Observational Methods in the Classroom.
Beegle, Charles W., Ed.; Brandt, Richard M., Ed.
The ASCD Supervision Council established three regional conferences to (1) assure that supervisors in elementary and secondary education would have the opportunity for self-renewal through a wide variety of meaningful experiences, and (2) help supervisors and curriculum workers develop skills and competencies that could be shared with teachers. The Southeastern Conference had as its theme, "Systems for Observing In"School Operations." The papers presented at this conference are included, in edited form, in this booklet, and include Leslee J. Bishop, "Systems for Observing In-School Operations;" Robert S. Fleming, "The Supervisor as an Observer;" James Raths, "Problems Associated with Describing Activities;" Richard M. Brandt, "Toward a Taxonomy of Observational Information;" Donald M. Medley, "Measuring the Complex Classroom of Today;" Charles M. Galloway, "The Nonverbal Realities of Classroom Life;" Larry S. Bowen, "Use of the Flanders Interaction Analysis System;" I. V. Ahnell and Horace C. Hawn, "Self-Evaluation Through Video Tape Recordings;" William C. Lowry, "Content Analysis of Mathematics Instructional Materials;" Joseph E. Strzepek, "Analyzing the Content of English Instruction: A Point of View;" Harold R. Strang and James R. George, "Instrumentation in Monitoring and Recording Human Behavior;" and Richard M. Brandt and Hugh V. Perkins, Jr., "Observation in Supervisory Practice and School Research." (Author)
