The Supervisor as a Catalyst for Change: A Comparative Study on the Role of the Foreign Language and Science Supervisors.
Papalia, Anthony; Doran, Rodney L.
This survey was designed to determine the academic background, extra salary, released time, duties, and responsibilities of the foreign language and science supervisors employed by the public secondary schools in Western New York and to identify the role they play in the improvement of instruction. More than 70 completed questionnaires serve as the basis of the report. Statistical data for both foreign language and science positions are tabulated in six tables comparing administrative titles, level of responsibilities of the positions, school enrollment and type of leadership, academic degrees and additional credits, and time distribution allotted for supervisory positions. A summary with general recommendations is included. (RL)
