My study aims to contribute to the development of the supervision system by implementing a suggested model as an attempt to solve some problems in the pre-service practicum course in Almajmaah University; passivity of student teachers (STs) and the isolation between the university staff and teachers in schools. Therefore, the model focuses on two main points: A - Supporting the positivity of STs toward their learning by enhancing their reflection on their own teaching via using lesson study. B - Engaging the teachers in the schools (TIS) in cooperative work with the supervisor that benefits STs. Methodology: cooperative work with the supervisor that benefits STs. A case study of participatory action research conducted within a qualitative research paradigm, with data collected from multiple sources: individual and focus group interviews with several STs, TIS and supervisors; the researcher’s diary; and reflective journals from the STs.
