The Field Experience: Creating Successful Programs for New Teachers.
Slick, Gloria Appelt, Ed.
This is the first in a series of four books presenting a variety of field experience program models and philosophies that drive the programs provided to preservice teachers during their undergraduate teacher preparation. This publications focuses on developing and evaluating an effective field experience program. Several common themes emerge from the models and philosophies described. First, each program suggests the path undergraduate students must experience to assimilate the culture of teaching. Second, each expresses the belief that field experiences must be integrated into the theoretical framework of teacher education programs. Third, it is only through this integration of efforts between the university faculty and clinical/field faculty that connections are made by the preservice teacher for practical application to the classroom. Following an introduction by Gloria Appelt Slick, the book is divided into 10 chapters: (1) "Creating State-of-the-Art Field Experiences: The Professional Development School" (Mary J. Selke and Roger A. Kueter); (2) "Articulating Field Experience Programs" (Kathryn R. Oakland, Linda A. Fernandez, and Roger A. Kueter); (3) "Leadership for Effective Student Teaching" (Allan A. Glatthorn and Charles R. Coble); (4) "Providing Meaningful Field Experiences" (Frank M. Ribich); (5) "Feedback Measures in Field Experience Programs" (Patrice Holden Werner, and others); (6) "Evaluating Student Teachers: The Formative and Summative Process" (Susan E. Pullman); (7) "Evaluating Field Experience Programs" (Patricia D. Exner); (8) "Operating a Small Field Experience Program for Teacher and Administrator Preparation in a Private School of Education" (Barbara A. Coulibaly and Rita M. King); (9) "Coordinating Theory with Practice: The Department Chair's Perspective" (Mildred E. Kersh); and (10) "Bits and Pieces: Everything Else You Wanted To Know about Designing and Implementing Field Experience Programs" (Kenneth Burrett and Gloria Appelt Slick). Each chapter contains references. (ND)
