Support for Student Teacher Stress.
This paper compares the stress of inservice teachers and preservice student teachers. The situation of student teachers is compared to that of cultural anthropologists in the field. This paradigm aids student teachers to objectify and to cope with the stresses and strains of their own fieldwork. The student teaching practicum is viewed as a type of support group wherein fledglings seek help and profit from their peers. Trained by this model, beginning teachers are more apt to identify and reach out for similar on-the-job support. A cycle of reflective discussion and field activities engenders renewed courage, hope, and determination. (Author/JD)
