Simulation: A Performance-Based Program for Supervising Teachers.
Wolfe, Richard O.
The use of simulation as an instructional alternative for in-service training of supervising teachers becomes increasingly more worthy of study. In reference to the student teacher/supervising teacher relationship, research indicates that the development of communication skills, cultural value systems, professional attitudes and self concept are significant elements in its success or failure. By integrating these factors into a developmental sequence, a three dimensional model for determining the various behavioral competencies needed for supervising teachers evolves. This model indicates that it is essential for the beginning student teacher/supervising teacher relationship for the supervisor to indicate through attitude and verbal commitment to the students in the class and the student teacher that the status of the latter is as a partner in the classroom instructional process. Having decided that this behavior is essential to the success of the student teaching experience, one must construct within the simulation the strategies to achieve it and the means to assess behavior at the program's exit point. Upon completion of simulation inservice training, supervising teachers will be able to perform various essential competencies with proficiency but not in an isolated environment. (JA)
