One Supervisory Relationship.
Champagne, David W.; David, Robert J.
A report is presented of the changes and developments in the relationship between an experienced elementary school teacher and the university supervisor assigned to observe and critique his classroom performance over a period of 15 weeks. Each kept a weekly journal of private thoughts and reactions during the course of the supervision. These journal entries are presented in parallel lists revealing each individual's personal progression in interpreting and reflecting upon the events of the same session. A narrative summation describes in detail the development, outcomes, and possible implications for a teacher and supervisor of an intense, continuing supervisory relationship. An analysis is presented of what changes in perceptions, feelings and beliefs of the teacher and the supervisor about teaching and supervision occurred. Behaviors of the supervisor and teacher which were perceived by each to be helpful in producing satisfactory results are identified. Some implications are discussed about the possibilities, objectives, and limitations of this sort of supervision in improving teaching. (JD)
