NIU graduates teachers from new program
DeKALB – Northern Illinois University teacher candidates and their co-teaching partners in DeKalb Dist. 428 celebrated the successes of a new teacher preparation model – the Professional Development School’s co-teaching model.
In the co-teaching model, an NIU teacher candidate is paired with a master teacher from a partner school district. The pair spends a full year collaborating on lesson plans, classroom management and student improvement.
Students had access to two instructors instead of one in the classroom and gained a full year of experience learning every aspect of a teacher’s work. This differs from a traditional student teaching model, where student teachers instruct a class for 16 weeks.
