All talks happen on Fridays at 4:00 PM (Eastern) in Harkness Chapel, Classroom, and are open to the public unless noted otherwise. 

About the Talks

Jason Delfing: "Characteristics of Effective Cooperating Teachers"

Student teaching is the most important and influential part of a preservice teacher's undergraduate education. Yet that process is entrusted to a cooperating teacher (CT) with whom they have often spent very little time and can be completely unaffiliated with the teacher education program (TEP). This study explored the characteristics of an effective cooperating teacher from the perspectives of the involved members; student teachers, cooperating teachers, and university supervisors (AKA the Triad).

Samantha Webber and Erin Hopkins: "Music Access for Students in Self-Contained Special Education Classrooms"

We conducted a mixed-methods survey to determine the extent to which elementary school students in self-contained special education classrooms in Ohio have access to music services at school. Results indicated a number of contributing structural and attitudinal factors. The findings of this study hold implications for equity in policy and practice, teacher preparation, and collaboration within schools.

We strongly encourage all campus visitors to be fully vaccinated—including boosters if eligible. All visitors and members of the university may choose whether to wear masks indoors on campus, unless they are in clinical settings, including the dental clinic, or have received university approval for an exception. We encourage everyone in the campus community to respect individual choices to wear a mask. Please remember that those with COVID-19 symptoms should stay home. Learn more about CWRU's COVID-19 response
