The Many Roles of the Cooperating Teachers: An Orientation Program for New Cooperating Teachers. Revised.
Frerichs, Richard, Ed.
This publication offers orientation materials for new cooperating teachers at Millersville University, Pennsylvania. The materials consist of nine stations with questions that can be used in a workshop format to generate discussion or which can be answered in writing by a teacher who is working through these materials in a home-study program. Side A of each sheet describes the station activity. Side B provides response topics for the teacher completing this orientation program at home as a correspondence course. The stations focus on: (1) assisting versus assessing student teachers; (2) characteristics needed to be a role model; (3) creating essential credentials; (4) articulating second-nature, unconscious teaching behaviors to another person; (5) effective conferences with student teachers; (6) ineffective conferences; (7) getting the student teacher inducted, informed, involved, and inspired; (8) letting go when the student teacher is ready to take over; and (9) classifying an instructional conference between a cooperating teacher and a student teacher in terms of instructional conference goals and lesson plan components.
