply know that without him, any endeavor in this world will not be possible.

Father God in Jesus name,

We ask for your forgiveness,
You know how weak we are father,
Cleans us with your mighty hand.
We ask that you would bless
the youngest and littlest of learners,
the most helpless and powerless of persons,
with Your infinite and loving mercy,
granting them the strength to learn, concentrate,
and act appropriately towards
their teachers and fellow students.
We also ask that You would watch over them,
at home and at school
and grant them proper direction
so that they may learn
of Your wonderful virtues.
Lead us oh lord God in your way,
We offer unto you all our lives,
We invite you to come in our heart and lead us
In the way you wanted.
We ask this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen

Practice teaching occupies a key position in the programmed of teacher education.

It is a culminating experience in teacher preparation. It provides opportunity to beginning
teachers to become socialized into the profession (Furlong et.al, 1988). Performance
during practice teaching provides some basis for predicting the future success of the
teacher. Outgoing popularity and centrality of practice teaching is an important
contributing factor towards the quality of teacher education programmed. During practice
teaching working with students in schools provides a high degree of emotional
involvement of a mostly positive nature. Student teachers feel themselves grow through
experience and they begin to link to a culture of teaching.

Practice teaching is an essential component of social work training, yet very little
is written about the experience of practice teaching, the role of the practice teacher as the
pivot between theory and practice and the need to ensure the development of a sound
value base in all social work students are all explored in depth. The contributors
demonstrate how they have managed to create stimulating and rewarding learning
opportunities for their students by holding on to the essential skills and values of effective
social work in the face of continuous organizational re-structuring, resource constraints
and an uncertain future.

Student teaching, or practice teaching, is one of the most important and formative
experiences for me, this is the best opportunity for students wishing to become teachers.
As Student teachers at Justice Cecilia Munoz Palma I observe first the subject teachers at
work so as to learn about teachers' skills, strategies and classroom achievements. I also
evaluate my own teaching experiences through conferencing with teachers and lecturers
and, through self-reflection, implement a variety of approaches, strategies and skills with
a view to bring about meaningful learning. In this way I gain experience in managing and
evaluating class work; in maintaining discipline and good order in the classroom; find
their own teaching style and personality and become acquainted with school organization
and administration.

Department of Mathematics

Graduate Student Teaching Guidelines


Admission to the Ph.D. program in Mathematics carries with it a commitment of full

financial support for five years, subject only to the condition that the student is making
satisfactory progress toward the doctoral degree. This position carries a fixed stipend (the
same for all students) for nine months plus tuition and fees. In fulfillment of the
requirements for the M.Phil. degree, all students must gain teaching experience as part of
their graduate training.

The Mathematics Department believes that training in teaching is an integral part of the
training of graduate students as future scientists. Moreover, a large percentage of students
will look for jobs in academia. Universities now ask for proof that their prospective
faculty members are effective teachers, and hence look for some teaching experience as
well as teaching letters from the faculty and copies of student evaluations. Thus, all
graduate students are given the opportunity to teach undergraduate courses. As part of the
policy of the Graduate School of Art and Sciences, the department has created the
position of Director of Graduate Student Teaching, who will usually be the Calculus
Director. The following guidelines set parameters for graduate student teaching in the
Mathematics Department.
Teaching Responsibilities

In general, students in their first year do not teach, but, in order to provide them with
useful exposure to the scope of their future educational role, they typically assist in the
Mathematics Help Room. All other students are required to fulfill additional teaching
duties. The teaching opportunities in the department are as follows:

1. Calculus I-II courses or College Algebra (Math W1003)

2. Teaching assistantships

3. Supervision of sections of the Undergraduate Seminar

(1) Graduate students teaching a section of Calculus I-II or College Algebra (Math
W1003) are solely responsible for their section: grading homework, making and grading
exams, holding office hours. The enrollment is normally limited, to insure small section
sizes. Another graduate student is assigned to assist in teaching the section if the
enrollment is substantially larger.

(2) Graduate students assigned to a specific instructor are required to grade homework,
help grade exams, and hold office hours in the Help Room.

