Resolving the Student Teaching Dilemma: A Collaborative Approach.
Coulon, Stephen C.; Byra, Mark
A major goal of physical education teacher education (PETE) programs is to develop future teachers who can demonstrate effective decision-making tendencies and instructional behaviors. The student teaching experience allows preservice teachers to advance their instructional skills while gaining confidence and competence, and it provides an opportunity to discuss social, ethical, and political issues related to the process of schooling. The purpose of this paper is to describe the efforts put forth by faculty from one PETE program and from physical education teachers throughout the state to improve the student teaching experience via the development of a statewide communication network. The network of university faculty and state physical educators was developed with the initial emphasis on training cooperating teachers to be effective student teacher supervisors and on establishing channels that would allow for continual communication between university faculty and physical education teachers throughout the state. Implementation of the communication network hinged on university cooperation and statewide collaboration. (Contains 45 references.) (Author/LL)
