Riley, Bob E.
This handbook is designed to provide a basis for discussion or training sessions on teacher-administrator relationships. The first section of the handbook examines communication problems and describes effective and ineffective communication techniques. Discussion questions and guidelines for communication improvement are listed for administrators and teachers. Features of conferences that promote attitude and behavior change are discussed in the second section. Steps in conference planning and evaluation are suggested. The third section deals with observation techniques that can improve teacher evaluation skills. An outline is presented of a team approach to classroom observation, consisting of a cycle of preparation, observation, analysis, conference, and conference analysis. Observation guidelines and supervisor objectives are included. The fourth section examines the definition and procedures involved in teacher evaluation in terms of capabilities and need for improvement. Written for the evaluator, the essay describes the rationale and purposes of different kinds of evalaution methods. Bibliographies are appended to each section. (FG)
