INFORMATION FOR TEACHER CANDIDATES
During clinical practice, Teacher Candidates apply the theories and instructional strategies
learned in your coursework. Your University Supervisor, Cooperating Teacher and On-Site
Liaison will provide you mentorship and guidance. Our main priority is your successful
professional development in your assigned clinical practice experience.
Teacher Candidate Responsibilities:
1.
Clinical Practice is considered a class. Be sure to register for the appropriate clinical
practice, EDMS 571 or EDMS 572 before registration deadline. Candidates failing to
register for clinical practice will be dropped from the roster, will receive No Credit for
the experience, and will jeopardize their standing in the program.
2.
Teacher Candidates must pass the CBEST and CSET prior to program admission. On
rare occasions, Candidates may be granted a conditional admission to the program.
However, Candidates must pass all sections of the CSET in order to start clinical practice
II. State program standards prohibit clinical practice II until CSET is passed. If it
becomes necessary to complete clinical practice II in another semester, the Candidate will
be required to re-register for that semester.
3.
Teacher Candidates are assigned clinical practice placements by the Clinical Practice
Coordinator. Candidates cannot under any circumstances make placement arrangements
or changes on their own.
4.
Attend a co-teaching training in order to be prepared to co-teach with your Cooperating
Teacher during clinical practice.
5.
Your Supervisor will contact you with your clinical practice assignment during the first
week of classes and establish a schedule of assignments and observations. Please,
provide a current address and phone number to School of Education Educational Services
which will enable your Supervisor to contact you in a timely manner.
6.
Most correspondence is electronic and will be sent to your CSUSM email account. Be
sure to check it regularly or to have your mail forwarded to your preferred email account.
7.
After the initial contact with your Cooperating Teacher has been made by the Supervisor,
plan on attending with your Cooperating Teacher the “Getting the Partnership Started”
session arranged by the On-Site Liaison at the school site.
8.
Confer regularly with your Cooperating Teacher, On-Site Liaison and Supervisor to
discuss your program requirements, the Teacher Performance Expectations, your
university schedule and other appropriate topics.
9.
Once you are in clinical practice full-time, adhere to your Cooperating Teacher's contract
hours. Arrive on time. Be available to remain after school to plan, attend staff meetings,
in-services, parent conferences, and other school functions, such as "Back to School
Night", "Open House", and IEP’s.

10.
Be sure to advise your Cooperating Teacher if and when an absence becomes necessary.
Candidates will be required to make-up absences.
11.
When doing clinical practice, Teacher Candidates will follow the district calendar for
vacation days, not the university. In some cases, this could put the clinical practice
beyond the university semester’s end. Candidates will be expected to stay to complete the
assignment.
12.
You will be expected to write lesson plans for your formal observations by your
Supervisor. You should become familiar with the specific grade level curriculum that
your Cooperating Teacher uses for teaching the academic standards so that you are
prepared to plan lessons that use the curriculum that teach the academic standards.
13.
Teacher Candidate performance on the Professional Dispositions is evaluated during
clinical practice. Candidates should become familiar with the MS Professional
Dispositions rubric.
14.
Teacher Candidate performance on the TPEs is evaluated during clinical practice.
Candidates should become familiar with the California Standards for the Teaching
Profession: Resources for Professional Practices and the full texts of the Teacher
Performance Expectations.
15.
Teacher Candidates must meet all TPEs by the end of clinical practice II. Candidates may
meet the following TPES in either clinical practice I or clinical practice II: TPE 1A,
Subject Matter Instruction; TPE 6A, Dev. Appropriate Teaching Practices K-3; TPE 6B,
Dev. Appropriate Teaching Practices 4-8; TPE 6D, Special Education; TPE 7, Teaching
English Learners; TPE 14, Educational Technology have been met in clinical practice I.
If these are not able to be met in clinical practice II and they were met in the clinical
practice I, the Supervisor of clinical practice II must check “meets” and refer in the notes
that they were met in clinical practice I. This applies only to these TPEs.
16.
If you are experiencing difficulty in your clinical practice placement, communicate with
your Supervisor immediately about it. Your Supervisor is your mentor and advocate.
17.
At the conclusion of the clinical practice, you will participate in a final meetingconference with your Supervisor, Cooperating Teacher and On-Site Liaison to debrief the
clinical practice experience and sign the evaluations. Your Supervisor will prepare your
clinical practice evaluations in consultation with your Cooperating Teacher. Your final
evaluations include the TPE form, Clinical Practice Summary and Professional
Dispositions. All evaluation scores will be posted and accessible on Taskstream.
18.
Your Supervisor will issue a Statement of Concern if consistent and/or serious concerns
arise. (Please refer to the SOC Guidelines & Form for procedure). This procedure will
assist you in taking the necessary steps for improvement.

