Development and Implementation of a Goal-Oriented Model of Supervision.
This model of teacher supervision was designed to improve instruction in the Aspinwall Elementary School in the Fox Chapel School District, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The project sought to accomplish three things: improve the achievement level of underachieving students, increase teacher instructional effectiveness, and change the teachers' perception of the principal's supervisory behavior. Treatment included a diagnostic assessment of the students' specific skill deficiencies and a self-evaluation of the teachers. A prescriptive approach was used with the students, and two commercially published criterion reference programs were utilized. Teachers wrote goals in the form of a behavior checklist and these goals were monitored by using a modified clinical supervision approach. Evaluation of the project suggested that the model could improve achievement, and teacher and administrator performance. The appendix includes samples of the materials needed to conduct a similar program. (Author/JM)
