A teacher candidate should present the cooperating teacher with all lesson plans (MoPTA model or the equivalent of) for the forthcoming week each Friday prior to the week the plans will be implemented for approval. This will allow for review and approval by the cooperating teacher. This is for all lessons, not just those being officially observed. Once the plans are approved by the cooperating teacher, the teacher candidate will then send an electronic copy of the lesson plans to the university supervisor no later than the Sunday prior to the implementation of the plans at 11:59 p.m. This practice will continue until the cooperating teacher and University supervisor agree that the teacher candidate has demonstrated a level of competence without a negative impact on the quality of instruction in the classroom. At this point in time, a short daily lesson planning template can be utilized. The shorter daily lesson plan will also be turned in each Friday prior to the week the plans will be implemented for approval by the cooperating teacher and to the university supervisor the Sunday before implementation by 11:59 p.m.
