Summary

This study examined middle and high school students' attitudes toward and perceptions of student teachers who worked in their college preparatory school. The students completed one survey with a particular preservice teacher in mind, and then they completed a second survey that was more general and reflected all student teachers they had experienced. Results indicated that 61.9 percent of students considered preservice teachers competent, and 72.3 percent considered them qualified to teach in their content area. About half of the students were comfortable, while about one-quarter were uncomfortable, with having a student teacher in class. About half were comfortable asking preservice teachers for help. Students thought that younger preservice teachers related better to students than did older ones, though their methods of determining age were impressionable. They believed older student teachers demanded more of them. The term "student teacher" had a negative connotation to respondents as though they were less qualified. First year students were the most apprehensive about preservice teachers, while juniors were the most receptive. The surveys are appended. (SM)
