The Supervision of Teaching: Report of a CEA Seminar (Montreal, Ontario, November 1-3, 1978).
Canadian Education Association, Toronto (Ontario).
In November of 1978 the Canadian Education Association held its first national French-language seminar for teachers, principals, school board administrators, and representatives of departments/ministries of education. The theme of the seminar was "Supervision of Teaching: Should it be Viewed as a Relationship of Help or Control?" This booklet contains a background paper outlining current practices in the supervision of teaching in each of the provinces and the two territories, the text of an address by Jean-Paul Desbiens, and a summary of the ten workshops that involved the 240 participants in discussions of five questions: (1) How is supervision viewed in your milieu? (2) What should supervision consist of? (3) Who should carry out supervision? (4) What are the factors that prevent the introduction of the desired type of supervision? (5) What changes should and can be made in supervision in order to remove or get around these negative factors? (Author/IRT)
