Adapting the Six Category Intervention Analysis To Promote Facilitative Type Supervisory Feedback in Teaching Practice.
Hamid, Bahiyah Abdul; Azman, Hazita
A discussion of the supervision preservice language teacher trainees focuses on supervisory methods designed to facilitate clear, useful, enabling feedback to the trainee. Specifically, it looks at use of the Six Category Intervention Analysis, a model for interpersonal skills training, for supervision of teaching practice. The model is seen here as more than a tool kit of helping interventions, but as a set of person-centered values and attitudes about the support and empowerment of individuals in developing their potential. Language used by supervisors is analyzed for both linguistic content and intention to point up the significance of grammatical form and choice of words in an intervention in conveying information precisely. The model allows analysis of six categories of intervention: prescriptive, informative, and confronting, all reflecting authoritative intention on the part of the supervisor; and cathartic, catalytic, and supportive, reflecting facilitative intention. It is proposed that supervisory feedback is most precise when a balance between authoritative and facilitative intention is maintained. Three kinds of intervention are distinguished: valid (appropriate); degenerate (failing in one or more respect); and perverted (deliberately malicious). (MSE)
