This manual provides an overview of the contents of a program focusing on supervisors' communication skills and strategies that enhance teachers' abilities to reflect, learn, and apply insights to their own actions when teaching. It is intended for principals, supervisors, mentors, department chairs, master teachers, teacher educators, peer coaches, and other personnel involved in classroom supervision. It includes, in the skills section of the program presentation, an explanation of the conferencing skills of trust building, questioning, responding, and empowering. The first Practice Program includes an edited sixth-grade math/art lesson with the accompanying teacher and supervisor pre- and postconferences. Practice Program II is an edited high school chemistry class with the accompanying teacher and supervisor pre- and postconferences. The transcripts of these practice programs are annotated with comments from the trainers and supervisors. The manual also contains outlines and trainer notes for an extensive sequence of workshops and the handouts and activities necessary for conducting successful training sessions. Transcripts for the tapes of Practice I and Practice II are included along with comments about the interaction to facilitate their use in the workshop. (JD)
