Improving the Student Teaching Experience: A Cooperative Effort.
Kelly, Brian; Kelly, Noeline
Feedback was sought on the student teaching experience from student teachers, cooperating teachers, and university supervisors. Findings indicated: (1) All parties agreed on the worth of the experience; (2) Student teachers disagreed with university supervisors on the worth of required seminars, format of lesson plans, and time allotted to student teaching and the concurrent completion of university courses; (3) Student teachers and cooperating teachers agreed that supervisors should supervise in their teaching specialization and should visit more often; (4) Cooperating teachers enjoyed the experience but felt it was insufficiently recognized or rewarded by the school district; (5) Cooperating teachers were most uncomfortable in their multiple role of guide and friend and also evaluator; (6) Cooperating teachers were most critical of student teachers in classroom management; and (7) Supervisors felt that seminars were necessary, student teachers should not be taking courses while engaged in student teaching, and were in favor of relevant inservice programs for cooperating teachers.
