Ten Ways to Improve Student Teaching: A Case Study.
Woolever, Roberta
The following recommendations for improving the student teaching experience are presented: (1) Select cooperating teachers for their excellence as classroom teachers; (2) Place student teachers in schools and with cooperating teachers that share the educational orientation of their college; (3) Place at least five student teachers in each school; (4) Allocate a minimum of one semester for the supervised student teaching experience; (5) Minimize the gap between theory learned in the college classroom and practical application in the school classroom; (6) Require cooperating teachers to participate in inservice courses in the area of teacher training; (7) Allow cooperating teachers to help determine what will be taught in methods classes; (8) Establish identical evaluation criteria for use by both the cooperating teacher and college supervisor; (9) Require that supervisors of student teachers be college faculty members rather than graduate assistants; and (10) Lighten the research and publication load of the college supervisor.
