Clinical Indicators of Effective Cooperating Teachers.
Blair, Timothy R.; And Others
Twelve cooperating teachers rated superior by their peers, administrators, and university supervisors were asked to study current literature and reflect and decide upon what makes them so effective in being highly successful with student teachers. These teachers divided the qualities of superior cooperating teachers into two categories: qualities of effective teachers, and clinical qualities specific to working with student teachers. An outline is presented of twenty clinical concepts which encompass six operational areas: (1) role awareness; (2) human relations; (3) management and organization; (4) gradual induction into full responsibility; (5) differential instruction; and (6) evaluation and analysis of teaching. A complete listing is offered of the clinical competencies and behavioral statements describing how each competency is manifested. (JD)
