Reply to: RE>>Student Teachers' Methods


Our cooperating teachers get a voucher for a course. BUT they can't use it
unless the course has room for them. They're often frozen out.

Treating them like real colleagues in the certification endeavor might be a
good idea. How do other colleges compensate teachers? I would be interested
in collecting some informal data about this.

responsible for finding their own placement. Therefore, they usually go
back to the schools they graduated from. I'm not sure how much, if any,
the supervising teachers are compensated for this effort. Furthermore,
the student teaching itself is only about 2 weeks long, and the
supervising teachers are the only ones (usually) evaluating the student
teachers. University level faculty gets involved in this aspect little,
if any. Interesting, isn't it?<<
