I think it is perfectly fine to do what you did with your other student
teacher. I always start mine with one class and let them have that for a
couple weeks, then add another, etc.
Also, I agree with you, that I would NEVER have a student teacher just teach
my lessons. I would hate it if someone else did that to me. They are
welcome to look at mine as resources, but I show them other resources, too,
and encourage them to find their own ideas. When in real life will they
ever just do someone else's lesson (unless they only sub)?
I have mine turn in an outline at least a week ahead, and then their "real"
lesson plans TWO days ahead, so that I can read them and then discuss with
them, then they can revise and I can look over the "second draft" again
before they teach it. That works pretty well.
