This bulletin is one of a series of publications reporting the findings of investigations undertaken during 1936-37 under the Project in Research in Universities of the Office of Education. The Project in Research in Universities represents a unique and significant innovation in cooperative research. Sixty universities and comparable institutions located in 32 States, the District of Columbia, and Hawaii combined efforts with the Office of Education to conduct 40 studies, 23 of which were proposed by the Office and 17 by the institutions. The study reported in this bulletin presents a survey of the opportunities offered, by normal schools, teachers colleges, universities, and colleges of arts and sciences for the preparation of supervisors of elementary school instruction as revealed by a study of the institutions' catalogs and by replies to a questionnaire. It analyzes the offerings of these institutions for both general and subject supervisors in order to determine the nature of the curricula and courses offered and to indicate trends in the preparation provided for elementary school supervisors by comparing current offerings with those repeated in previous studies. The study reveals the present status of supervisory training as offered in the various types of teacher-education institutions. Institutions Offering Curricula are appended. Individual sections contain footnotes. (Contains 10 tables.) [For related reports, see "Project in Research in Universities: Opportunities for the Preparation of Teachers of Exceptional Children.
