Clinical Supervision and Management by Objectives: An Integrated Approach for School Supervision.
Newton, Robert R.
After noting that the principles of clinical supervision and management by objectives (MBO) may at first appear to be contradictory, the author briefly describes a system attempting to adapt and combine components of these two movements in a practical supervisory system in a secondary school. He first explains the supervisory process in general and the system's adaptation of it to three formal stages: the completion of a preobservation form by the teacher, the observation of the teacher (focusing on a particular aspect of classroom behavior), and a conference with the teacher. The MBO approach is then applied to the supervisory process. In this system the departmental chairperson and the principal agree on the number of teacher observations to be made each semester and determine a focus for each observation appropriate to the teacher. Teachers themselves are asked to state their own performance objectives related to this focus and to state how they will accomplish them and evaluate their achievement. The remaining nine pages of the document consist of forms used in an integrated clinical supervision-management by objectives supervisory system. Some of these forms are to be used where performance objectives pertain to teacher questionning techniques. (Author/JM)
