Student Teaching Sample Materials

The materials found on this page represent a sample of the student teaching packet available in the Field Placement Office at SUNY Oswego, located at 252 Wilber Hall.  These materials are made available for you to view materials required for student teaching.  You must however go to the Field Placement Office as soon as possible to fill out the required paperwork (index card), so that the preparations for your placement can begin. This paperwork provides important information so that you can begin to plan for your important experiences in the schools.  This information does not supplant the information you will be given at the Field Placement Office, so plan to visit that Office as soon as possible.

For example, if you plan to Student Teach during the Fall 2012 semester, then the application packet is made available by December 1, 2011 and your application is due within 2 weeks of the Spring 2012 semester. And, if you plan to Student Teach during the Spring 2013 semester, then the application packet is made available by May 1, and is due within the first two weeks of the Fall 2012 semester.

The list of materials below is taken from an actual student teaching packet. Use this information to begin the planning process.
