Overview

A practical guide to becoming an instructional leader

Updated to reflect changes and advances in the supervision of teachers, this highly respected text provides a comprehensive overview of the field of instructional supervision, including instructional development, curriculum development, and staff development. Throughout, the authors emphasize practice, particularly the supervisor’s responsibilities as instructional leader.

Highlights:

  • Expanded coverage of diversity, the use of technology, group development, action research, national and state academic standards and testing, No Child Left Behind, and the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.
  • An opening chapter on the roles of the school supervisor, which looks at the field of supervision and its history. The book emphasizes the need for a trusting relationship between supervisors and teachers.
  • A conceptual model of instructional supervision consisting of three domains, four supervisory roles, and foundations of supervision.
  • A close look at fourteen major issues in supervision, along with the authors' position on each of the issues. These issues help readers become aware of the complexity of the field of supervision and help them form their own positions on the issues.
