Purpose of the Handbook

The goal of this handbook is to facilitate communication among field experience students, their cooperating teachers, and the university faculty. It is intended to provide an introduction to the initial or introductory field experience in the teacher preparation programs offered at Kean University and an overview of the multiple roles and responsibilities of the people involved. The set of guidelines that follow supports the introductory clinical experiences which are central to the development of informed, dynamic professionals and is intended to be helpful to students, their cooperating teachers and the faculty who work with the prospective teacher. It may be used to answer questions and to provide general structure and context to the introductory field experience.
