A Nation-Wide Survey of the Supervision of English Student Teaching in Colleges and Universities. Interim Report.
Pennington, Donald R.
To survey current secondary school practices in the supervision of student teachers of English, ISCPET sent out questionnaires on this and other aspects of the student teaching program to 837 U. S. colleges and universities that prepare English teachers. Four aspects of English student teaching programs were emphasized in the survey--arrangements and facilities for student teaching, selection and duties of cooperating teachers, responsibilities of college supervisors, and attitudes of college and secondary school personnel toward the supervision program. Respondents were also asked to indicate what they believed to be the "ideal" practice. After the data from 465 respondents were received, tabulated, and analyzed, those areas in which current practices deviated statistically from ideal practices were determined, and recommendations for the improvement of supervisory programs of student teaching in English were made. (Tables indicating the qualities and conditions of present student teaching supervision practices and other aspects of the student teaching program are included.) (Author/JB)
