Getting Ready for My Student Teacher’s First Day

My student teacher starts with my class tomorrow. Therefore, in order to facilitate a smooth transition (and the earliest possible start-date for her to begin teaching lots of lessons) with a gradual release, I prepared an observation form for her to use during the first 1-2 weeks that she’s with me. (The form follows below. It’s only for one day’s worth of time and therefore needs to be duplicated if you wish to use this form for more than one day, at a time, with your student teachers.)
