Role of the Classroom Teacher in the Student Teaching Program. Report of the Classroom Teachers National Study Conference.
This report is a summary of ideas and concerns expressed by participants in a November, 1969, conference on the rights and responsibilities of the classroom teacher in the improvement of student teaching programs. Its emphasis is on the need for further clarification of procedures, functions, and lines of responsibility of the various groups involved in such cooperative programs (i.e., institutions, associations, and personnel--particularly cooperating teachers and college supervisors). Urging a more balanced sharing of decisionmaking powers among these groups, and the elevation of the status and working conditions of cooperating teachers to a position commensurate with the responsibility placed upon them, the report outlines trends that promise to bring needed changes and recommends various ways by which professional associations at national, state, and local levels may cooperate to facilitate such change. Included with these recommendations are materials which illustrate actions which have already been taken (e.g., negotiated agreements, policy statements, and legislation representing various groups and sections of the country) and which may serve as helpful guidelines for those desiring to implement recommendations of the report.
