A Proposed Program for Training of Effective Supervising Teachers at Ottawa University. Final Report.
Gladman, O. L.
This student teaching program was designed to strengthen communication and interpersonal relationships between the student teacher, the cooperating teacher, and the college supervisor. It was also planned to test the adaptability of an inner-city teacher training program to a rural environment (Ottawa) and to continue the pursuit of more effective student teacher training at Ottawa. A 2-week workshop brought the three types of school personnel together daily. During the first week, the supervising teachers met to confront issues related to effective teaching. Various video and audio materials were used, along with standard lectures. The second week was designed to allow the cooperating and student teachers to discuss various teaching techniques using miniteaching formats. A third week (spread out over the '72-73 fall term) included presentations by administrators, modulation diagnostic center personnel, classroom teachers, and college personnel. Results indicated that the students in the model program were quicker to express more positive and open feelings to their supervising teachers than students not in the program. (Three appendixes of data are presented.) (JB/CL)
