The indivisible faculty, takes over
from) there. Pisoni explained that their job
is to find positions for student teachers in
specific schools in their'district.
These professors also conduct classes
for the student teachers for University
credit. Their report is added to the
evaluation written by the * supervising
instructor assigned to each student
teacher in his repective school,
"Each faculty "co-ordinator is given-
about 30 students which he has to place inV
his area,".said Quick.
Occasionally a student teacher cannot,
be placed in his first choice area because
an opening cannot be found.for someone
with their qualifications.
"In such a case/-' Pisoni added, "the
faculty directors frequently swap
students to place them more satisfacr
Quick emphasized that the student
teaching office does all it can to accommodate requests, but- competition
from other universities also vying for
directed teaching positions somewhat
"Although about 90 per cent of the
student teachers are placed in their first
choice, excluding, local districts," said
Pisoni, "we can't possibly place everyone
, in their favored areas. Some eliminations
have to. be made.
"Elimination and priority' in
placement is usually determined by date
of graduation, marital status, nearness to
home and availability of a position in one's
major field of study," said Pisoni.
He explained that married couples
with children or students closest to their
graduation date are usually given priority.
"Also," he added, "whenever possible
we try to assign a student in or near his
home town so that he can save some
money by commuting."-
Quick stressed that applications have
to be .filed almost a year in advance to be
, assured a position in the semester desired.
"From now until Sept.8, we are accepting confirmations from students who
have previously applied for winter
semester," Pisoni said, "It is almost
virtually impossible to obtain a position
for next session without having filed an
application last semester-"
Students wanting to do their directed
teaching next year are advised by the
department to watch for the deadline date
for primary application to assure them*
selves of a placement.
