ACT (Accelerated Collaborative Teaching Program)

ACT student teachers participate in two-semester supervised fieldwork and student teaching experiences--one in the fall semester and the other in the spring semester. Student teaching is expected to be completed in classrooms of coaches in LAUSD’s Local District B or collaborating teachers in other approved sites.

Student Teaching Requirements

Preparatory Coursework

As ACT is a ONE-year program, student teachers complete their supervised fieldwork and student teaching experiences concurrently with the requisite coursework in the single subject credential program.

Observation Requirements

Expected Competencies


Formal evaluation of ACT student teachers will be conducted twice during each semester of student teaching--midterm and final—by both the University Supervisor and the Collaborating Teacher (aka Master Teacher), using the Secondary Education Department’s evaluation forms, which are available ONLINE at http://www.csun.edu/education/sed/student_teaching/forms/. Please consult the evaluation forms for detailed explanations of minimum passing score requirements for the midterm and the final evaluation of student teaching.

Passwords and links for ONLINE evaluations are sent out to University Supervisors and Supervising Mentor Teachers (aka Master Teachers) by email twice each semester—two weeks before midterm and final evaluation due dates. For further information about passwords, please contact the Secondary Education student teaching coordinator assistant, at christina.perez@csun.edu or call (818) 677-2580.

Other Expectations

During the two semesters of student teaching, ACT student teachers are to gain experiences in working with diverse learners, English learners, and students with special needs. In addition, ACT student teachers are also expected to attend IEP meetings, SST meetings, and other assessment, and/or professional development meetings shadowing their Collaborating Teachers.
