Student Teaching Orientation Session Information - Spring 2015

Student Teaching Handbook
Please print the handbook and place in a 3 ring binder. Be certain to bring this to orientation.


S.T. Orientation Materials - DO NOT PRINT UNTIL January 5th-Due to Revisions in Progress! Mrs. Fuqua will email when she is ready for you to print!!!

Print all materials in this folder and place in a notebook with your "Student Teaching Handbook". Please bring all materials with you to the orientation.


TN Academic Standards


TN Core




Common Core


The state has moved to full implementation of Common Core. The information you need is now referred to as the TN State Standards. All licensure areas are represented within this link. I recommend you review the standards prior to arriving at the orientation BUT prefer you print after the seminar and meeting with your CT when you are more familiar with what your placement entails.
