A Comparative Study of Student Teaching in Speech in Illinois Secondary Schools--1966-1967.
Galvin, Kathleen Malone
The purpose of this study was to compare current student teacher preparation programs and practices with demands made of beginning speech teachers in Illinois. A questionnaire designed to gather recommendations on ways to prepare speech teachers for the actual teaching situation was sent to 159 student teachers from 20 Illinois colleges and 183 beginning speech teachers; the responses were analyzed. Respondents from both groups agreed that student teachers should (1) have introductory courses in all areas of speech and a general speech major or a specialization in one area of speech, (2) have a minor area, preferably English, (3) take a course in radio, TV, and film and participate in collegiate speech extracurricular activities, (4) student teach in large schools, if possible, (5) student teach in basic and advanced speech classes, and in a second area, preferably English, and work with extracurricular speech programs, (6) student teach in fall, winter, or early spring, (7) attend faculty meetings and weekly speech related seminars, and (8) be supervised and observed by a member of the college speech department every 2 weeks.
