Supervision of English, Grades K-12: A Resource Book for State and Local School Systems. Guidelines, Procedures, Models. Reports and Recommendations from the Conference of Supervisors of English (Washington, D. C., February 1964).
Brett, Sue M., Ed.
This volume contains the recommendations for improving English supervision which were formulated at the USOE Conference of Supervisors of English. James R. Squire discusses the present state of supervisory procedures and inservice teacher education, and Helen F. Olson reports the findings of the 1962 National Council of Teachers of English Survey of English Supervisors. The recommendations prepared at the conference are then collected under six headings: (1) Placement of Responsibility for Supervising the English Program, (2) Professional Status, Duties, and Relationships of the English Supervisor, (3) Inservice Education of English Teachers, (4) Procedures for Improving Curriculum and Producing Curriculum Guides, (5) Procedures and Criteria for Selecting Teaching Materials, and (6) Establishment of a Favorable Teaching Environment. The problems of English supervision at the superintendents' level are discussed in papers by J. E. Miller and Robert S. Fleming. Reports on current programs of English supervision in Texas, Florida, Troup County (Georgia), Pittsburgh, and Portland (Oregon) are presented by Dorothy Davidson, Paul H. Jacobs, Bernice Freeman, Lois M. Grose, and Marian Zollinger respectively. Excerpts from the conference discussions are appended. (This document previously announced as ED 023 679.) (LH)
