Griffin, Gary A.; And Others
A descriptive study examined in detail the student teaching experience in terms of the characteristics and behaviors of cooperating teachers, student teachers, and university supervisors. The interactions, personal and professional, between and among these participants were analyzed, as well as the contexts of the schools and universities in which the student teaching was carried out. This executive summary of the inquiry is introduced by the presentation of a rationale statement, an overview of the problem of student teaching, a conceptualization of student teaching, and a set of research questions which guided the effort. Section 2 reports the methods and procedures used in conducting the study, with particular attention given to both quantitive and qualitative research modes. The sites and participants used in the study are described in section 3. Section 4 presents conclusions which emerged from the study. (JD)
