Level III field experience is the final step of the teacher preparation program for SHSU pre-service teachers. During the student teaching semester, Sam Houston teacher candidates are placed in a SHIPS school district for two 7-week placements. Some student teachers may have one 14-week placement. Candidates will gradually increase their involvement during each placement to full teaching responsibility, literally making a transition from student to teacher. Classroom mentor teachers and university supervisors share the responsibility of assessing and evaluating the student teacher's instructional and classroom management skills. Student teaching is completed during the final semester prior to graduation.
