The instructional flight was on the second landing when the student pilot ballooned on landing and attempted a go around. The instructor said the student over corrected and he took control of the airplane; however, he took over too late to recover and the airplane stalled, touched down and shot off the runway. The airplane hit a berm, the nose gear collapsed and the main gear sheared.
