Problems in Student Teaching: Academic versus Non-Academic Subjects.
Campbell, Lloyd P.; Williamson, John A.
This study investigated selected problem areas in student teaching experienced by teachers of academic and nonacademic subjects. The Student Teacher Problems Inventory (STPI) was administered to 270 secondary education student teachers in the last week of their student teaching experience. The mean scores for each of the problem areas were compared and an analysis of variance revealed significant differences in the scores. Results showed that language arts and social science teachers consistently had more difficulty in certain problem areas than industrial arts and physical education teachers. Mathematics and foreign language teachers sometimes experienced more difficulty than the nonacademic teachers. Specific problem areas were discussed. (The report includes the STPI and two tables of statistical data.) (Author/BRB)
