Analyze the Role of a Teacher. Module. A Pre-Student Teaching Field Experience for Pre-Service Teachers.
Browning, Ruth A.
This module is designed to aid preservice teachers in their first student teaching experience. The module is composed of five learning experiences which enable participants to assess their feelings toward teaching by focusing on three module components: (1) getting to know the students; (2) analyzing the role and activities of a teacher; and (3) assisting a classroom teacher. Student teachers can proceed at their own rate and evaluate their progress at each step. The first learning experience prepares the student teacher to enter the school site as an observer and suggests questions and self-help techniques. The second, third, and fourth learning activities can be done together because they involve classroom practices: (1) observing classroom environment and student characteristics; (2) identifying the role of the teacher; and (3) assisting the teacher through suggested activities. Self-evaluation forms are provided. In the fifth learning experience, the student teacher analyzes and evaluates the mini-teaching performance in terms of individual attitudes, desire, and potential to become a teacher. Forms are provided for reactions of the student teacher, cooperating teacher, and university supervisor. (FG)
