Abstract: This study was designed to provide an understanding of student teaching in the secondary school by focusing on the interactions of the participants. Specifically, the study proposed to identify, classify, and describe how one student teacher and her cooperating teacher made sense of their particular roles, the interactions that occurred, and how the interactions were affected by the setting. The naturalistic fieldwork methods of the participant observer were used to collect multi-modal data. Observations and informal interviews were recorded in field notes. Formal interviews were audio recorded, and conferences were video recorded. The goal of data analysis was the analytic description of the complex social interactions that occurred during student teaching.