(3) Students teaching in the Undergraduate Seminar supervise the work and the lectures
of undergraduate students. The subject of each individual Undergraduate Seminar is often
proposed by the graduate students. The Undergraduate Seminar is supervised by a faculty


Teaching assignments are made by the Director of Undergraduate Studies, who takes into
consideration both the teaching obligations of the department and the needs of each
Teaching Fellow. With the exception of first year students, all students are assigned
teaching duties. Preferences expressed by the students and competence, in particular an
adequate command of English, are all taken into account. However, students supported
by a non-University fellowship (such as the NSF VIGRE grants) are exempt if this is a
condition of the fellowship. Finally, all teaching assignments are contingent upon a
student’s satisfactory academic progress.

Guidance and Training

The Director of Graduate Student Teaching is responsible for training and advising
Teaching Fellows.

The Teaching Seminar

First-year students are required to participate in a semester-long seminar on the teaching

of mathematics. In this seminar they practice:

o Creating a web page for a course

o Writing a syllabus
o Writing and grading exams
o Lecturing on a Calculus topic

Usually the students will be asked to prepare an hour-long lecture and will deliver about
half of it. The presentation is then discussed by the class and the instructor. Other means
of instruction might include giving a lecture in an actual Calculus section, with feedback
from the instructor and the class.

General advice on the philosophy and practice of teaching in an American University is

available in the form of a lecture in the Teaching Seminar, a pamphlet, Teaching
Guidelines in the Mathematics Department, prepared by the Department, and discussions
held at the beginning of each semester under the auspices of the Director of Graduate
Student Teaching. There is also a manual prepared by the Graduate School of Arts and
Sciences, which students may consult: (http://www.columbia.edu/cu/tat).
The American Language Program
All graduate students who are from countries whose native language is other than English
must demonstrate oral and written proficiency in English or pass the International
Teaching Fellows Course offered by the American Language Program.

Specific Training Requirements

1. Teaching Fellows assigned to Faculty

The faculty member is responsible for the training and guidance of the students who are
assigned to help him/her teach a course.

2. Calculus sections

Syllabi are available on the web for Calculus I-II courses. Meetings are held at the
beginning of the semester under the auspices of the Director of Graduate Student
Teaching, or a faculty member designated as course head, to discuss the syllabus and
other issues pertaining to the course, such as exams and grading policies. At least once a
semester, the Director of Graduate Student Teaching or another faculty member
delegated by him will visit each class taught by a graduate student for the purposes of
evaluation and feedback.

3. College Algebra (Math W1003)

The Director of Graduate Student Teaching is responsible for advising the Teaching
Fellows who teach College Algebra.

4. Summer session

The Director of Graduate Student Teaching will designate a representative for the
summer session, usually a faculty member, who is responsible for advising graduate
students teaching summer courses.

Student evaluation forms (or an electronic equivalent) are distributed at the end of every
course taught by graduate students. The evaluations are kept in the department. The
evaluations are one of the elements taken into account in writing letters of
recommendation. Needless to say, the evaluations are subject to interpretation.
Comments from faculty members supervising a TA or supervising the undergraduate
seminars are also taken into account. The Calculus Director will also evaluate the
students teaching Calculus sections by visiting their classes.

Fairness Issues

Insofar as is possible, the duties of the various Teaching Fellows are roughly comparable.
A point of reference is the amount of time spent by graduate students teaching a section
of Calculus.

The level of teaching must be satisfactory, both in fairness to the under- graduates who
take the courses and as part of the training. It is of course not possible to write a good
teaching letter for a student who is not an adequate or dedicated teacher. Likewise, the
department cannot appoint graduate students as instructors in the summer session if they
do not have an adequate teaching record.

Complaints from undergraduate students taught by graduate students come to the

attention of the Director of Graduate Student Teaching or the Director of Undergraduate
Studies. They assess the validity of the complaints, and find remedies if appropriate. In
the past, some instructors have found it useful to distribute an informal questionnaire in
the middle of the semester to see if the pace of the course is appropriate and asking for

Graduate students' grievances should be resolved first by bringing them to the attention of
the Director of Graduate Student Teaching or the Director of Undergraduate Studies. If
they cannot be resolved at this stage they can be appealed first to the Director of Graduate
Study, next to the Chair of the Mathematics Department, and then to the Assistant Dean
for Graduate Teaching at GSAS.

Policy on Graduate Research Assistants (GRAs)

1) A student who receives a graduate research fellowship will in general continue with
his or her normal teaching responsibilities. However, at the request of the Principal
Investigator on the grant supporting the GRA (who will usually be the student's adviser),
the student may get relief up to one and a half years from teaching.

