A Consideration of Teaching Load in American Junior Colleges.
A teaching load measurement formula seeks to equalize the load credit given to teachers of various kinds of classes (such as lectures, laboratories, physical education) in terms of number of preparations, course differences, class size, clerical assistance, student advising, committee work, and overload. The formula expresses each teacher's work load as clock hours per week. The hours are computed and recorded on a special tally sheet. In this form, the teaching load can be understood by the public and may help to change the attitude of critics who feel that teachers have shorter hours than other workers. Faculty teaching loads may be compared at different schools using the same method. (MS)
