Student Teaching Assignments The University will assign student teachers to selected schools or professional development cen- ters in Illinois during regular semesters. Personnel of the Office of Clinical Experiences and Certification Processes, in cooperation with the head of the student’s major department or school, make the student teaching assignments and perform procedures related to student teaching. Teacher candidates may not self-place. Student teachers are assigned only to classrooms that have regularly employed full time and fully qualified teachers. Assignments are not made to a school in which the student teacher is concurrently employed as a teacher. A student teacher should not earn academ- ic credit or receive a salary or an income for the same teaching experience. During this period in the school, the student teacher works with one or more cooperating teachers who are responsible for teaching a specif- ic group or groups of pupils. These cooperating teachers, along with the college supervisors, have responsibility for guiding and evaluating the work of the student teacher. During this experience, the student becomes a member of the school staff and of the community in which he or she is working. Any student who has a prolonged illness or temporary disability and who is unable to continue in his/her student teaching assignment should con- sult with the Director of the Office of Clinical Experiences. A clearance from a physician will be required stating that the student is again able to continue in his/her student teaching assignment without any contingencies.

106 T E The Director of Clinical Experiences, upon the recommendation of the college supervisor, chair- person, or director of the student’s major depart- ment or school, may remove a student from the assignment or require a student to do additional work and continue student teaching until the stu- dent is sufficiently competent to be recommended for certification. Entitlement for certification is not an automatic procedure. Student teaching assignments begin and end on the dates indicated in the student’s official notice of assignment. Ordinarily, the student is expected to follow the school calendar of the school in which student teaching is done insofar as vacations and school holidays are concerned. Changes in dates involved in an assignment must receive the prior permission of the Director of Clinical Experiences. A teacher education candidate for initial certifi- cation must earn a grade of C or better in student teaching in order for the Dean of the College of Education to recommend that the Evaluations Office send to the candidate the proper documenta- tion to apply for the appropriate Illinois Teaching Certificate to be issued by the Illinois State Board of Education.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
