What educators are saying

I used this resource as part of my student teaching and it was extremely helpful! Kept my mind organized as well as my binder, and helped with my communication/expectations to my host teacher.
I loved using this with my college students to help them have a guide while observing during their field experience.


Student teaching is a critically important experience. It is a chance to observe master teachers at work, learn how to develop a good rapport with students, staff, and families, and get your feet wet in the teaching pool yourself! Sometimes it’s hard to know what to look for when you are observing master teachers. Use the pages in this packet to focus your observations and make the most out of this fantastic experience!

It contains the following pages:
★ Four Cover Options
★ Two Options for a Classroom Observation General Tool (can be used by the student teacher observing mentor teacher OR by the mentor teacher observing student teacher)
