IESE majors have two different student teaching placements, one in a K-6 general education classroom for 16 weeks and one in a 5-12 special education classroom for 12 weeks. Student teaching placements are made by the Field Experiences Office after a teacher candidate applies for student teaching. IESE faculty review the teacher candidates application and decide if the student teacher will student teach abroad or at a distance site.
After a student teaching placement is made, teacher candidates are responsible for setting up a readiness meeting with their faculty supervisor and their cooperating teacher. This readiness meeting will be led by the faculty supervisor who will explain the responsibilities of all involved.
Faculty supervisors will observe and document a student teacher candidate's progress over the course of the semester.
Teacher candidates must complete the edTPA and upload it to be scored.
Teacher candidates must receive a passing evaluation from both their faculty supervisor and their cooperating teacher to pass student teaching. There will be a Mid-Point and Final Evaluation to be completed by the mentor teacher and the teacher candidate.
All details are in the Student Teaching Handbook.
