2019 Cooperating Teacher Appreciation Mini-Grant Application

The School of Education is once again offering a mini-grant opportunity to our cooperating teachers in acknowledgement of their dedication and support for our teacher candidates. The 2019 mini-grant application materials will be available soon.

Information Resources

  • Supervision of Student Teaching (CI-695)
    This 3 credit blended (on-line & in-person) graduate course is designed for teachers who plan to supervise teacher candidates and to prepare teachers for supervision responsibilities.


Assessment Forms

  • Student Observation Form
    This is an optional use form.  At least one Observation Form is required,  but Cooperating Teachers may use their own formats rather than this form.
  • Standards in Practice (SIP) Rubric Guide for Field and Student Teaching Placements 
    This guide explains the purpose of the SIP and how use of the rubric differs when used to evaluate a Field I or II experience versus evaluation of a Student Teaching placement.
  • Standards in Practice (SIP) Rubric
    The SIP Rubric is used for evaluation of a teacher candidate during all phases of field experience:  Field I, Field II, and Student Teaching.  During a Student Teaching placement, the SIP Rubric is used for both the mid-term and final evaluation of the teacher candidate.
