Enhancing the Student Teaching Experience through Diversified Observation and Feedback: Some Supervisory Contributions.
Henk, William A.
Student teaching supervisors have been criticized for failing to assume more active instructional leadership roles in the professional development of their charges. In this article, strategies are presented for expanding the role of the supervisor and thereby enhancing the learning climate for prospective teachers. In general, the strategies center on expanding the breadth and magnitude of student teachers' observational experiences and providing greater and more diversified sources of teaching feedback. More specifically, they include the direct instruction and modeling of effective observational skills, arranging opportunities for student teachers to observe in classrooms containing pupils of varying abilities, developmental levels, and special needs, and the coordination of peer, staff, administrative, and self-evaluations.
