The Effects of a Behavioral Model of Supervision on the Supervisory Behaviors of Cooperating Teachers.
Ocansey, Reginald T. A.
The purpose of this study was to train cooperating teachers in a Behavioral Model of Supervision (BMS-PE). Four cooperating teachers in suburban school districts in central Ohio were trained using this model that emphasized communicating feedback with more details and holding teachers more accountable for their performances during post-teaching conferences through the supervision components of monitoring, conference, and follow-up monitoring. Findings clearly indicated that cooperating teachers can perform supervisory functions as a result of training in a BMS-PE. Specific results included: an increase in the amount of time spent by participants in micro-incident and planning incident categories, a decrease in the time spent by participants in unrelated incident and macro-incident categories, an increase in the communication of fully explicit tasks and type-3 accountability statements, and a decrease in the communication of implicit tasks and type-1 accountability statements. A six-page reference list is included. (Author/CB)
