Thank you Cooperating Teachers for your dedication to the IUE! You make the difference in our students’ experience.

IUE Student Teaching Handbook

The IUE Student Teaching Handbook (PDF) describes all roles, expectations and policies pertinent to teacher candidates, cooperating teacher and supervisors. The information contained in this handbook is under continuous revision and should be considered supplemental to more specific guidelines that may be established by individual UW System institutions’ programs. Any policies and procedures specific to UW System institutions’ programs will be conveyed to you by the IUE student’s supervisor.
