Student Teaching Objectives: Their Importance and Achievement.
Gallemore, Sandra L.
The potential value of the student teaching experience was investigated by examining attitudes of student teachers, cooperating teachers, and university supervisors toward objectives and skills to be achieved during student teaching. A literature search revealed three broad categories of skills that should be acquired during student teaching: (1) instruction; (2) class management; and (3) personal and professional growth. Subjects of the study were 28 student teachers, 22 cooperating teachers, and 11 university supervisors. Results showed that student and cooperating teachers had significantly similar perceptions about the importance of class management objectives and about achievement of objectives in all categories. Student teachers and university supervisors had significantly similar perceptions about the importance of instruction objectives and about the achievement of class management objectives. Cooperating teachers and university supervisors had a statistically significant relationship only on the achievement of class management objectives. (FG)
