CENTER FOR EXCELLENCE IN URBAN AND RURAL EDUCATION

PROGRAMS

The integrated student teaching program at BSC provides a model that has proven effective in guiding and supporting preservice teachers during their student teaching semester.  This program differs from traditional student teaching in several ways:

  • The college supervisor is on-site several days a week for informal observation, trouble-shooting, and conferencing with both student teachers and cooperating teachers.  Student teachers meet with the college supervisor after school once a week. 
  • The college supervisor observes, assists, and shares strategies for teaching opportunities outside of scheduled lessons (e.g., center time, daily routines and transitions).
  • There is a clear link between theory and practice through the demonstration lesson cycle.  The college supervisor arranges demonstration lessons, where outstanding teachers model excellent teaching.  Student teachers are asked to implement the modeled teaching strategy in his/her own classroom. 
  • There is a structured partnership that facilitates collaboration among all PDS participants.
