Student Teaching

Meetings

Your Junior Year: Student Teaching Application Meetings

It is ideal to apply to student teach one full academic year prior to your intended student teaching semester. For example, if you are planning to student teach in Fall 2018 or Spring of 2019, you can apply to student teach as early as the Fall 2017 semester.

In order to apply for student teaching, you must attend the prerequisite application meeting. This meeting provides valuable information regarding the application itself, requirements for different school districts, and what happens after you apply.

We are currently putting the final touches on an online Canvas module that will replace the “in person” application meeting. This module is expected to become available in early October, and students will be added to a Canvas course in order to complete the module.

If you do not receive an invitation to join the Canvas course by the first week of October, and you intend to student teach during the 2018-19 academic year (Fall 18, Spring 19), send an email to stuteach@indiana.edu and ask to be added to this course.

Your Senior Year: Pre-Student Teaching Meetings


edTPA Information Meeting

This meeting will focus specifically on the edTPA performance assessment. It is mandatory that you attend prior to student teaching – you can decide how far in advance you’d like to receive this information (i.e., junior year, semester prior, etc).

Students who are student teaching in Spring 2018 are expected to attend this meeting. Dates for this meeting will be determined in early October, with meetings taking place in mid-November. Please check back in mid-October for updates.

General Information Meeting

Student teachers must attend the General Information Meeting during the semester before student teaching. This meeting will provide valuable information about various aspects of student teaching; including:

  • Ways to prepare for student teaching
  • Different components of student teaching
  • The responsibilities of all members of the student teaching triad (you, your supervising teacher, and your university supervisor)
  • Licensure requirements
  • Career Connections resources

Students who are student teaching in Spring 2018 are expected to attend this meeting. Dates for this meeting will be determined in early October, with meetings taking place in early-December. Please check back in mid-October for updates.
