  3. As a member of the instructional team, what responsibilities will your supervising teacher take on?
  4. In what ways will the supervising teacher’s responsibilities differ from yours? In what ways will they be similar?
  5. What might be some productive ways for you and your supervising teacher to communicate about instructional matters?
