ROLE THEORY: ONE MODEL FOR INVESTIGATING THE STUDENT-TEACHING PROCESS

Myer Horowitz

Abstract


Many of the problems of administering a student-teaching programme require immediate solution, with or without the benefit of research findings, but I believe that student-teaching has been seriously neglected as an area for study and that there is a great need for conducting research on student-teaching in a systematic way. It seems appropriate in dealing with problems in student teaching, especially in the light of some of the criticism of research in this field, to consider the heuristic qualities of theoretical formulations. An attempt will be made in this paper to analyse one model in role theory with the hope that the analysis will suggest researchable questions on the student-teaching process.
