Creely, Dan; Davis, Deborah; Johnson-Naden, Harriet; Korkatsch-Groszko, Maria; Bercik, Janet
This paper demonstrates how supervisors can implement and model professional teaching practices for their preservice students that exemplify knowledge, skills, and attitudes critical to teachers in a culturally diverse society. It discusses the importance of understanding the supervisory process, how the supervisory process can be effectively administered, and how the importance and understanding of the teaching process is essential to the final results. The paper provides examples of how the Standards for Teacher Educators may be met at the college and school levels. Four attachments offer health, physical education, and recreation samples; early childhood education samples; bilingual/bicultural and elementary education samples; and secondary education/English samples. Each example provides insight into how the supervisors work with their students and schools and adjust their expectations, focusing on Standard 1 (model professional practices which demonstrate knowledge, skills, and attitudes reflecting the best available practices in teacher education).
