Supervisory Involvement of Principals in the Reading Program.
Wurtz, Beatrice Joan
Elementary school principals in two cooperative educational service agencies in Wisconsin were asked to respond to 39 items concerning supervisory involvement of principals in the reading program. Four supervisory strategies were analyzed: directing and controlling, stimulating and initiating, analyzing and appraising, and designing and implementing. Seventy-four respondents indicated their degrees of involvement with each item by responding to a Likert-type scale ranging from (1) "none" to (5) "much." Some of the findings were that elementary school principals recorded the most involvement with the strategy of stimulating and initiating reading programs. The principals recorded the least involvement for the strategy of directing and controlling. Principals with 9 years to 12 years in the position were more involved with the four supervisory strategies than were those in other years-in-position categories. The findings indicated that elementary school principals' involvement with the reading program is limited. (Author/MKM)
