Redesigning Supervision: Alternative Models for Student Teaching and Field Experiences
Rodgers, Adrian; Jenkins, Deborah Bainer
Teachers College Press
In "Redesigning Supervision", active professionals in teacher education and professional development share research-based, alternative models for restructuring the way pre-service teachers are supervised. The authors examine the methods currently used and discuss how teacher educators have striven to change or renew these procedures. They then present strategies designed to provide student teachers with powerful learning experiences that move beyond traditional models. A key final chapter offers future options, including informal supervision, inquiry-based supervision, and the use of an advisory group for pre-service teachers. This book includes contributions by Robert V. Bullough, Jr, C. J. Daane, M. Winston Egan, Virginia L. Keil, Jeffery D Nokes, and Elizabeth K. Wilson. It also provides three adaptable case studies that chronicle alternative approaches to supervision. It addresses specific understandings, abilities, and dispositions needed to provide high-quality supervision for beginning teachers and outlines new roles for veteran teachers that support the use of their skills without removing them from classroom settings.
