Role Conflict in Student Teaching.
Prokop, Manfred
A student teacher is often liable to be placed in a conflictive situation between faculty consultants and cooperating teachers who have widely differing conceptions of the role of the ideal teacher. None of the possible responses of a student teacher are conducive to effective learning, especially the decision to "get by." This conflict can be avoided by the adoption of several measures. The supervisory team should be quite explicit with each other and the student teacher about their role ideals; overwhelming role dissension should result in a rematch of supervisors. The consequences of enacting certain roles should be made clear to the student teacher. The student teacher should then be allowed to enact these roles experimentally in a nonevaluative atmosphere and ultimately be allowed to choose and practice the teacher role which is most congruent with himself.
