Interns' Assessment of Teachers: Perceived Usefulness of Developmental Feedback.
Ariza-Menendez, Maria
Five Dade County (Florida) public schools (three elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school) served as clinical training centers in the Ford Foundation Clinical Supervision program. Characteristics of the program include: (1) shifting of primary responsibility for supervising internships for preservice teachers from the universities to classroom teachers who serve as clinical supervisors; (2) emphasis on selection, training, and resources for clinical supervisors; (3) a rigorous 4-week training program which precedes actual supervision of interns; and (4) extension of the internship to a full-year program that includes daily inservice training provided at the school site and observation of exemplary teaching practices. This report focuses on interns' (N=58) assessment of their clinical supervisors and the usefulness of the developmental feedback from the supervisors. The Ford interns' responses were compared to those of a control group of interns (N=81) who had a regular internship of 9-14 weeks. Findings indicate that, in general, interns' reactions to their directing teachers were very favorable, and that the interns found their developmental teachers' feedback valuable. (IAH)
