Formal Teacher Supervision by Teachers in a Career Ladder.
Hart, Ann Weaver
An investigation was made of a school district career ladder plan that includes formal responsibility for the supervision, mentoring, and professional growth of the novice/probationary teachers in the schools as a direct part of teacher leader responsibilities. The district career ladder attempts to address greater initial teaching success, organizational support for professional contact, a collaborative setting and structure to support it, the separation of summative and formative evaluation, training in clinical supervision, and the development of an ethos of improvement. District level data for establishment of environmental setting and influence included written documents and a sample frame of twenty interviews with key personnel. School level data were gathered from teacher leaders, probationary teachers, and administrators from the two junior high schools in the district. A description of career ladder teacher activities includes discussions on how the plan functions, the responsibilities of leader teachers, clinical supervision activities, relationships among the participants, problems encountered, and successes achieved.
