The Field Experience Placements Handbook (pdf) provides an overview of the varying roles of the university supervisor, cooperating teacher, and teacher candidate. It also describes the general and specific journal entry requirements the teacher candidate must complete, based on opportunities provided by the cooperating teacher. Handbook pages 1-30 specifically pertain to Practicum One Week field experience placements.
