Using Discourse Analysis To Understand The Relationships And Practices Of Pre-Service Co-Teachers, Toni Strieker, Megan Adams, Woong Lim, Marcia Wright

Georgia Educational Researcher

Early in 2016, the Council on Accreditation of Educator Providers (CAEP) (caepnet.org, 2016) published a new set of standards that called for increased collaboration of university-school partners by means of co-construction clinical experiences.
