Perceptions of Secondary Student Teaching Experiences. Monograph No. 13.
Bare, Charles; Hill, Sandra
This study focused on information provided by cooperating teachers and student teachers (N=140) in a 2-week student teaching experience for second year secondary students in the teacher education program at the University of Saskatchewan. The analysis focused on cooperating teachers' comments on the evaluation form; this information is compared to student teachers' perceptions as written in their analysis of the experience. Further analysis reviewed the cooperating teachers' comments on the students potential to become a secondary teacher. The comments included such areas as attitude, initiative, responsibility, maturity of interaction with students and effectiveness of communication. The information collected also indicates the extent to which the three objectives of the student teaching experience were met. The objectives are: (1) to allow students to decide if they wish to continue in education; (2) to allow the College of Education to identify students who should not continue; and (3) to provide experiences which will make third year education courses more meaningful.
