Initial Evaluation of a System Approach to Supervision.
Blommel, George R.
A supervisory program for teachers at the Riverside School, Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, is based upon two objectives: (1) to make teachers more aware of their classroom behavior, and (2) to insure students of adequate instruction. The four phases of the program are: (1) a teacher-initiated request for observation; (2) classroom observation by the principal focusing upon technical skills requested by the teacher; (3) planning by the principal of a teacher-principal conference on the same day as the observation; and (4) a teacher-principal conference. An evaluation of the program's effectiveness is obtained by use of a Satisfaction Survey completed by all fourth and fifth grade teachers in four district schools. The Teacher Request Form for Supervisory Observation, Supervisory Observation of the Technical Skills of Teaching form, and the Supervisory Observation of Student Reactions form are provided. A table presents the mean numerical ratings on statements from the Satisfaction Survey. (DB)
