Teaching Competencies for Supervising Teachers.
Campbell, Lloyd P.; Williamson, John A.
This study determines some of the competencies a public school teacher should possess before being assigned a student teacher. Subjects in the study included a random sample of unversity faculty who supervise secondary student teachers, student teacher placement directors in public school districts, principals of secondary schools, and teachers in secondary schools who have supervised two or more student teachers. The research instrument was designed to reveal attitudes toward teacher competencies in five categories: classroom instruction, evaluation, human relations, planning, and professionalism. The primary finding of this study indicated that teachers who are to be assigned a student teacher must demonstrate their greatest competencies in the area of classroom instruction and human relations skills. Professionalism was ranked last by each of the four subject groups. (MJM)
