Abstract:This thesis has two general purposes. The first purpose, which will be developed in Part I of the thesis, is to provide a thorough frame of reference for the reader. This frame of reference is extremely significant in that as of this time, there is a dearth of literature on the ct-st team approach to student teaching. First of all, an attempt will be made to develop a clear definition of the ct-st team by (a) describing its essential theoretical aspects and (b) contrasting the distinctive qualities of the ct-st team approach with those of the conventional approach to student teaching. Second, to understand further the ct-st team approach that only a minority of the student teachers used during the 1969 fall semester, the status of the conventional approach that the majority of student teachers employed during that same semester will be qualified and analyzed. Third, a description and analysis of one ct-st team will complete the frame of reference. The second purpose, developed in Part II of the thesis, is to examine certain conditions of the ct-st team approach. The motivating force behind such an examination was this question: Is the ct-st team approach to student teaching a positive force for all its constituents—the students, the student teachers, and the cooperating teachers? In an attempt to acquire answers to this question, the data from two questionnaires, one that was issued to a number of students and another that was sent to both cooperating teachers and student teachers who had established ct-st teams during the 1969 fall semester, was analyzed. Ultimately, it is hoped that this thesis will provide a knowledge and an understanding of the ct-st team approach to student teaching, with the intent of improving the quality of education in general and the quality of student teaching in particular.
