THE SPECIAL CONTRIBUTION OF THE COLLEGE HOME ECONOMICS EDUCATION SUPERVISOR TO THE STUDENT TEACHING SITUATION.
DIRKS, MARIE; AND OTHERS
TEACHER EDUCATORS AT CORNELL UNIVERSITY, THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI, THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY, AND PURDUE UNIVERSITY IDENTIFIED THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE COLLEGE SUPERVISOR TO THE STUDENT TEACHING SITUATION BY MEANS OF THE CRITICAL INCIDENT TECHNIQUE. COLLEGE SUPERVISORS, SUPERVISING TEACHERS, AND STUDENT TEACHERS ACTIVELY ENGAGED IN THE STUDENT TEACHING PROGRAM DURING 1964-65 IN ALL FOUR INSTITUTIONS WERE ASKED TO REPORT BEHAVIORS WHICH MIGHT MAKE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SUCCESS OR FAILURE IN THE STUDENT TEACHING SITUATION. THE 454 USABLE REPORTS OF CRITICAL INCIDENTS WERE CATEGORIZED IN TERMS OF ROLES OF THE COLLEGE SUPERVISOR, THE DIRECTION OF CHANGE IN THE STUDENT TEACHING SITUATION, UNIQUENESS OR NONUNIQUENESS OF THE COLLEGE SUPERVISOR'S BEHAVIOR, AND THE IMPACT OF THE COLLEGE SUPERVISOR'S BEHAVIOR ON THE SUPERVISING TEACHER AND THE STUDENT TEACHER. THE COLLEGE SUPERVISORS ASSUMED THE INFORMATION OR JUDGMENT-GIVING ROLES MORE THAN ANY OTHER ALTHOUGH MULATING-GROWTH ROLE WAS REPORTED MANY TIMES. THEIR BEHAVIORS SEEMED EQUALLY IMPORTANT TO STUDENT TEACHERS AND SUPERVISING TEACHERS AND PRODUCED A DESIRED EFFECT MORE OFTEN THAN NOT. THEIR CONTRIBUTION WAS UNIQUE, AND THEY HAD MORE IMPACT ON THE STUDENT TEACHER THAN ON THE SUPERVISING TEACHER. NEED FOR SUPERVISORY ACTION OCCURRED MOST OFTEN IN THE AREAS OF STUDENT TEACHER SELF-CONCEPT, LESSON PLANNING, PROGRAM POLICIES AND REQUIREMENTS, AND RAPPORT WITH THE SUPERVISOR. FURTHER RESEARCH IS NEEDED TO DETERMINE WAYS TO MAXIMIZE COLLEGE SUPERVISOR CONTRIBUTION TO GROWTH OF PUBLIC SCHOOL SUPERVISING TEACHERS AND TO EXPLORE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING NONVISIT METHODS TO SUPERVISE STUDENT TEACHERS. A BIBLIOGRAPHY, GLOSSARY, AND CONTENT ANALYSIS OF SAMPLE CRITICAL INCIDENTS ARE INCLUDED. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "STUDIES IN HIGHER EDUCATION," NUMBER 94, JUNE 1967. (FP)
