The main idea behind this research work was to come up with a model of students’ supervision that emancipates the student teacher and simultaneously makes the student feel that he/she has a chance given to him to learn how to teach. The study was premised on making the students work collaboratively with the mentor, fellow students, college/university tutors using the “blended model”. The model was tried through a cyclical pre-lesson discussion, observations during the lesson and discussions after the lesson. The method used to operationalize this model was not a straight jacket since the researchers could start from any point in the cycle. It was found out that the blended model to teaching and learning instills self-confidence in the teacher. It urges the student to try out own theories about learning and teaching. The blended model can be adopted as an alternative approach to supervision.
