Background for the Professional Semester Students have completed at least two school-based field experiences prior to student teaching. Students have completed all of the coursework in the Professional Core. Students are completing complementary assignments in a Professional Issues course and in some majors a content pedagogy and/or seminar course.

Guidelines for Live Performance Observations Ideally, the college supervisor/cooperating teacher is observing the student teacher doing at least some whole group instruction. The dates of the live observations may or may not be announced to the student teacher. Soon after the live observation the college supervisor/ cooperating teacher will conference with the student and review the observation form. The student teacher’s written instructional plan must be available for the college supervisor to review at the time of the observation.
Guidelines for Video Student Self-Monitoring Assignment Video assignment downloading directions on Canvas Video assignment Instruction may be of large or small group instruction. Both videos and self-reflection must be uploaded to Canvas. Phases 1 of this assignment must be completed prior to the mid-term conference. Phase 2 must be completed at least 1 week before the experience ends. If needed the college supervisor will be able to view either video by going into the Canvas site in the assignment folder. Do NOT post your video on any public site such as YouTube or Facebook.
Student Planning Expectations Written plans are to follow the Messiah College Planning Model (As taught in Instructional Design, Art,HPE, or Music Curriculum & Unit Instruction courses.)Messiah College Planning Model The cooperating teacher is a resource for the student teacher. The co-op may provide the student with preliminary plans, teaching materials, curriculum documents, or other relevant resources to assist the student in effective planning. The student teacher is to submit plans to the cooperating teacher 48 hours in advance of teaching. If the plans are not submitted in a timely manner or are not satisfactory by the time the student is to teach, the cooperating teacher may not allow the student teacher to teach.
Final Evaluation The Messiah College Final Evaluation Form is to be completed and signed electronically by the college supervisor with input from the cooperating teacher. The PDE 430 Form is to be completed by the college supervisor. The college supervisor will conference with the student teacher to explain the final evaluations and remind the student of the need for electronic signature. Both final evaluation forms are to be submitted by the college supervisors to the Teacher Education Program Office via MCSquare at the end of the semester. The evaluation forms are automatically submitted to the Field Experience Office once all parties have provided electronic signatures. Both final evaluation forms will be available to the student in MCSquare after TEP Office review at the end of the semester.
Guidelines for School Visits Students should follow the school district calendar including attending teacher in-service events. Student teachers should arrive when teachers are required to arrive and stay at least until teachers are allowed to leave at the end of the day. If a student teacher is absent from school either due to illness/family emergency or taking a professional development day, he/she is to complete the online absence form found in the TEP tab in MCSquare. The cooperating teacher and the college supervisor will be notified when the Field Experience Coordinator has approved the absence and listed the make up days as appropriate. Be actively engaged in classroom activities throughout the semester.
