How much time is required for student teaching?

All day, each and every school day and more! If you discuss the time commitment with your peers who are presently student teaching, you will discover that student teaching involves teaching a full school day and then working evenings and weekends to plan, reflect, and prepare.

Student teaching requires the same time commitment as a full-time experienced teacher. Employment during student teaching is not advised. Other personal and social obligations should also be kept to a minimum during student teaching.

The only course that is taken during student teaching is the student teaching seminar. Please check with your department office on time and day of the week. Not all programs require this so check your requirement sheet(undergrads) and syllabus(grads)
