A Comparison of Student Teaching Performance of Students Who Have Taught as Teams and Students Who Have Taught Singly.
Allred, Wallace Earl
This study attempted to determine whether significant differences exist between the rated performance of student teachers working in teams and those working singly. Male and female trainees were also compared in these categories and the traditional or experimental teacher education programs in which they were enrolled. Forty-eight students preparing for secondary school teaching were randomly selected and further randomized into four groups containing equal numbers of men and women. Groups were assigned to one of the following programs: 1) traditional preparation, no student teaching; 2) traditional preparation, solo student teaching; 3) individualized preparation, solo student teaching; 4) individualized preparation, team teaching. The data were gathered in three categories: 1) performance in nine areas, recorded in videotaped lessons; 2) classroom interaction; and 3) self and cooperating teacher ratings on questionnaires. The data were subjected to analysis of variance and the mean scores adjusted for differences so that the pretest could be employed as a convariate in analyzing posttest data. Results indicated that team trainees from experimental programs were significantly more successful than traditional solo trainees in several areas. In the comparison of sex attitudes, men perceived their growth as being significantly greater than did their cooperating teachers. (MBM)
