I’ve had a few pre-service teachers doing observation hours and student teaching with me the last few years, and I’ve been thinking a lot about how I can mentor them in the best way possible. I want to dedicate this post to resources that I collect that I believe can support a student teacher.

Annenburg videos: They are dated, but provide good teaching models for teachers, and include learning materials for the student teacher to use as they work with the videos.

Useful videos from Wisconsin about the modes of communication: http://wimedialab.org/worldlanguageassessment/video.htm
