The Use of Systematic Observation by a Public School Supervisor: Does It Make a Difference?
Paese, Paul C.; Hodge, Glenda Ruth
The purpose of this study was to ascertain if changes could be made in the teaching effectiveness of an experienced secondary physical education teacher by a colleague acting as the change agent. Both clinical and instructional models of supervision were used and goals were established on several criterion process variables that were monitored. Statistically significant improvements were not found on the variables monitored, but the overall process of instruction did improve. The teacher's attitude toward this type of supervision was favorable. Results lend credence to the trend of empowering teachers rather than administrators with more responsibility for improving instruction in public schools. (Author)
