A Study of the Leadership Role of the Secondary Science Teacher as This Role Relates to the Science Program.
Snider, Joseph Lee
The purpose of this study was to investigate and report on aspects of the leadership role of the secondary science teacher as interpreted by the science teachers, principals, and supervisors. An opinionnaire was developed to elicit information regarding the leadership role of the secondary school science teacher as this role relates to the science program. The sample included 971 Ohio and Indiana science teachers, principals, and supervisors who responded to the opinionnaire. Data obtained were analyzed by correlation and chi-square techniques. The major findings were reported for each of the following areas of concern: (1) the current role of science teachers as leaders in science; (2) the current role of science teachers in an effective science program; (3) the future role of science teachers as leaders in an ideal science department; (4) the extent of unity present in the total science programs of representative school programs; and (5) competencies needed for the development of science teachers. Conclusions based on the data analyzed are reported. (RH)
