Home Economics Student Teaching Connections: A Model. Strategies Designed to Prepare Pre-Service Home Economics Teachers for Their Student Teaching Experience.
Wyatt, Mary C.
The Student Teaching Connections Model has been designed specifically for aiding preservice home economics teachers in preparing for their student teaching assignment. The model has reference to the student teacher at two different stages: as a prospective student teacher, and in the actual student teaching role. In addition, the model consists of two primary components: Growth Experiences and Resource Elements. Growth Experiences involve activities that the student teacher will perform as they relate to the student teaching assignment. The Resource Elements component is comprised of constituents needed for the student teacher to complete the required activities. The Growth Experiences component contains seven primary Student Teaching Connections: the Home Economics Cooperating Teachers' Seminar, the Home Economics Student Teachers' Seminar Plan/Cover Letter, the Home Economics Pre-Student Teaching Classroom Visit/Observation, the Community Assessment, the Discipline Plan, Home Economics Instructional Plans, and Home Economics Student Teaching Seminars. The Resource Elements component involves cooperative participation from the university, the student teacher, the cooperating teacher, and the assigned school. (Brief descriptions of the intent and objectives of the seven student teaching connections are appended.) (YLB)
