The student teacher should develop a lesson plan for each class/subject taught, when observed, as well as a minimum of one unit plan. All plans should be developed by the student teacher, not “borrowed” from the cooperating teacher. However, the cooperating teacher should be strongly encouraged to review and approve lesson plans prior to teaching. Lesson plans should be detailed at the beginning of the practicum, then, with the approval of the clinical faculty and cooperating teacher, may gradually become more concise and abbreviated using a traditional teacher plan book. Lesson and unit plans will be directly connected to the school’s curriculum. Student teachers are expected to keep a portfolio of materials used during the student teaching experience.
