High Tea for Public School Supervisors? Really!
Boze, Nancy
The Teacher Center at the University of Houston-Clear Lake (Texas) invites public school supervisors who work with their student teachers, and any other teachers who are interested in supervising student teachers, to a High Tea/inservice program each semester. In planning the inservice program, the organizers first look at evaluations from previous years to get an idea of what skills teachers may wish to attain. Careful planning must go into the scheduling of this session before the meeting can be held. The student teacher must have been in the classroom for an adequate period of time so that he or she can assume responsibility for the class when the supervisor goes to the university for High Tea. When the supervisor arrives at the university for the inservice, registration occurs at the door so that a certificate of attendance can be issued and staff development credit obtained. A 15 minute period for visiting and introducing themselves to teachers from other districts starts the session off. A presentation dealing with the procedures of the tripartite team (student teacher, public school supervisor, and university supervisor) is generally followed by a question-and-answer period. The next session is devoted to a particular aspect of supervision. There is then a break for High Tea, which is followed by individual sessions with university supervisors. The final step involves teachers filling out evaluation forms and receiving their certificates of attendance. A time schedule for the inservice, a certificate of attendance, a sheet on "using feedback wisely," and an evaluation form are appended. (JMK)
