Teacher Orientation Guides

These guides are intended to be given to field experience students during the first day they arrive in class or perhaps at your school's orientation for field experience students. Orientation guides can provide field experience students with a welcoming statement, the requirements for the field experience, an overview of your expectations as a mentoring teacher, descriptions of the classroom procedures, and your philosophy as a mentoring teacher. As you will see in the examples below, they may be as brief as one side of a page. Regardless of length, most teachers agree they are a handy tool for communicating expectations to field experience students, especially when your time for conferencing is very limited.
