ANALYSIS OF PATTERNS OF STUDENT TEACHING.
CONNOR, WILLIAM H.; SMITH, LOUIS M.
RESEARCH WAS UNDERTAKEN WITH THE OBJECTIVE OF GAINING A PRELIMINARY UNDERSTANDING OF SOME OF THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF CONSEQUENCES THAT OCCUR IN THE EDUCATION OF TEACHERS AS A RESULT OF DIFFERENT PATTERNS IN THE ORGANIZATION OF THE STUDENT TEACHING EXPERIENCE. THIS REPORT IS AN EFFORT TO DESCRIBE AN ON-GOING PATTERN AND TO DEVELOP MODELS OF ITS FUNCTIONING. THE METHODOLOGY KNOWN AS PARTICIPANT OBSERVATION WAS UTILIZED. EACH STUDENT TEACHER WHO PARTICIPATED PREPARED A FIELD NOTEBOOK IN WHICH HE BRIEFLY RECORDED EACH DAY'S ACTIVITIES ALONG WITH ANY REACTIONS TO THE VARIOUS SITUATIONS IN WHICH HE FOUND HIMSELF. THE INVESTIGATORS SPENT 20 WEEKS DURING A FALL SEMESTER OBSERVING THE 12 APPRENTICE TEACHERS IN 15 ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. THE RESULTS OF THE STUDY ARE ORGANIZED INTO FOUR SECTIONS AND NINE CHAPTERS. CHAPTER ONE STATES BRIEFLY THE NATURE AND APPROACH TO THE PROBLEM. CHAPTERS TWO, THREE, AND FOUR DESCRIBE THE APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM AT CITY TEACHER'S COLLEGE. CHAPTER FIVE DEALS WITH SOME OF THE LITERATURE CONCERNING VIEWS ON TEACHER TRAINING. CHAPTERS SIX AND SEVEN ATTEMPT TO DEVELOP TWO MODELS OF TEACHING--(1) AS INQUIRY, AND (2) THE PSYCHOMOTOR ANALOGY. CHAPTER 8 DEALS WITH OCCUPATIONAL SPECIALIZATION, WHILE CHAPTER NINE OFFERS AN INTERPRETATION OF FUNCTIONAL ANALYSIS. NOTES ON THE METHODOLOGY OF THE STUDY AND THE ANALYSIS OF THE FIELD NOTES ARE APPENDED. (AUTHOR/IM)