2) It is understood that all students will have some kind of teaching experience as part of
their graduate training, which will normally include at least two semesters of actual
classroom experience (i.e. Calculus or College Algebra). Moreover, it is understood that
they will have sufficient prior experience as a Teaching Fellow to prepare them for this.
However, students holding an outside fellowship which expressly forbids them to teach
are exempt from this rule.
Department of Special Education
Programs in Communicative Disorders and Special Education

Student Teaching Guidelines

Students should plan on completing their student teaching during their last semester
in the credential program. Students must be enrolled full-time for a minimum
of 12 units during the semester of student teaching. Students must apply for
student teaching one semester before they intend to student teach.

Guidelines for Teaching Students with Disabilities

General Strategies for Optimizing Learning:

Many teaching strategies that assist students with disabilities are also known to benefit
students without disabilities. Instruction provided in an array of approaches will reach
more students than instruction using one method. DS offers the following suggestions to
assist instructors in meeting the growing diversity of student needs in the classroom,
particularly those with disabilities. DS welcomes any additional strategies instructors
have found helpful.

The Syllabus & The Textbook:

• Make class syllabus and list of required texts available by request to students
before the start of the semester. This allows time for students to obtain materials
in alternative formats and to begin reading assignments.
• If available and appropriate, select a textbook with an accompanying study guide
for optional student use.

Early in the Semester:

Place a statement in your syllabus and make an announcement at the first meeting of the
class such as: “If you are a student with a disability or believe you might have a disability
that requires accommodations, please contact Dr. Brent Mosser
in Student Disability Services, 385 Garland, (410) 516-4720,

This approach preserves students’ privacy and also indicates your willingness to provide
accommodations as needed.

• Because many students with disabilities need additional time to process and
complete assignments, convey expectations in the syllabus (e.g., grading, material
to be covered, due dates).
• Announce reading assignments and list in the syllabus well in advance for the
benefit of students using taped materials or other alternative formats. Recording
an entire book takes an average of six weeks; DS can produce the materials in
installments when informed of the sequence in which the materials will be used.

General strategies for Teaching and Presenting:

• Begin class with a review of the previous lecture and an overview of topics to be
covered that day. At the conclusion of the lecture, summarize key points.
• Highlight major concepts and terminology both orally and visually. Be alert for
opportunities to provide information in more than one sensory mode.
• Emphasize main ideas and key concepts during lecture and highlight them on the
blackboard or overhead.
• Speak directly to students; use gestures and natural expressions to convey further
• Diminish or eliminate auditory and visual distractions.
• Present new or technical vocabulary on the blackboard or overhead, or use a
• Use visual aides such as diagrams, charts, and graphs; use color to enhance the
• Give assignments both orally and in written form; be available for clarification.
• Provide adequate opportunities for participation, questions and/or discussion.
• Provide timelines for long-range assignments.
• Use sequential steps for long-range assignments; for example, for a lengthy paper

1. select a topic
2. write an outline
3. submit a rough draft
4. make necessary corrections with approval
5. turn in a final draft.
• Give feedback on early drafts of papers so there is adequate time for clarification,
rewrites, and refinements.
• Provide study questions and review sessions to aid in mastering material and
preparing for exams.
• Give sample test questions; explain what constitutes a good answer and why.
• To test knowledge of material rather than test-taking savvy, phrase test items
clearly. Be concise and avoid double negatives.
• Facilitate the formation of study groups for students who wish to participate.
• Encourage students to seek assistance during your office hours and to use campus
support services.

Points to Remember:

• When in doubt about how to assist, ask the student directly and check the
Instructor Contact letter provided by Student Disability Services. If you still have
questions, call the SDS office.
• When students ask for extended deadlines, approved absences, or rescheduled
examinations, please have the student discuss these requests with Dr. Sanders
• Confidentiality of all student information is essential. At no time should the class
be informed that a student has a disability, unless the student makes a specific
request to do so.
• The Student Code of Conduct regarding disruptive behavior applies to all
students. Clearly state behavioral expectations for all students; discuss them
openly in your classroom, on your syllabus, and with individual students as
• If you require assistance or guidance concerning a student with a disability, please
contact the appropriate DS coordinator.

