Factors Influencing the Role of Supervisors of English.
Prigmore, George T.
To determine the duties of English supervisors and the effect of certain organizational factors upon them, a questionnaire was sent to 702 English language arts supervisors in 50 states. Replies were received from 354. An interpretation of the data provided a profile of the average English supervisor, a description of his position and its requirements, and an analysis of his duties and the time allotted to each. Organizational factors were found to have a definite influence upon the role behavior of incumbent supervisors. It was indicated that the educational organization expects supervisors to focus on change and evaluation of the curriculum and classroom instruction rather than on such activities as demonstration teaching and lobbying. (Tables and charts detailing questionnaire results are provided.) (LH)
