Support Professional Field Placements in Schools

The purpose of this fund is to further expand the opportunities for student teachers in their field placements.  The School is moving towards a research-based model of student teaching where the master teacher and the student teacher co teach children.  This is no longer your grandmother’s student teaching.  Co-Teaching has been shown to be less obtrusive for students in the classroom and has been shown to increase learning in the co teaching classroom.   Professional Development Schools are places where SSU faculty and practicing classroom teachers work together to provide the best student teaching experiences.   Help us move forward to the 21 Century and support student teachers through contributions here.
