Belief and Judgment "Policies" in Student Teaching: Institutional Differences and the Distribution of Knowledge.
Peterson, Gerald L.
Beliefs and judgment "policies" of student teachers, cooperating teachers, and college supervisors are examined. Results from a belief questionnaire and judgment task converged to indicate: (a) a large degree of shared belief and similarity in judgments of "good teaching" are present before student teaching begins, (b) institutional differences between cooperating teachers and college supervisors center around practical-academic views of educational authority, and (c) student teachers are oriented early toward a confrontation between idealized educational views and practical role demands. Findings suggest new programs in teacher education would benefit from scrutiny of the social and institutional framework within which student teaching occurs. (Author/JD)
