Starting from superdifferential operators in an N=1 superfield formulation, we present a systematic prescription for the derivation of classical N=1 and N=2 super W algebras by imposing a zero-curvature condition on the connection of the corresponding first-order system. We illustrate the procedure on the first nontrivial example (beyond the N=1 superconformal algebra) and also comment on the relation with the Gelfand-Dickey construction of W algebras.
