SUPERVISOR INTERACTION AS SEEN BY SUPERVISORS AND TEACHERS.
BLUMBERG, ARTHUR; AND OTHERS
ASPECTS OF SUPERVISOR-TEACHER INTERACTION WERE EVALUATED THROUGH AN ANALYSIS OF QUESTIONNAIRE RESPONSES FROM 164 TEACHERS AND 45 PUBLIC SCHOOL SUPERVISORS ATTENDING SUMMER SCHOOL AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY. FINDINGS INDICATE--(1) BOTH TEACHERS AND SUPERVISORS REGARD INDIRECT SUPERVISOR BEHAVIOR AS MORE PRODUCTIVE THAN DIRECT, (2) TEACHERS VIEW SUPERVISORS AS CREATING A SUPERORDINATE-SUBORDINATE SITUATION AND GIVING LESS EMPATHY TO TEACHERS THAN SUPERVISORS REGARD THEMSELVES AS GIVING, (3) TEACHERS BELIEVE THEMSELVES TO BE LEARNING LESS ABOUT THEMSELVES AS TEACHERS AND PEOPLE THAN SUPERVISORS DO, AND (4) TEACHERS FEEL THEY ARE LESS FREE THAN SUPERVISORS TO INITIATE DISCUSSIONS. DEVELOPMENT OF BETTER COMMUNICATION CHANNELS BETWEEN SUPERVISORS AND TEACHERS IS RECOMMENDED, WITH EMPHASIS ON INDIRECT SUPERVISION AS MORE EFFECTIVE FOR THE SUPERVISOR'S TWO ROLES OF INCREASING GENERAL TEACHER PRODUCTIVITY AND INITIATING POSITIVE CHANGE. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION (NEW YORK, FEBRUARY, 1967). (JK)
