Cooperating Teachers Resources
As a cooperating teacher for a student teacher in the UW Oshkosh Professional Education Program, you play an important role in developing students into teachers.
Cooperating teachers working with student teachers from UW Oshkosh must meet the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction code requirements, including completion of a course or seminar in supervision of student teachers. This course can be taken online or in the classroom, with several module options.
Cooperating teachers or current UW Oshkosh students can find lesson plans through the Education Materials Center in Polk Library.
Donors.org is a simple way to provide students in need with resources that our public schools often lack. At this not-for-profit website, teachers submit project proposals for materials or experiences their students need to learn. These ideas become classroom reality when concerned individuals, whom we call Citizen Philanthropists, choose projects to fund.
Proposals range from "Magical Math Centers" ($200) to "Big Book Bonanza" ($320), to "Cooking Across the Curriculum" ($1,100). Any individual can search such proposals by areas of interest, learn about classroom needs and choose to fund the project(s) they find most compelling. In completing a project, donors receive a feedback package of student photos and thank-you notes, and a teacher impact letter.
