A Study of the Relationship Between the Rankings of Supervising Teacher Effectiveness and Attitude Toward Education.
Loadman, William E.; Mahan, James M.
This study ascertained the relationship between rankings of 47 supervising classroom teachers and their attitudes toward education. Independent rankings of supervisory effectiveness were obtained from 47 classroom teachers, 91 student teachers, and 12 university personnel. Each classroom teacher completed two standardized attitude toward education scales which yielded four scores. The results indicated that teachers with progressive and favorable attitudes toward education tended to be perceived by student teachers as somewhat less effective supervisors. These results are of critical import to persons concerned with effective student teacher-classroom teacher interaction in field-based preservice programs. (Author)
