Supervision--A New Approach to In-Service Teacher Education.
Shapiro, Phyllis; And Others
On the assumption that the fundamental purpose of teacher supervision is the improvement of the teaching/learning process, supervision is viewed as a tool which can improve instruction if it is based on cooperative mechanisms involving all of the interested parties. From a background of both empirical work and conceptual analysis, a framework is presented for a multi-step process for teacher superision, a process which includes an experimental observation instrument based on Festinger's theory of cognitive dissonance. Each phase of the program is discussed with particular stress on the active role of the teacher in the inservice process. (Six references are listed.) (Author)
