Teaching in the Elementary School: A Guide for Student Teachers.
Tisdale, Pamela Cochrane; Welch, Frances Clayton
This handbook for the elementary school student teacher discusses some specific topics relevant to student teachers. Each of the eight chapters begins with a list of objectives to be achieved, discusses the section's topic, and concludes by offering activities for the student teacher, based on the chapter's focus. Chapter 1 includes a discussion of the transition from the role of student to that of student teacher. In Chapter 2, the people who work in a school and the environment in which they work are discussed. Elementary school student characteristics are the subject of Chapter 3. Chapter 4 discusses the elementary school curriculum and learning resources. In Chapter 5, information is included about how teachers assess skills pupils have mastered, thereby enabling them to place students in a skill sequence. Chapter 6 discusses planning and how to facilitate learning by implementing planning. Discipline is the subject of Chapter 7, which details effective techniques that enable teachers to manage student behavior. The last chapter talks about the transition from student teacher to teacher. (JM)
