Student Teaching: Problems and Promising Practices.
Griffin, Gary A., Ed.; Edwards, Sara, Ed.
The working conference "Student Teaching: Problems and Promising Practices" brought together experts representing three different role orientations: cooperating teachers, school system representatives, and teacher educators. Under discussion was the student teaching process and the nature of research that might contribute to its better understanding and improvement. Robert Hughes, Jr. presented a historical perspective of the student teaching experience in "Student Teaching: The Past as a Window to the Future." In "Student Teacher: Asset or Liability? An Assessment of Present Practice and Recommendations for the Future," Elizabeth Dillon-Peterson called attention to the role of the local school district in a student teaching program. William L. Hays, in "Satisfaction with the Student Teaching Experience: A Multiple Regression Approach," focused on research methodology to be used in a study of student teaching. Kevin Ryan's paper, "The Cooperating Teacher: Who? What? Why? When? How? and Whither?" directed thinking toward the cooperating teacher as a major factor in the training of student teachers. In "Student Teaching as Human Project: Pursuing Possibility in Schools," Maxine Greene offered a presentation on the nature of student teaching and the possibilities it has for affecting all of schooling. The substance of small group discussions which followed each presentation was synthesized by Gary A. Griffin for "Issues in Student Teaching: People, Interactions, Contexts." (JD)
