This study is an attempt:

1. To present the supervisory program now in use
2. To set up a proposed supervisory program

(a) To improve the instruction of teachers in service that they may be able to direct the pupils' learning activities.

(b) To train student-teachers in order that they may make better teachers.

The scope of this study is limited to the effort of Bethel Woman's College to train teachers in service and student-teachers by the use of its supervisory program in the demonstration school. It is so limited in order to make a more thorough study of these factors. It does not come within the scope of a study of this nature to include all the factors that one might wish to include. The supervisory program includes only the first four grades of the demonstration school.
