Field Instructors

The field instructor plays a key support role in helping the intern develop standards-based practices in planning, teaching and assessment, and in becoming a fully participating member of the teaching profession. In addition, the field instructor supports the mentor teacher in problem solving and providing effective mentoring practices. The field instructor also works with the cluster leader, subject area leader, program coordinator and team leader to understand and communicate current program practices and policies, and is available to pass along information provided by course instructors about planning and other course requirements. Note: For field instructor information pertaining specifically to elementary or secondary levels and subject areas, please use your MSU NetID to login to the course management system.

All field instructors may be interested in visiting the ASSIST website, which includes downloadable observation tools.
