The Cooperating Teacher in the Teacher Corps Design.
Gromfin, Annette; Van Brunt, Vida L.
This handbook, which represents the thinking of cooperating teachers on a number of issues important to all Teacher Corps programs, provides an overview of the area of concern of cooperating teachers in working with interns. Part 1 describes the role of the cooperating teacher and provides guidelines for a smooth induction of interns into the classroom and for the evaluation of the teaching experience. Part 2 presents some guidelines for cooperating teachers and team leaders, including some for practical application and some that point out to the interns areas to observe in the classroom. Part 3, "Nuggets of Wisdom" offers some suggestions concerning the physical organization of the class and negative versus positive comments in the classroom. Part 4 defines the team leader's role in relation to Teacher Corps and presents some specific duties of the team leader. Some hypothetical situations, presented for consideration, and a list of reminders conclude this handbook. (PD)
