National Science Supervisors Association, Washington, DC.
Believing that effective supervision depends upon a well-informed, competent leader, the National Association of Science Supervisors (NSSA) conducted a regional leadership conference for science chairpersons and supervisors (August 10-15, 1980) which focused on (1) increasing leadership skills in selecting supervisory techniques and strategies, and (2) examining trends in science curriculum. Conference topics summarized in this document include: (1) science is a basic; (2) self-assessment guidelines for secondary science; (3) trends in science curriculum; (4) safety and legal liability; (5) chemical safety; (6) interpersonal relations and effective meetings; (7) management skills for science educators; (8) development of reasoning; (9) handling stress and burnout; (10) what research says to the science teacher; (11) new approaches to supervision; (12) objective data gathering in the classroom; (13) federal grants in pre-college science education; and (14) future trends. Names and addresses of presenters are provided for those desiring additional information on a given topic. (Author/SK)