Accommodations make it possible for a student with a disability to learn the material
presented and for an instructor to fairly evaluate the student’s understanding of the
material without interference because of the disability.

A student needs official authorization before receiving accommodations. The student is

responsible for providing the DS office with current documentation from qualified
professionals regarding the nature of the disability. After talking with the student and, if
necessary, the instructor, the SDS office determines appropriate accommodations based
on the nature and extent of the disability described in the documentation. The SDS office
constructs an Instructor Letter specifying authorized accommodations. The student is
responsible for delivering the letters to the instructors and discussing accommodations
based on the contents of the letter. The process of requesting and receiving
accommodations is interactive; all people involved—the student, the instructor and the
SDS office—have a responsibility to make sure the process works.

Examples of Reasonable Accommodations, which students with disabilities may require:

• Use of interpreters, scribes, readers, and/or note takers

• Taped classes and/or texts
• Enlarged copies of notes, required readings, handouts and exam questions
• Extended time on exams
• Quiet, distraction-free environment for taking exams
• Use of aids, such as calculators or desk references, during exams
• Use of computers in class or access to computers for writing assignments and
• Taped or oral versions of exams
• Preferential seating in the classroom
• An accessible website following the guidelines of Section 508
Guidelines for Interpreting Student Teaching Evaluations
Guidelines for Interpreting Student Teaching Evaluations

Student teaching evaluations are the most commonly used measure for evaluating
teaching in higher education. There are at least two purposes for evaluating teaching: to
improve the teaching and to make personnel decisions (merit, retention, promotion).
When using student teaching evaluations for either of these purposes, it is essential to
follow certain guidelines to ensure valid interpretation of the data. The following
guidelines are adapted from Theall and Franklin (1991) and Pallett (2006).[1]

#1. Sufficient Response Ratio

There must be an appropriately high response ratio.[2] For classes with 5 to 20 students
enrolled, 80% is recommended for validity; for classes with between 21 and 50 students,
75% is recommended. For still larger classes, 50% is acceptable. Data should not be
considered in personnel decisions if the response rate falls below these levels.

#2. Appropriate Comparisons

Because students tend to give higher ratings to courses in their majors or electives than
they do to courses required for graduation, the most appropriate comparisons are made
between courses of a similar nature. For example, the Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts
average would not be a valid comparison for a lower division American Cultures course.

#3. When Good Teaching is the Average

When interpreting an instructor’s rating, it is more appropriate to look at the actual value
of the rating instead of comparing it to the average rating. In other words, a good rating is
still good, even when it falls below the average.

#4. Written Comments

Narrative comments are often given great consideration by administrators, but this
practice is problematic. Only about 10% of students write comments (unless there is an
extreme situation), and the first guideline recommends a minimum 50% response
threshold. Thus decisions should not rest on a 10% sample just because the comments
were written rather than given in numerical form! Student comments can be valuable for
the insights they provide into classroom practice and they can guide further investigation
or be used along with other data, but they should not be used by themselves to make

#5. Other considerations

· Class-size can affect ratings. Students tend to rank instructors teaching small classes
(less than 10 or 15) most highly, followed by those with 16 to 35 and then those with
over 100 students. Thus the least favorably rated are classes with 35 to 100 students.

· There are disciplinary differences in ratings. Humanities courses tend to be rated more
highly than those in the physical sciences.

#6. One Final Point

Teaching is a complex and multi-faceted task. Therefore the evaluation of teaching

requires the use of multiple measures. In addition to teaching evaluations, the use of at
least one other measure, such as peer observation, peer review of teaching materials
(syllabus, exams, assignments, etc.), course portfolios, student interviews (group or
individual), and alumni surveys is recommended. Contact the Center for Teaching
Excellence (310-338-2772) if you need assistance in adopting one of these alternate
measures or have any questions about these guidelines.

Pallett, W. “Uses and abuses of student ratings.” In Evaluating faculty performance: A

practical guide to assessing teaching, research, and service. Peter Seldin (ed.). Bolton,
MA: Anker Publishing, 2006.
Theall, M. and Franklin, J. (eds.) Effective practices for improving teaching. New
Directions in Teaching and Learning, no. 48, San Francisco: Jossey-Bass, 1991.

