A Training Program for Reading Supervisors.
Trosky, Odarka S.
It is essential that everyone connected with the supervision of reading be trained so that a system of analyzing reading instruction can be effected. Based on the assumption that the most effective supervision occurs in a one-to-one situation, the training program presented in this document centers on a workshop on supervision with four specific components: preobservation conference, observation of the teaching behavior, strategy and analysis, and postobservation conference. This document describes the application of the workshop training to two different programs, one in a small rural school and one in a large urban elementary school. The feedback from these two school situations indicated that supervision is effective (1) when a supervisor, in a series of conferences, helps a teacher search for and attain common goals; (2) if the teaching episode is observed and analyzed according to the teacher's declared needs; and (3) if time is allocated for supervisory conferences.
