Teacher as Advocate: A Look at CADST--Chicago Area Directors of Student Teaching--Pro Active Model.
Bercik, Janet T.; Pultorak, Edward
This paper describes the Chicago Area Directors of Student Teachers (CADST), formed in 1969 as an outgrowth of the Chicago Consortium, which was designed to initiate cooperation among institutions of higher education in the Chicago area. Members of CADST work together to share ideas and deal with issues relevant to working with preservice teachers. The organization currently involves 24 public, private, and parochial institutions. Membership is open to people at the institution who coordinate or direct field placements. If one of these people leaves their position, the institution may send a new representative. For many participants the crucial piece is having someone or a group who will mentor them through the process. CADST meets six times per year. This paper presents a background on CADST, describes the present organization, explains CADST's collaborative efforts, and discusses its structure and future. It also explains how to develop a coalition of supervisors. Attached are a sample letter for setting a meeting and the requirements for that day; a sample agenda; and a sample of host institutions.
