A CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF SUPERVISION OF INSTRUCTION IN THE HARVARD-LEXINGTON SUMMER PROGRAM.
GOLDHAMMER, ROBERT
THE HARVARD-LEXINGTON 1963 SUMMER PROGRAM FOR TRAINING EDUCATIONAL SUPERVISORS WAS ANALYZED IN AN ATTEMPT TO CREATE A NATURAL HISTORY OF SUPERVISION AND TEACHING AND TO DISCOVER PROBLEMS OF SUPERVISION AND SUPERVISORY EDUCATION. TAPE RECORDINGS, BASED ON SUBSTANTIVE AND PROBLEMATIC RICHNESS, WERE MADE OF ALL SESSIONS IN WHICH SUPERVISION WAS BEING PLANNED AND STUDIED. HISTORICAL ANALYSIS CONSISTED OF CITING DATA EITHER AS DOCUMENTARY EVIDENCE FOR INDUCTIVE DEVELOPMENT OF PROPOSITIONS AND HYPOTHESES PRESENTED OR AS AUTHENTICATING THE EXISTENCE OF SIGNIFICANT ISSUES. FINDINGS INCLUDED--(1) THE PROPONENTS OF CLINICAL SUPERVISION WERE MORE SUCCESSFUL IN ANALYZING TEACHING BEHAVIOR THAN IN CHANGING IT, (2) BOTH THE MODEL OF CLINICAL SUPERVISION AND THE TECHNIQUES USED WERE LARGELY DEFECTIVE, AND (3) THE MOST USEFUL SOURCES FOR MODIFYING THE ORIGINAL MODEL AND METHODS WERE ANALOGUES IN TEACHING AND COUNSELING. A COMPENDIUM OF PROBLEMS IS PROVIDED FOR THEORETICAL CONSIDERATION, EMPIRICAL STUDY, AND EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH IN THE AREA OF SUPERVISION. THIS MATERIAL WAS SUBMITTED AS A DISSERTATION TO HARVARD UNIVERSITY, 1966, 213 PAGES. (JK)
