Wilson 2005 Alternative Model of Student Teacher Supervision

Wilson, E. K. (2005). The impact of an alternative model of student teacher supervision: Views of the participants. Teaching and Teacher Education, 22, 22-31.

Summary: The purpose of this study was to understand participants' perceptions regarding an alternative model of clinical experiences where the traditional university supervisor works with a team of CTs who collectively raise a group of PSTs. The traditional triad was eliminated to create a community of learners. The role of the supervisor shifted from primary responsibiltiy of the PST to supporting CTs' pedagogy of teacher education. Although drawbacks existed, most participants liked the community apprenticeship model of supervision.
