We have a student teaching program at Berea. It is a one credit course for juniors and seniors. Students are not assigned a subject but an elementary classroom, and switches between teachers each six weeks. The teacher involves them in many areas of the classroom; teaching, grading, supervising recess, observing.
The largest portion of their grade is determined by the supervising teacher with the remaining portion coming from a research paper and book reports.
For a longer explaination of this credit I suggest listening to Developing Tomorrow’s Teachers by Ken Ranck. It is available on the Dock.
