Pitfalls and Planning in Student Teaching.
Heywood, John
In this book, information is provided to assist student teachers in planning and implementing lessons, at the secondary school level, through the use of advance organizers. Advance organizers are described as a form of mediating response which precedes a major learning task and provides meaning, structure, and organization to the task and links old and new knowledge. The first chapter gives examples of advance organizers and discusses their usefulness. Each of the succeeding chapters is preceded by an examination question and extracts from student teacher responses, acting as advance organizers for the topic considered in the chapter. These chapters address: (1) discipline; (2) motivation; (3) perception; (4) concepts and cognitive development; (5) learning objectives and strategies; (6) problem solving; (7) the curriculum and the planning and implementation of lessons; and (8) student appraisal and student teacher self-appraisal. Educational theories supporting the use of advance organizers are discussed in each chapter, and anecdotes from student teachers are included. Appended are criteria for evaluating pupil and student teacher progress and a 20-item bibliography. (FG)
