Pacing Guides: In-Class Demonstration Teaching

These are suggested guides to be used during demonstration teaching (DT or student teaching) to help the host teacher (HT) and clinical supervisor (CS) to pace the in-class demonstration teaching experience for the teacher candidate (TC) from start to finish.

Use these pacing guides to plan the clinical supervisor observations and evaluations. These pacing guides are to be used for general suggestions only. Adjust the schedule as necessary in close coordination with the teacher candidate's skills/needs, and host teacher's requirements to meet the needs of the students in the classroom.
