The Effect of Preservice Clinical Supervision on Beginning Teachers.
Berg, Marlowe; And Others
To strengthen the performance and commitment of beginning teachers by improving the supervision and support student teachers receive, the California State University established the Clinical Supervision Initiative (CSI) in 1984. This paper describes the Far West Laboratory Mini-Studies investigation of beginning teachers. The triad study constituted a two-year investigation of the use of clinical supervision practices during preservice training and its effect on beginning teacher performance. Clinical supervision requires a professional relationship among university supervisor, cooperating teacher, and student teacher. The clinical supervision component was designed to add to the triad relationship a clearer sense of role and responsibility in preservice training and a commitment to student teacher self-evaluation. A description is given of a clinical supervision model--Partners in Supervision. A concern of the study was to identify the problems and problem-solving actions of novice teachers and explore the impact of socialization mechanisms on problem-solving approaches. The positive relationship found between the impact of preservice supervision and problem-solving reported by beginning teachers who were clinically supervised suggests that training in self-analysis of the teaching experience can have an important transfer to problem-solving in the first year of teaching.
