Teacher Supervision That Works: A Guide for University Supervisors

Synopsis

This work is a practical guide for university supervisors that examines the supervisory process, the preparation necessary for supervision, the responsibilities of the university supervisor, the historical assumption underlying the supervisory role, and what research tells us about effective supervision. It provides background information on topics such as discipline in the schools and curricular concerns, and summarizes research about what the supervisor needs to know on the philosophical, psychological, and sociological foundations of education.

Excerpt

The college supervisor has a critical and central role in the program of teacher education; the assignment of that role should not be made lightly.

Florence B. Stratemeyer

Florence B. Stratemeyer's 1964 statement is even more true today. The need for outstanding university supervisors who balance the needs and interests of the student, the university, and the K-12 school has never been greater. They are the link between institutions of higher learning and public and private schools. The strength of this very fragile link is determined by how well supervisors are prepared for their role. A knowledgeable supervisor who can objectively help the student teacher and represent the university while remaining sensitive to the needs of both the cooperating teacher and the cooperating school is the epitome of a university supervisor. Such a supervisor does make a difference!

Teachers impact, for good or evil, thousands during their careers. How they interact with students, what values they pass on, what learnings they deem important--these and countless attitudes are internalized during student teaching.
