The student teacher will have a minimum of two reference letters from the PreK student teaching experience: One is written by the university supervisor and the other by the cooperating teacher. Both of the letters are due one month after the student teacher completes his or her directed teaching in a PreK setting. An example of a reference letter written using the INTASC/WSDL and NAEYC/DEC standards is included for review (Appendix I).
Reference Letters written by Cooperating Teacher should be:
- Typed on center letterhead if possible
- Signed and dated
- One copy given directly to the student and one sent to the Office of Field Experiences
