WKU Co-Teaching


Thank you for agreeing to supervise a WKU student teacher during the Fall 2017 semester.  Per state regulation 16 KAR 5:040 Section 2 (5), all supervising teachers of student teachers must complete the three (3) part Co-Teach Training prior to the student’s arrival into their classroom. 

Co-Teaching Defined

"Co-Teaching is when two educators Co-Plan, Co-Instruct, and Co-Assess a group of students with diverse needs in the same general education classroom"

Information on the new cooperating teacher requirements (16 KAR 5:040) can be found at:

 Part A:  Basic responsibilities of a cooperating teacher supervisor (Edmodo Quiz)

Please see the attached document for completing Part A.

 Part B:  Best practice in supporting a student teacher (KACTE Developed Training)

As a participant, you will self-enroll in the course (as a student).                                           

Tutorial: How to Self-Enroll in a Canvas Course (2 minutes, 52 seconds)

Teachers must complete all of the modules and provide the required information at the end of the training.  Confirmation emails will automatically be sent to WKU.  Certificates are typically emailed at the end of each month.

Part C:  Effective assessment of the student teacher – The WKU Student Teaching Handbook is only intended for review.  https://www.wku.edu/educatorservices/student_teaching/documents/st_handbook.pdf Please familiarize yourself with the new forms and responsibilities.  There is no quiz for Part C.
