Manual for Use with Meet Your Cooperating Teacher.
Newlove, Beulah W.
The Teacher Personal Growth Materials, of which this manual is a part, were prepared in the belief that the teacher's feelings are an important component of her teaching and are therefore a legitimate concern of teacher education. Prospective teachers have many questions, usually unasked and unanswered, about their relationship with their cooperating teacher, and an attempt is made to identify these, with the help of a 12-minute slide presentation. It is intended for use with undergraduate elementary education majors and teacher aides. After a first showing, the students' concerns are discussed, then the slides are shown again to help formulate alternative solutions. The points raised include whether the student teacher should adapt to her cooperating teacher's expectations or go her own way, and what she should do when caught in crossfire between her cooperating teacher and her student teaching supervisor. The instructor should be able to tell students what the local regulations are concerning classroom practice, and also lead the way in bringing feelings into the open. The script of the slide presentation is included, together with details of available Teacher Personal Growth Materials. (The slide presentation is available from the Research and Development Center for Teacher Education, Univ. of Texas, Austin.) (MBM)
