Zychowicz, Marlene J.
This module offers suggestions for improving cooperating teacher-student teacher conferences. The first section deals with establishing rapport and creating a climate that is supportive and non-threatening to the student teacher. Specific teaching skills which the cooperating teacher should emphasize in the conference are discussed: (1) planning for instruction; (2) teaching methods and materials used; (3) classroom management; (4) skill in handling materials and equipment; (5) keeping records; (6) personal relations with students and staff; and (7) personal qualities related to teaching performance. In the second and third sections, suggestions are made on planning a conference format and for dealing with student teachers who have special problems or negative attitudes. Four specific suggestions are made for improving conferences in the fourth section, and a list of questions is provided for evaluation of the conference's effectiveness. (JD)
