                    Student Teaching Placement Interview Questionnaire

In order to help you prepare for student teaching and to provide information to the UMF
supervisors it is important that you take time to complete the three parts of this questionnaire.
After you complete Parts I and II you will reflect on the information and complete Part III by
creating an Action Plan based on the information from Parts I and II. You will use this Action
Plan as you begin your student teaching experience and revise it throughout student teaching.

You need to complete the three parts of the questionnaire electronically and bring hard
copies to your interview with the UMF supervisor. You will find this information at:
http://fieldservices.umf.maine.edu/Student_teach_homepage.php

Part I addresses the Maine Standards for Initial Certification, to which all of your professional
courses relate. You are asked to identify for each of the ten Standards one artifact that shows
your best work in meeting each Standard and note in what class or experience the artifact was
produced and how the artifact connects to the Standard. You may use an artifact for more than
one Standard. An example:
