Clinical Supervision: A Short Description.
Moore, James J.; Mattaliano, Anthony P.
This document describes clinical supervision, a method of carrying out supervision in a classroom through face to face relationships between teacher and supervisor. Clinical supervision is to improve instruction through help to the teacher. Activities include a) the supervision of actual professional activity, b) the enhancement of interactive personal contact between teacher and supervisor, and c) the analysis of teaching by both parties after observation. The clinical supervision cycle is composed of five events: preobservation session, classroom observation, strategy session, analysis session, and post-conference session. Preobservation prepares the supervisor to observe; the supervisor comes to the classroom with recording instruments during classroom observation; the strategy session plans and prepares for analysis; the analysis session enables teacher and supervisor to meet and analyze instruction; and the post-conference session analyzes the supervision. A brief summary of the relationship of clinical supervision and teacher evaluation is also presented. (MJM)
