The Status of the "Significant Other" in Teacher Education.
Zerr, Rita G.
This paper describes the preliminary findings of a national survey of state requirements for cooperating classroom teachers serving as supervisors of student teaching. It represents a 90 percent national response, with data from all but five states (i.e., Kansas, New Mexico, Rhode Island, Texas, and Utah). Reported information includes: (1) certification in teaching area; (2) supervision in student teaching course; (3) required number of years of experience; (4) required degree; (5) other requirements; and (6) change in State requirement(s) for cooperating teachers during the period 1982-87. In addition to the findings from the national survey, this paper discusses implications of the various responses and advances recommendations for the preparation of cooperating teachers. (Author)
