Developing Quality Fieldwork Experiences for Teacher Candidates

A Planning Guide for Educator Preparation Programs and District Partners

This planning guide, Developing Quality Fieldwork Experiences for Teacher Candidates, is designed to assist professionals within EPPs and local education agencies (LEAs) who are involved in teacher preparation to develop a common vocabulary and an informed method of planning fieldwork experiences for teacher candidates. The guide provides information for university faculty and school-based educators on defining and planning field experience strategies that are aligned, carefully sequenced, and practice based. These strategies aim to define roles and responsibilities of participants who can make meaningful contributions in developing the next generation of teachers.
