Ranked Importance of Student Teacher Tasks as Perceived by Cooperating Teachers and University Supervisors.
Berkey, Debra S.; Hamilton, Michelle
This study sought to determine the ranked importance of the teaching tasks to be demonstrated by physical education student teachers as perceived by cooperating teachers and supervisors. The study was designed specifically to detect the nature of the tasks ranked highly by each group. Questionnaires were sent to 91 cooperating teachers and 30 university supervisors, asking them to rank the importance of 15 teaching tasks with respect to their expectations of student teachers. Responses received from 85 subjects were compared for differences between cooperating teachers and supervisors and by gender. The two groups concurred with respect to the importance of demonstrating ability to self-assess, writing functional lesson/unit plans, and knowledge of subject matter. A discussion is presented on the results of an analysis of the data collected. Data are presented on tables and references are included. (JD)
