A Study of Clinical Supervision as a Resource for College Teachers of English.
Garman, Noreen Bonk
The role of the clinical supervisor as a resource to college English teachers is examined in this study through an investigation of the influence of an experimental and a modified experimental training program on two groups of teaching assistants. The experimental program for five TA's in Group A was a teaching seminar and supervision for a trimester. The modified program for five TA's in Group B was a teaching seminar without supervision. It was found that in Group A four TA's were able to design instructional changes but were unsatisfied with their evaluation skills. In Group B one TA made instructional changes, but the other TA's, while becoming aware of new skills, were unable to implement them. During the study the investigator developed a program of resource supervision based on the needs of Group A. A description of the clinical supervision model and a list of the clinical supervisor's competencies were presented, along with the concept of resource supervision and the competencies of the resource supervisor.
