Abstract

An exploratory study was conducted to examine the perspectives of teacher candidates (TCs) and mentor teachers (MTs) of a clinically rich model (CRM) implemented within a physical education teacher education (PETE) program as compared to a traditional model (TM) of student teaching. Survey questions were focused on participant’s perceptions of the CRM compared to a TM of student teaching, including items on perceptions of the usefulness of the CRM in the preparation and implementation of the educative Teacher Performance Assessment (edTPA). The sample of 29 TCs and 28 MTs produced similar favorable ratings for the CRM relative to the TM on the evaluated characteristics.Subscribe to TPE
