Student Teaching Handbook

Luther College Teacher Education Program Student Teaching

Becoming a teacher is a rewarding experience in which teachers influence the lives of K-12 students in multiple ways. The Education Department focuses on “Preparing Competent, Caring, and Inquisitive Teachers for Global Responsibility” as delineated further in our conceptual framework.

This Student Teaching handbook outlines the procedures leading to teacher licensure and guides teacher candidates through the various processes and requirements for student teaching. It should serve as a reference tool and contains information that will be helpful such as meeting information and application deadlines. This information will be referred to often as you progress through your student teaching experience.

If after reading this document questions still exist, students, cooperating teachers and Luther supervisors should seek assistance from Education Department faculty or staff.

The Education Department offices are located on the first floor of Koren. To make an appointment with a member of the Education Department, you may call or email them.  Faculty members often have a sign-up sheet for appointments on their office door.  Please reference the Luther College Faculty/Staff/Student directory for contact information.


The Education Department office is Koren 101.
