Have you noticed how little some cooperating teachers let their student teachers do? If "learning is by doing," a lot of student teachers aren't learning very much. I've seen student teachers teach only one or two weeks out of nine. Student teachers and supervisors should have a common checklist of activities that they can include as part of the student teaching experience. This may help the teacher who lectures frequently to do something besides talk. The aim would_ be mutual improvement and increased competence.
