Equipping Children With Supervisory Skills.
Whitfield, Edie L.; Anderson, Robert H.
The professional growth of teachers and improvement in teaching skills are often the results of skillful use by supervisors of clinical procedures of observation in both inservice workshops and student teaching situations. The observation cycle for improving pupil learning has five stages: (1) pre-observation conference between the student observers and the observed student; (2) actual observation of a student working; (3) review by the observation team; (4) post-observation conference with the student; and (5) analysis of the cycle just completed. The concept of clinical supervision, when adapted for use with children, provides valuable learning experiences. Children can benefit when involved in this orderly cycle of peer observation in such activities as learning center participation, speech making, and discussions. While teachers improve instructional skills in clinical supervision, children can use the same techniques to improve learning skills. (JD)
