This work is a practical guide for university supervisors that examines the supervisory process, the preparation necessary for supervision, the responsibilities of the university supervisor, the historical assumption underlying the supervisory role, and what research tells us about effective supervision.

This handbook is designed for those involved in teacher education and the supervision of practical teaching. It will be useful for university tutors on teacher education programmes and mentors in schools, as well as senior staff in schools who are involved in appraisal and evaluation. It is intended to meet the growing need for an accessible, jargon-free discussion of supervision conferencing that is based on practice and the viewpoints of both supervisors and those supervised, rather than just theory. This user-friendly handbook could be used as the basis of workshops for in-service training of supervisors. However, it is also designed as a readable self-help introduction to the subject for the many practising tutors for whom the supervision of teaching practice is a part of their everyday professional life. The handbook sets out to answer two main questions: ( What is the role and context of supervisory conferencing? ( How to tackle topics that are often difficult to discuss?

This book includes a solid body of research yet reads in a conversational tone. It should be the companion for every cooperating teacher, teacher educator, supervisor, and principal.

This comprehensive text presents up-to-date research and how tos for those enrolled in an early childhood student teaching practicum course. It clearly explains a student teacher's professional duties and responsibilities, the mechanics of hands-on teaching under the guidance of a cooperating teacher, and students' interactions with their college course supervisor(s). Chapters are designed to encourage contemplative and reflective thought as students develop an understanding of professionally accepted practice, ethics, classroom management, and individualized and group program planning and instruction. Communication skills that typify effective team teaching and reduce common classroom problems during student teaching are described and detailed. Current practices related to special-needs children and infant-toddler classroom placement are addressed, as is the development of school-home partnerships that enhance children's life-long learning and educational success. Throughout, case studies and examples illustrate real-life situations and children that other student teachers have encountered.

Considering how much experience there now is in providing supervisor training in the UK, relatively little has been written about it. This book aims to create a lively and readable resource that will be informative and inspirational for those planning for the future of training for supervisors of counsellors, or who create, teach on or apply for supervisor training. The structure and content will invite reflection on the training issues that the authors address. It is intended to be consciously forward looking in a period of rapid development, and is designed to highlight differences between providers as well as the approaches and ideas they share. It is the work of many authors, all of whom are or have been involved in supervisor training in the UK. The book should also be of interest to colleagues involved in training supervisors in other contexts and allied professions: social work, medical and nursing professions, coaching, and teaching. It spans a range of theoretical approaches to supervisor training, and authors thus inevitably write from quite different basic assumptions about supervision. They call on a huge range of published resources, many only available in journal articles within their particular modality that have not entered the mainstream. One great gift is thus the lists of references for each chapter.
