Supervision Models with Respect to Physical Education Needs.
Williams, Lisa G.
This paper focuses on several models of supervision in public schools with respect to needs in physical education. A literature review examined the traditional, counseling-based, self-analysis, competency-based, and systematic supervision models. Findings include the use of each model and the failure of each in the physical education setting. One systematic tool, the Academic Learning Time-Physical Education (ALT-PE) is presented; it measures the portion of time that a student is involved in motor activity at an appropriate success rate. This tool can best be used within the competency-based supervision system. A second tool, the "Qualitative Measures of Teaching Performance Scale (QMTPS)," helps to determine why some teachers are better at effecting student learning than other teachers. This instrument would be best used in clinical supervision and self-analysis models. The study concludes that the systematic supervision model is best for physical education because it combines the best aspects of all the models. Recommendations for the future of physical education in Mississippi are suggested. Appendices provide the two supervision tools (the ALT-PE and the QMTPS). (ND)
