Stanislawski, Debbie; Haltinner, Urs
Delta Pi Epsilon Journal, v51 n3 p166-176 Fall 2009
Objective: This article presents a teacher education program graduates' perceptions of their preparedness to take on roles as FBLA, DECA, and BPA advisers. Purpose: The purpose of the study was to better understand impacts that the model of teacher preparation had on participants' confidence to perform their adviser roles. Method: A descriptive study was completed using a web-based survey to collect data. Respondents included one-to six-year program graduates from a Midwestern teacher education program employed as marketing and/or business teachers. Results: The two most significant factors in the development of the respondents' confidence to take on initial advisement responsibilities were found to be a designated course focusing on student organizations and co-advisement during student teaching. Conclusions: This study supports a model of providing the philosophical, historical, technical, and practical training to effectively integrate and advise a Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO). Implications: Implications for business teacher-education emerged and include: developing curriculum focused on adviser roles, promoting professional student organizations that focus teacher candidates on the adviser role, partnering with National FBLA, BPA and DECA and strategically placing student teachers in programs that include CTSO co-advisement opportunities.
