Clip to ScrapBook #2

With my student teachers, the amount of assistance I give them varies on their comfort level. Ideally, I want them to plan and teach two full weeks without too much input from me. In reality, your CT is not preparing you for the real world if sheís handing you what to do. Itís important for you to learn how to seek out resources and plan your own lessons- there is no guarantee that whatever school you are hired at will have a basal or scripted program.

You and your CT also have a curriculum- itís the stare standards/Common Core depending on where you live. She may not follow a PROGRAM- there is a difference between curriculum and program.

Itís important to be flexible, but itís really hard to do in your earlier years! With experience, you are able to adjust more easily. Have you discussed any of this with your CT? How far into your student teaching are you? I would just ask what skills sheíd like you to teach for your takeover time.