CLINICAL PRACTICE PLACEMENT POLICY
CSUSM-SOE policy requires that all Teacher Candidates complete their field work in a public
school setting. A public school setting is defined as one of the following: traditional public
school or a public charter school. The only exception is a private school that receives public
funding for specific services to public school students with special needs, as defined in an IEP.
There are no other exceptions.
This policy ensures that Candidates fully experience the dynamics of public education.
The following lists the minimum requirements for all School of Education programs. Individual
programs may implement and maintain additional requirements.
Clinical Practice I Requirements
In order for a Teacher Candidate to be placed in a clinical practice setting for coursework and/or
field experience purposes and be assigned a University Supervisor, the following requirements
must be met.
A. Registration in a clinical practice course (EDMS 571, EDMI 571, EDSS 571, EDMX
571, EDMS 573).
B. CTC certificate of clearance.
C. Tuberculin Clearance.
D. Concurrent (special education) candidates and any student completing CPI and CPII in
the same semester (ICP and MS part time): successful completion of basic skills and
subject matter competency tests.
In order for a Teacher Candidate to begin Clinical Practice I, the following requirements must be
met:
E. Successful completion of all first semester courses with a grade of C+ or better.
F. Satisfactory progress in the TPEs as determined by the individual program.
Clinical Practice II Requirements
In order for a Teacher Candidate to be placed in a clinical practice setting for coursework and/or
field experience purposes and be assigned a University Supervisor, the following requirements
must be met by the end of the candidate’s first semester in the full-time program or by the end of
the candidate’s third semester in a part-time program.
A. Registration in a clinical practice course (EDMS 572, EDMI 572, EDSS 572, EDMX
572, EDMS 573).

WRITING LESSON PLANS DURING CLINICAL PRACTICE
Each Teacher Candidate is responsible for working together with his/her Cooperating Teacher to
plan and implement lessons during clinical practice. The Teacher Candidate should plan all
lessons, including the ones observed by the University Supervisor, in collaborative co-teaching
planning sessions. The Teacher Candidate will write a lesson plan for each of the lessons
observed by the University Supervisor. The Teacher Candidate will provide the University
Supervisor and Cooperating Teacher a copy of the written lesson plan in advance, prior to
teaching the lesson.
The University Supervisor and the Cooperating Teacher will monitor the lessons that the Teacher
Candidate teaches, provide feedback on the lesson plan and advice on how to improve lesson
effectiveness. The University Supervisor will debrief lessons observed with the Teacher
Candidate and provide feedback on Teacher Candidate performance in relation to the TPEs.
Depending on the particular lesson, teaching methods may include direct instruction, cooperative
learning, inquiry, discussion, concept attainment, and concept generalization, which involve
students in a variety of ways.
When writing your lesson plan, remember to consider the following:
Learner Outcome: What is the purpose of the lesson?
 What should the student know or be able to do as a result of this lesson?
 Which standards am I teaching to?
 What are the lesson objectives?
Procedure: What is the best way to teach the learners?
 How should the lesson be presented?
 Any adaptive instruction/learning accommodations needed?
 What resource material would support this lesson?
 What monitoring and adjusting techniques could be used?
 How much time will be needed?
Co-Teaching: How will we use co-teaching to enhance and differentiate instruction?
 Which co-teaching approach(es) should we use?
 Which role will each co-teaching partner play?
Assessment: What measures would be reflective of students’ learning?
 What assessment measure should be used?
