The Influence of Supervisory Roles.
Parsons, G. Llewellyn
Supervisory roles perceived by teachers as the most influential in affecting their behavior with respect to the content, processes, or outcomes of their teaching were those of principal; "other teachers"; program consultant; inspector; assistant or vice-principal; area, district, or regional superintendent; and resource teacher. This report deals with the number and percent of teachers identifying each role as influential and the relationship of type and size of school, sex, grade level taught, experience, and professional preparation of teachers to teachers' perceptions of the influence of 26 different supervisory roles. Perceptions of influence ranked the principal as having the most influential supervisory role; "other teachers" as influencing the behavior of beginning teachers; program consultants and inspectors as most influential (by certain female teachers); vice-principals as most influential (by public, city school teachers with two to three years professional training and teaching of intermediate grades in medium or large size schools); the area superintendent as most influential (by certain county female teachers teaching in large schools); and resource teachers as most influential (by teachers at the primary and junior grade levels).
