Education into the 21st Century: Looking at Cooperating Teacher Educators.
Shaver, Judy C.; Wise, Beth S.
A brief overview is presented in this paper of the history of using cooperating teachers to supervise student teachers and the concerns that have been shown over the years about their qualifications. Results are reported of a recent survey of 44 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico which sought information on legal requirements for cooperating teachers. There appeared to be no uniformity among requirements for the teachers who guide student teachers. Reform in this area is needed as the United States enters the 21st century. (JD)
