Field Experience (Practicum Three Week)

Thank you for serving as a cooperating teacher for one of Longwood University's teacher candidates.

The Field Experience Placements Handbook (pdf) provides an overview of the varying roles of the cooperating teacher, university supervisor, 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. If you do not already have Adobe Reader, visit http://get.adobe.com/reader to download the latest version so that you can access the handbook on the following website:
