Characteristics of Highly Effective Cooperating Teachers: A Study of Their Backgrounds and Preparation
The present study investigated the effectiveness of cooperating teachers at four sites where several of the factors associated with effective supervision were present. In the first stage of the research, information was gathered through interviews and artifact collection about cooperating teachers' supervisory preparation, practices, and perceptions. In the second stage of the research, researchers used ex post facto methods to used ex post facto methods to identify background and intervention factors associated with their effectiveness levels. 13 pairs of cooperating-teacher-student-teacher from four sites participated in the study.

In this study, the authors determine the efficacy of two-way videoconferencing to supervise pre-service special education teachers. Efficacy is determined by (a) assessing interobserver reliability between on-site and off-site observers and (b) evaluating the feasibility and practicality of the videoconferencing technology. Participants include two special education pre-service teachers and four university supervisors of practicum and student teaching experiences.

Training teachers to supervise paraeducators is critical to their effective and ethical use in school programs (Drecktrah, 2000; May & Marozas, 1986; Wallace et al., 2001). This project has demonstrated that an online model for delivery of instruction can be developed at one university site and implemented effectively in other preparation programs to increase preservice teachers' and their instructors' knowledge of topics and awareness of issues in supervising paraeducators.
