Field Experience (Practicum Three Week)

Thank you for serving as a university supervisor for Longwood University's teacher candidates.

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 1-20 and 32-43 specifically pertain to Practicum Three Week field experience placements.  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:
