Teaching in the Secondary Schools: A Guide for Pre-Service Teachers.
Illinois Univ., Chicago. Coll. of Education.
This guidebook for preservice secondary student teachers outlines in detail the techniques for relating field experiences to the academic work in the university classroom. It assumes a progressive involvement on the part of the student teacher, beginning with active observation and leading to tutoring, working with small groups, teaching a whole class, developing a unit of instruction and planning an entire course. At each step the manual offers some guidelines, forms, examples and formats. The first chapter suggests that the preservice teacher begin with classroom observation and keep a log of observations. The second chapter moves the teacher into one-on-one encounters with students through tutoring. Chapter three discusses effective ways of working with small groups while chapter four covers teaching a whole class. In the fifth chapter, how to develop a unit is discussed, and chapter six deals with planning an entire course. Sample log sheets and evaluation forms are provided in the appendix along with a checklist to help student teachers become acclimated to the school environment. (JD)
