We have adopted the Co-teaching during student teaching model for student teaching. Which is defined as: "Two teachers (a mentor teacher and a teacher candidate) working together with groups of students; sharing the planning, organization, delivery and assessment of instruction, as well as the physical space" (T.Heck).
Each teacher candidate is assigned a supervisor from the college and is part of a student teaching cohort. Within this cohort model the college supervisor will meet with the teacher candidates weekly for formal and informal observations and to conduct a seminar. You will be asked to complete a mid and final evaluation for your teacher candidate using the EER Department Student Teaching Evaluation form (below). Your willingness to mentor our teacher candidates and to offer them your expertise, time, and guidance is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
For the Mentors please post this: We appreciate all feedback from our mentor teachers. Please let us know what you would like us to add to the Appendices of the Mentor handbook. We want this book to be useful to our mentor teachers. Please e-mail Rosemary Arioli, Director of Student Teaching , EER Department at Ariolir@buffalostate.edu
