      I had a student teacher in high school so it probably looks quite different than it would for elementary, but this is what worked really well for us: She first observed one period that I taught and then she taught the next one while I observed. As she got more comfortable I sometimes left the room so she could experience having her the classroom to herself. We would sit down once a week to lesson plan together and discuss how that week went. She had complete control of the period she taught - grading their work and tests - for the period of time she was the student teacher. It was a great experience for both of us and the students loved it too! Hope that helps a little.
