Summary

From the first steps of student teaching to the first teaching position, Strategies for Successful Student Teaching is a complete guide for pre-service teachers. This book moves pre-service teachers through their practicum experiences sequentially, beginning with the question, Why do you want to be a teacher? It then progresses to the creation of a portfolio, tips for the job search, and a checklist for setting up a first classroom. The book has a hands-on approach, featuring practical activities that build on theory taught in methods courses and can be used in the field with college supervisors to strengthen the link between theory and practice. Each chapter begins with a lesson plan that serves as an overview for the chapter, and each plan is linked to teaching competencies and themes. This book is a comprehensive resource that offers a variety of activities and ACTions for each chapter, allowing student teachers and supervisors to choose activities that fit the context of the student teacher's placement. This book can be used with A Handbook of Techniques and Strategies for Coaching Student Teachers, 2/e, also written by Pelletier, as companion books either for the teacher working with the student teacher at the school site or the university supervisor. Although each book is designed to stand alone, together these books create a powerful set of tools that will enhance a teacher education program, provide a cohesive program that encourages communication, reflection, and many practical activities.
