THE VISITING TEACHER SERVICE IN MICHIGAN.
MAPLE, FRANK F.
A 200 ITEM VISITING TEACHER (VT) QUESTIONNAIRE WAS DEVELOPED TO GAIN GENERAL KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE STATUS, EMPHASES, AND PRACTICES OF THE MICHIGAN VISITING TEACHER PROGRAM. THE QUESTIONNAIRE DIVISIONS WERE--(1) BACKGROUND INFORMATION AND GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VT PROGRAM IN WHICH TEACHERS WERE ENGAGED, (2) THE NATURE OF VT SERVICE IN THREE OF THE VT'S SCHOOLS, (3) THE APPROPRIATENESS OF CERTAIN PUPIL PROBLEMS FOR VT REFERRAL, AND VT PARTICIPATION IN CERTAIN SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES, AND (4) SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT OF THE VT PROGRAM. UPON RECEIVING RESPONSES FROM 263 VISITING TEACHERS, A SECOND QUESTIONNAIRE WAS SENT TO 25 PRINCIPALS, 25 TEACHERS AND 24 DIAGNOSTICIANS SELECTED FROM THE SCHOOL SYSTEMS OF RESPONDING VISITING TEACHERS. RESULTS ARE SUMMARIZED, CONVERTED TO PERCENTAGES, AND INTERPRETED ON A NON-STATISTICAL INSPECTION BASIS. THE CONCLUSIONS INDICATE (1) DISAGREEMENT ABOUT ROLE EXPECTATIONS FOR VISITING TEACHERS AMONG PRINCIPALS, TEACHERS, AND DIAGNOSTICIANS, (2) FEW EFFORTS BY VT'S TO INFLUENCE THE SCHOOL'S ORGANIZATIONAL PATTERN, (3) LITTLE PROVISION OF SPECIFIC CONSULTATIVE SERVICES WHICH MEET THE IDENTIFIED NEEDS OF TEACHERS, AND (4) LITTLE EVIDENCE OF PREVENTATIVE ACTIVITIES BY PRACTITIONERS. A COPY OF THE QUESTIONNAIRE IS APPENDED.
