Schoology intro

Virtual Cooperating Teacher

You have all been assigned a virtual cooperating teacher for the summer class. This person is to be used as a guide and resource for you to bounce ideas off of – NOT to complete an assignment for you! The purpose of this professional relationship is to provide you with an authentic environment for your coursework and materials. This relationship is to be fruitful for you as a preservice educator because you can create materials that can be used in an actual classroom! Be sure you are in contact with your virtual cooperating teacher by:

(a) emailing them an introduction about yourself,

(b) keeping them up to date about the requirements of assignments,

(c) asking relative and professional questions,

(d) providing quality materials for them to use in their classrooms, and

( e) responding back to your cooperating teacher in a professional and timely manner.

This individual will be able to provide you with advice about practice, planning, preparation of tools, tips, knowledge of students and their school environment. The link to your virtual cooperating teacher is here – please be sure to follow them on twitter and email them ASAP
