Elementary Education Student Teaching

Clinical Experiences

The student teaching experience is probably the most important phase of a teacher’s beginning professional preparation.  By its very nature, the student teaching experience places a student in a dual role, that of a student and that of a teacher.  As a student of teaching, learning is occurring through teaching experiences and reflection upon those experiences with the university supervisor and cooperating teacher.  As a teacher, the student shares with the cooperating teacher (in progressively increasing amounts) the actual instructional responsibilities for the classroom.
