Raths, James, Ed.; Leeper, Robert R., Ed.
The eight papers in this volume are concerned with recent thinking and research in supervision with emphasis on the role of the supervisor as a change agent in schools. "Helping Teachers Change" by James B. Macdonald suggests supervisory dilemmas which pose philosophical and ethical questions. Two papers deal with the psychological mechanisms operating between teacher and supervisor: "An Interaction Model Applied to Supervision" by Robert D. Boyd and "Effects of Supervisor's Knowledge of Student Teacher Personality Evaluations" by Thomas A. Ringness. Two papers report research regarding the efficacy of different procedures for providing feedback to teachers: "Interaction Analysis as a Feedback System in Teacher Preparation" by Edmund Amidon and Evan Powell and "Professional Integration and Clinical Research" by Ted W. Ward. "Strategies for Instructional Change: Promising Ideas and Perplexing Problems" by Ben M. Harris and "Challenges for Supervisors" by Leslee J. Bishop identify supervision problems and suggest ways they may be met. James G. March in "Organizational Factors in Supervision" presents several models developed by organizational researchers, suggesting their use by supervisors for understanding the functioning of an organization. The "Preface" and "A Final Note" are written by James Raths. (JS)
