This article presents information about a study to determine the effect of two interventions used with 3 student teachers to increase their verbal interaction and teacher behaviors. The two interventions included: cooperating teacher feedback and self-assessment via tape recording of lessons. Although student teaching is universally accepted as an invaluable teacher training experience, many student teachers mention negative points about it. Stress is a major negative point and is usually caused by the student teacher's lack of confidence. Both interventions had a positive effect on the numbers of oral interventions during class.
