Understanding Student Teaching reveals the realities of teaching while offering practical strategies for success in the classroom. It presents case studies and student teacher narratives as well as discussions of ethics in teaching, the challenges of teaching in culturally diverse classrooms, and ways to avoid or deal with common problems in teaching. A significant feature of this work is its examination of the expectations of cooperating teachers and how they affect student teaching. Although the relationship between a cooperating teacher and a student teacher is critical for a successful student teacher experience, this topic is rarely addressed in books on student teaching. 'sunde's volume is an essential reference for those interested on how to make student teaching less arduous and more meaningful.
