Roles and Relationships in Student Teaching: A Role-Play Activity.
Moses, Jeewa R.
This role-play activity is designed for use by teacher educators in a general or content area methods class to help education majors become knowledgeable of role expectations in the student teaching experience and build good interpersonal role relationships. Students conduct library research and interviews concerning role expectations, use the information obtained to carry out 1 of 13 roles in a role-play activity, and describe how s/he felt playing the role. Role incumbents include: college supervisor, student teacher, cooperating teacher, teacher's aide, counselor, librarian, secretary, custodian, principal, assistant principal, reading specialist, mother, and father. Participants are grouped to solve case studies at different levels of school (elementary, middle, junior high, senior high, and developmental center). Five role play scenarios are presented, dealing with a student teaching conference, a parent-teacher conference, discipline, decision making, and priorities of school staff. The paper includes questions that students can use in interviewing role incumbents and questions that instructors can use in debriefing participants. (Contains 39 references.) (JDD)
