Clinical educators, formerly known as cooperating teachers, are vital to the success of our students during their student teaching experience. If you are a secondary teacher interested in mentoring a UD English Education teacher candidate, the first step is to notify your principal and/or school district Human Resources Office. Administrators can then connect with UD's Office of Clinical Studies.
If a student teacher is placed with you, your candidate's field instructor will host a meeting in the fall with you and your candidate to review requirements and expectations. Our Student Teaching Handbook and formative assessment form are linked below.
