ITEP (Integrated Teacher Education Program)

ITEP student teachers participate in a two-semester supervised student teaching experiences under the supervision of experienced Cooperating Teachers (aka. Master Teachers).

Student Teaching Requirements

Prerequisite Coursework

ITEP students complete their two semesters of student teaching concurrently with other required coursework, as outlined in the blended multiple subject credential and baccalaureate degree program in Liberal Studies.

Observation Requirements

The observers will complete an Observation Form (NCR) for each of the specified formal observations, and discuss it with the student teacher before distributing the copies as noted on the form. Informal observations and post-observation conferences should be conducted throughout both semesters as appropriate.

Formal Evaluation Requirements

Formal evaluation of ITEP student teachers will be conducted twice during each semester of student teaching—midterm and final—by both the University Supervisor and the Cooperating Teacher (aka. Master Teacher), using the department’s Classroom Teaching Profile (CTP), which is available ONLINE. Please consult the CTP forms for detailed explanations of minimum passing score requirements at the midterm and the final evaluation of student teaching.

Expected Competencies

Other Expectations

During the two semesters of student teaching, ITEP student teachers are to gain experiences in working with diverse learners, English learners, children with special needs, and emergent and developing readers and writers. In addition, student teachers are also expected to attend IEP meetings, SST meetings, and other assessment and/or professional development meetings shadowing their cooperating teachers.
