Cooperating Teacher Handbook
We took all the parts of the lengthy Student Teaching Handbook that pertain to you, and compiled it into a smaller handbook specifically for Cooperating Teachers!
There is a lot of great information in the handbook about your role, the role of your student teacher, expectations for the semester, and a few suggested timelines. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns!
TK20 Student Teacher Evaluation Forms
Tk20 is an online data management system used by our UWO Teacher Education Program. Each Student Teacher will have a Tk20 Field Experience Binder, which will house his or her artifacts, University Supervisor evaluations, and your Cooperating Teacher evaluation. These evaluations are required for licensure.
Prior to the end of your student teacher’s placement, please complete:
Field Experience Evaluation: Cooperating Teacher Form
Final Narrative (upload)
Logging into TK20
An automated email with a direct link to your student teacher’s Field Experience Binder was sent at the start of the semester. This automated email will look like it is from email@example.com and the subject will be “Field Assessment: for [student name].
This email is only sent once per semester, so please SAVE THIS EMAIL so you have access to your evaluations at the end of the placement. If you did not receive your link, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wisconsin Improvement Program Internships
The Wisconsin Improvement Program (WIP) interns are preservice teachers enrolled in one of Wisconsin’s educator preparation programs who complete a paid internship as their student teaching experience (p. 2). The internship opportunity is provided by a school district, is vetted and approved by the WIP Director at the DPI.
The intern experience is an important component of a teacher preparation program, and all parties must strive to ensure that a supportive learning environment exists. The WIP internship is guided by a team that consists of the intern, a cooperating teacher, select school staff, and the educator preparation program supervisor (p. 3).