The following describes how to compute the response ratio for a given set of forms from
one section of one course. First, note the number (n) of forms returned and the number
(N) of students in the class, compute the ratio n/N, and then multiply by 100% to convert
the ratio to a percent. Then, for each question under consideration, from this percent
subtract the percent of blank and “Not Applicable” responses. The result is the response
ratio for that particular question. If the result does not meet the threshold recommended
in Guideline #1 above, the data from that question should not be considered.

each of the following student populations: socio-economically disadvantaged students,
students who are English Language Learners, and students with disabilities.

Supervised Student Teaching - 6 credits

Prior to student teaching , students must participate in an official ACTFL OPI (Oral
Proficiency Interview) and receive a minimum spoken proficiency rating of Advanced-
Low as defined in the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines-Speaking (1999). Students must
contact Language Testing International (LTI) and arrange for either a face-to-face OPI or
a phone interview.

Written Project

Students in all degree programs will be required to complete a four-week foreign

language teaching module specifically designed for the Supervised Student Teaching


All degree requirements must be completed within five (5) years from the semester date
of admission as a matriculated student.

NOTE: When a student is admitted or readmitted to an SPD degree or certificate

program, students may petition SPD to have courses that are older than five (5) years, and
no older than 10 years, individually evaluated by the appropriate department/faculty to
determine if the credits may be applied toward current SPD degree/certificate
requirements. Grades in such courses must be "B" or better. (B- grades are ineligible for

Teacher Certification

This New York State registered and approved program qualifies students for license upon
successful degree completion. Students must complete all courses required for the MAT.

Teacher preparation candidates must also complete certification workshops in child

abuse, substance abuse, and school violence. In addition, they must be fingerprinted.
Stony Brook offers these workshops monthly. See Certification and Licensing
Workshops for details.

Stony Brook University requires that students must have completed an undergraduate
degree and have at least 36 credits in the content field for admission to the MAT
program. This course of study should be substantially the equivalent to that of a Stony
Brook undergraduate degree program.

As we have seen, public policy can drive the issues that create a cultural climate looking

for change. Several issues that are finding platforms for discussion among politicians,

teachers, and communities could provoke changes in the next few years. The trends we

currently see infamily support services are:

• States adopting a variety of tax credits for working families giving them help with

childcare and in-home care expenses (Hirschhorn Donahue, 2006)

• Family-leave policies, allowing both parents opportunities to spend time with

newborn babies in the early formative years of infancy

• Flexible work schedules and job-sharing opportunities for parents who want to

continue on their career path

• Internet and media control legislation to assure parents that children will not view

or find inappropriate materials while using these media for learning

• Improvement in the quality and availability of infant and toddler care

Educational trends and research that we will see in the coming years include:

• Standards-based education, focusing on outcomes for student learning

(Schumacher, Irish, & Lombardi, 2003)

• Full-day kindergarten providing more time for in-class experiential learning

(Walston & West, 2004)

• Research on the economic impact of the child-care industry and its effect on the

local community; employment needs are identified to maintain a workforce (Rolnick

& Grunewald, 2003).

• Prekindergarten opportunities for every four-year-old in the United States, the

universal Pre-K movement (Pre[K] Now, 2006)

• National School Readiness Indicators Initiative, creating a set of measurable

indicators defining school readiness (Getting Ready, February 2005)

• Quality Rating Systems, a system of rating the quality of child-care programs that

is tied to incentives and reimbursement rates (NCCIC, June 2002)

• TEACH, professional development for early-care and early-education teachers

tied to education and training incentives (TEACH, 2004)

• Early childhood assessment, looking at appropriate assessments spurred on by the

debate surrounding the Head Start National Reporting System assessment (Horton &

Bowman, 2001).

• Gubernatorial Leadership for Early Care and Education (Lovejoy, 2006)

• Environmental Rating scales used in measuring the quality of early childhood

programs (Harms, Clifford, & Cryer, 1998)


Literacy rate in the Philippines has improved a lot over the last few
years- from 72 percent in 1960 to 94 percent in 1990. This is attributed
to the increase in both the number of schools built and the level of
enrollment in these schools.
The number of schools grew rapidly in all three levels - elementary,
secondary, and tertiary. From the mid-1960s up to the early 1990, there
was an increase of 58 percent in the elementary schools and 362 percent
in the tertiary schools. For the same period, enrollment in all three levels
also rose by 120 percent. More than 90 percent of the elementary schools
and 60 percent of the secondary schools are publicly owned. However,
only 28 percent of the tertiary schools are publicly owned.
A big percentage of tertiary-level students enroll in and finish commerce
and business management courses. Table 1 shows the distribution of
courses taken, based on School Year 1990-1991. Note that the difference
between the number of enrollees in the commerce and business courses
and in the engineering and technology courses may be small - 29.2
percent for commerce and business and 20.3 percent for engineering and
technology. However, the gap widens in terms of the number of
graduates for the said courses.

