A New Proposal for the Supervision of Student Teaching.
Anderson, Gary W.; Boop, Roger W.
Since behavioral change in the student teacher gravitates towards the supervising teacher (presently plagued by lack of role definition) and away from the college supervisor (who presently suffers from a lack of direction and specific objectives), a new role definition is needed for them both. Three professional people would be involved in this proposal of ideal supervision: the building coordinator, the college coordinator, and the public or private school supervising teacher. The new role of building coordinator includes the following functions: a) preparing supervising teachers to be more functional in the supervisory realm by conducting on-site workshops and/or seminars in order to present necessary skills and competencies to improve the effectiveness of the student teacher; b) working with all student teachers in a classroom setting; c) coordinating, preparing, and evaluating on-site course work for student teachers; and d) acting as liaison between supervising teacher, administrator, student teacher, community, and the college. Relieved of responsibility for observation and evaluation of the student teacher, the college coordinator will serve as a resource person to the student teachers, building coordinators, supervising teachers, and the university. The function of the supervising teacher will undergo little change. (JA)
