All UNC University Supervisors are required to have a school-based meeting at the beginning of the semester with each of the cooperating teachers with whom they have been assigned to work. If there are more than one cooperating teacher in the same school, a group meeting would be most appropriate. The purpose of the meeting is to review: cooperating teacher’s, candidate’s, and supervisor’s roles and responsibilities for the semester; packets with evaluation rubrics and forms; online handbooks, guidelines for addressing candidate concerns/dispositions; and mentoring/coaching strategies.  Cooperating Teacher should be informed about the guidelines and resources for mentoring and coaching beginning teachers.
