FUNCTIONS OF VISITING TEACHERS IN MICHIGAN. SUMMARY OF PRELIMINARY FINDINGS.
Michigan Univ., Ann Arbor. Midwest Research Center.
THE TASKS PERFORMED BY VISITING TEACHERS AS IDENTIFIED BY VISITING TEACHERS, THE ACTUAL TASK PERFORMANCE OF VISITING TEACHERS AS VIEWED BY PRINCIPALS, TEACHERS AND SCHOOL DIAGNOSTICIANS, AND THE TASKS THAT VISITING TEACHERS SHOULD PERFORM ACCORDING TO SCHOOL PERSONNEL WERE STUDIED. DATA WAS OBTAINED THROUGH QUESTIONNAIRES. THE FIRST SECTION INCLUDED QUESTIONS ON THE VISITING TEACHERS' BACKGROUNDS AND THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SCHOOL BUILDINGS IN WHICH THEY WORKED. THIS SECTION, WHICH ONLY VISITING TEACHERS RESPONDED TO, CONCERNED THE FUNCTIONS PERFORMED BY THE VISITING TEACHER AND THE STAFF'S PERCEPTION OF THE VISITING TEACHER. THE SECOND PART CONSISTED OF COMPARISONS OF THE VISITING TEACHERS'S ROLE AS VIEWED BY VISITING TEACHERS, PRINCIPALS, SCHOOL DIAGNOSTICIANS AND TEACHERS. SUBJECTIVE OPINIONS BY THE TEACHERS AND PRINCIPALS IN RESPONSE TO THREE ESSAY QUESTIONS WERE INCLUDED IN THE THIRD PART, WHILE THE FINAL SECTION PRESENTED SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVING THE PROGRAM. ANALYSIS OF THE DATA SHOWED THAT THE SCHOOL PERSONNEL DID NOT UNDERSTAND THE ROLE OF THE VISITING TEACHER NOR WAS THERE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PERSONNEL AND THE VISITING TEACHER ON WHICH PROBLEMS SHOULD BE REFERRED TO THE VISITING TEACHER AS THE FIRST STEP AND WHAT FUNCTIONS SHOULD MAKE UP THE VISITING TEACHER'S ROLE.
