Competencies and Indicators for English Supervisors.
Schiff, Peter M.
A group of supervisors of student-teachers developed a list of competencies that educators of student-teachers should be able to demonstrate and then developed activities, or indicators, that would allow educators to demonstrate these competencies in their own subject areas. The competency indicators/activities were tested by English supervisors in post observation conferences with student-teachers. The supervisors worked from the rationale that many of the language arts activities they suggested for the student-teachers might have value in developing their own supervisory competencies. As an aid in examining the learning situation, student-teachers were asked to draw pictures of themselves in the classroom environment and then to consider the spatial and sociometric relationships which were revealed; the supervisors did the same for the conference environment. Student-teachers also kept logs in which they recorded cognitive-oriented teaching actions and corresponding affective responses; supervisors kept their own conference logs. These and other self-training activities did lead to improvement in the supervisors' skills. (GW)
