Student teaching can be an overwhelming experience for both the student teacher and cooperating teacher. This Cooperating Handbook is designed to enable this experience to be a smooth one. The handbook is a guide for districts, schools, colleges of education to empower cooperating teachers to navigate the field experience with ease and confidence. It provides a step by step guide through the various stages of the student teaching experience.

Also provided is a list of web-based and other curriculum and management resources that might be helpful to the student teacher. The appendices section contains valuable checklists, sample schedules, and sample letters of recommendation that could be modified for your use. Each chapter has been simplified to make it easy to follow and implement.