On gender distribution, female students have very high representation in

all three levels. At the elementary level, male and female students are
almost equally represented. But female enrollment exceeds that of the
male at the secondary and tertiary levels . Also, boys have higher rates of
failures, dropouts, and repetition in both elementary and secondary
Aside from the numbers presented above, which are impressive, there is
also a need to look closely and resolve the following important issues: 1)
quality of education 2) affordability of education 3) goverment budget
for education; and 4) education mismatch.
1. Quality - There was a decline in the quality of the Philippine
education, especially at the elementary and secondary levels.
For example, the results of standard tests conducted among
elementary and high school students, as well as in the National
College of Entrance Examination for college students, were
way below the target mean score.
2. Affordability - There is also a big disparity in educational
achievements across social groups. For example, the
socioeconomically disadvantaged students have higher dropout
rates, especially in the elementary level. And most of the
freshmen students at the tertiary level come from relatively
well-off families.
3. Budget - The Philippine Constitution has mandated the
goverment to allocate the highest proportion of its budget to
education. However, the Philippines still has one of the lowest
budget allocations to education among the ASEAN countries.
4. Mismatch - There is a large proportion of "mismatch" between
training and actual jobs. This is the major problem at the
tertiary level and it is also the cause of the existence of a large
group of educated unemployed or underemployed.

The following are some of the reforms proposed:

1. Upgrade the teachers' salary scale. Teachers have been

underpaid; thus there is very little incentive for most of them to
take up advanced trainings.
2. Amend the current system of budgeting for education across
regions, which is based on participation rates and units costs.
This clearly favors the more developed regions. There is a need
to provide more allocation to lagging regions to narrow the
disparity across regions.
3. Stop the current practice of subsidizing state universities and
colleges to enhance access. This may not be the best way to
promote equity. An expanded scholarship program, giving more
focus and priority to the poor, maybe more equitable.
4. Get all the leaders in business and industry to become actively
involved in higher education; this is aimed at addressing the
mismatch problem. In addition, carry out a selective admission
policy, i.e., installing mechanisms to reduce enrollment in
oversubscribed courses and promoting enrollment in
undersubscribed ones.
5. Develop a rationalized apprenticeship program with heavy
inputs from the private sector. Furthermore, transfer the control
of technical training to industry groups which are more attuned
to the needs of business and industry.


Student teaching is required for students who are not yet certified to teach. It is
different from a practicum, which is required when a student already holds certification
to teach, yet wants a certificate extension to teach another area of specialization; they are
both college-supervised field-based experiences.

As a student teacher essentially I shadow my cooperating teacher for about one

week, eventually gaining more responsibility in teaching the class as the days and weeks
progress. Eventually, as a student teacher will assume most of the teaching
responsibilities for the class including class management, lesson planning, assessment,
and grading. Thus, it able to more fully experience the role of the teacher as the
classroom teacher takes on the observation role in the class.

The first few days of watching the 1st year students intimidated me because I had
never been in a classroom setting like that and not been the student. The cooperating
teacher was great, he very accommodating and after each day would ask me if I had any
questions and would answer them thoroughly. He was also one of the most positive
people I have ever met. He could find the good in almost every situation which is
refreshing because in my experience with teachers in my own schooling I have found that
many teachers are quick to judge and usually do so in a negative manner. By the time I
did my lesson I was comfortable with the students and the classroom. I was also
comfortable because the cooperating teacher had gone over my lesson with me the day
before and gave me pointers on how to approach each objective.

I found this to be a rewarding experience. I feel I left the class everyday having
learned more than the students I was helping. Working with only many students in one
day gave me a chance to get to know the student I was helping which made both the
student and I feel more comfortable each day. Along with these feelings of comfort, the
student’s behavior improved the longer I was there.
