The evolution of a student teacher to a qualified teacher in the United States is explored in this practical volume. An integral element of this evolutionary process is the role played by those who mould the new teachers: the university supervisor, cooperating teacher and school principal. A useful aid to all those involved in this transition, the book is designed for use during field experience seminars and teacher training sessions.
