A Collaborative Approach to Leadership in Supervision: Project Portrayal. Part A of the Final Report.
Oja, Sharon Nodie; Ham, Maryellen C.
This is a report of the development and implementation of a collaborative program at the University of New Hampshire which focuses on the preparation of public school cooperating teachers as more effective supervisors of both graduate student interns and undergraduate students who are exploring teaching as a career. Specifically, the program expects experienced practicing teachers to play a major role in the preservice instruction of teachers, to assist with the continued growth of inservice teachers, and to assume the role of initiator or change agent in curriculum. The report includes: (1) project description and evolution; (2) major issues, strategies, and collaborative approaches; (3) major outcomes and findings; (4) institutionalized features of the project; (5) project implications and lessons learned; and (6) product development. Tables are appended showing the phases of the project, two approaches to supervision, dissemination activities, theoretical framework in collaborative supervision, and a summary of process/content outcomes and assessments.
