Abstract

There was a time when we used to have student teaching as the only classroom experience for an individual who wanted to be a teacher. Such experiences were generally arranged during the last quarter or semester of the person's college: education In these situations, it was a matter of completing it whether one liked it or not. Following this pattern of teacher training we turned out many teachers for whom teaching may not have been a number one priority. Currently, practical school experiences are provided starting in the freshman year. State of Ohio 1980 guidelines require that preservice teachers complete field-based experiences equivalent in time to one full quarter prior to student teaching. Similar guidelines are either in place or being implemented in other states.
