Supervisory Conference as Individualized Teaching. Association for Student Teaching Bulletin, No. 28, 1969.
Bebb, Aldon M.; And Others
This manual, developed for supervising teachers and others involved with the professional growth of students during their professional laboratory experience, explores "the means by which supervising teachers may use supervisory conferences to guide students in studying their own teaching behavior." The underlying thesis is that "the conference requires a particularly skillful kind of individualized teaching which must be learned and practiced. It is a skill that can be developed by any supervisor who is willing to expend the time and effort required." The guidelines and materials which are presented as a means to this end are developed under four major headings: (1) The Importance of the Conference (purposes, objectives, and emphasis); (2) Some Ways of Studying Teaching (principles and patterns of verbal interaction, cognitive activity, nonverbal communication, and learning theory, as defined and analyzed by researchers); (3) Principles of Effective Conferences (careful preparation, human relations skill, and productive results); and (4) Rewards of Productive Conferences. A bibliography is included. (Author/ES)
