Implementation from the Perspective of a Project Supervisor. Draft.
Meyer, Linda A.
The role of the project supervisor in implementing the Follow Through program's Direct Instruction Model is described in this report. The two most important aspects of effective supervision are identified as training and monitoring. The report first describes workshop training, focusing on twelve general conditions for instruction and four specific teaching techniques, and discusses classroom followup to the workshop sessions. The second part of the report details the monitoring of instruction by keeping track of daily progress through the prescribed lesson sequences as well as by using criterion- and norm-referenced tests. The report concludes that the success of the strategies for implementing Direct Instruction indicates improvements that could be made in training, monitoring, and supervision in other educational situations.
