Individually Prescribed Supervisory Training Protocols Based on a Comprehensive Analysis of a Trainee's Conference.
Young, Dorothy A.; Young, David B.
Based on the assumption that the conduct of an effective supervisory conference is analogous to effective teaching and that the assumptions made about effective teaching behaviors can also be made about supervisory behaviors, this paper develops and describes in detail a ten-category observation system for supervisory conferences, similar to the Flanders system, to be used in training supervisors. The supervisor training model outlined contains the following sequence: 1) A student teacher microteaches with the supervisor observing. 2) The supervisor confers with the student teacher while a "teacher of supervision" observes and codes the supervisory behavior. 3) The "teacher of supervision" reviews the supervisor-student teacher conference with the supervisor using the data collected and viewing a videotape of the conference. In the third step, individual supervisory skills which need development can be identified and practiced. In a teach-reteach microteaching situation, this sequence would be repeated twice. (RT)
