Arkansas Principals' Attitudes Concerning the Program for Effective Teaching Model (Hunter Model).
Terry, Paul M.
This study was conducted to compare the attitudes of Arkansas elementary and secondary school principals toward the Madeline Hunter clinical supervision model "Program for Effective Teaching (PET)." A survey instrument titled "Attitudes of Principals Toward PET" was mailed to every elementary and secondary public school principal (1,067) in the state. Respondents (N=459) provided demographic data including the number of PET training cycles each had completed. The survey instrument measured the subskills of attitude, quality, enhance, and coaching. Attitude measured the general attitudes of principals toward the PET program; quality measured principals' attitudes as to how well their PET training was conducted; enhance measured the principals' perceived enhancement of their supervisory skills; and coach focused on the principals' PET maintenance skills as well as maintenance of the PET program in their school buildings. According to the data analysis, there was a significant difference between the elementary and secondary principals' attitudes toward the PET model. Recommendations were made for further study with secondary principals concerning their need for enhancement of coaching skills. Copies of the survey instrument and various items of correspondence are appended. (Contains 44 references.) (Author/LL)
