The Opinions of Northeast Missouri Social Studies Teachers Related to Student Teacher Placement and Evaluation.
Kitts, William H.
This study attempts to identify the opinions of social studies cooperating teachers toward student teacher placement, role relationships, evaluation, and inservice education. The hypothesis for this study was that northeast Missouri social studies cooperating teachers' opinions toward student teacher placement and evaluation would indicate that substantial changes are necessary in existing programs. A 31-item survey instrument was employed to elicit cooperating teachers' responses to four research questions dealing with placement, role relationships, evaluation, and inservice training. The study surveyed 464 cooperating teachers employed in junior and senior high schools, and selected at random a sample of teachers from the service area of Northeast Missouri State University. The data obtained were tabulated using two different configurations: (a) numbers and percentages for males, females, and totals; and (b) numbers and percentages according to the four school enrollment categories. The responses to each item were then analyzed in terms of their implications for teacher education partnerships. Responses indicated that changes should be made in the programs. (Also included are tables and figures depicting teacher responses.) (Author/JS)
