Making the Difference for Teachers: The Field Experience in Actual Practice.
Slick, Gloria Appelt, Ed.
This is the third 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 publication explores the internal workings of the relationships and events that have an impact on all the persons involved during field experiences. Several chapters deal with the unique roles and responsibilities that professionals from both the university and the public schools must assume. Following an introduction by Gloria Appelt Slick, the book is divided into 11 chapters: (1) "Preparing Invitational Teachers for Next-Century Schools" (William Watson Purkey); (2) "Supervising Student Teachers: A New Paradigm" (Marvin A. Henry); (3) "Assimilating the Culture of Teaching: The Student Teaching Experience" (Patricia T. Whitfield); (4) "Communication: The Key to Successful Field Experiences" (Margaret H. Shaw-Baker); (5) "Student Teaching: A Student Teacher's View" (Lesley Peebles Fairley); (6) "Managing Someone Else's Classroom during Student Teaching" (Robert E. Knaub); (7) "Can Every Teacher Be a Successful Mentor?" (Sharon O'Bryan); (8) "Rewarding the Practicing Professional" (Sandra Weiser); (9) "Making a Difference for Student Teachers through the Careful Preparation of Supervisors" (Sharon Brennan); (10) "Connecting Purposes: Administrators' Views of Field Experiences" (Gloria A. Slick); (11) "Bits and Pieces: Everything Else You Wanted To Know about Making a Difference for People in Field Experiences" (Gloria Appelt Slick and Kenneth Burrett).
