Microteaching--A Study in Specific and General Behavior of Supervisors.
Kise, Joan Duff
This study analyzed aspects of the supervisory conference that uses the vehicle of microteaching to improve supervisor behavior. Six members of a Principles and Practices of Secondary Teaching class assumed the role of teacher in the microteaching situation, and graduate students enrolled in a Principles of Educational Supervision course performed in the role of supervisor. The following activities were recorded on video tape: a) the teacher presented a brief lesson; b) the supervisor and the teacher viewed the video tape and then a conference; c) the teacher presented the same lesson to a different group of students; and d) the supervisor and the teacher viewed the second tape and conferred again. The Blumberg system was used (after the initial teach) to analyze the verbal behavior of supervisors in terms of specific supportive behavior or general supportive behavior. As a group, the conferences which utilized specific behavior produced more change in teacher behavior in the reteach cycle of microteaching than did the general group. (JB)
