Abstract

Two models of student teaching were compared: the traditional model of placing one student teacher with a mentor teacher and a peer teaching model, where two student teachers worked with one mentor. While the peer teaching model involved some trade-offs, the model was found to have a positive impact on children and to offer several important advantages for student teachers including increased support, the opportunity for on-going conversation about teaching, and experience in learning how to collaborate to improve practice. Mentor teachers found much of value in the model and support its continued use.
