Power Relationships in the Student Teaching Triad.
Barrows, Linda K.
The power relationship between the student teacher, cooperating teacher, and the university supervisor is analyzed. This triadic relationship is commonly hierarchical with a superior cooperating teacher, an inferior student teacher, and a university supervisor playing only a tangential role that is frequently reduced to corroborating the opinions of the cooperating teacher. Four case studies are presented and discussed as they typify this traditional relationship. Revisions are suggested in the role of the supervisor and cooperating teacher as critics of the student teacher. (JD)
