Supervision for Today's Schoolsby Peter F. Oliva, George Pawlas
Supervision for Today's Schools adheres/i>
The fifth edition of this book remains an overview of the field of instructional supervision. This textbook was planned to acquaint the student with views on supervision and integrate theory and practice.The book leans toward practice, with heavy emphasis on the supervisor's responsibilities as an instructional leader.
Supervision for Today's Schools adheres to the belief that supervisors should look at teaching before looking at the teacher, focusing on generic instructional skills that can be learned and improved.
The text introduces the reader to threee domains of supervision: instructional development, curriculum development, and staff development. This text, which has found wide acceptance among trainers of supervisors and practitioners in its previous editions, reflects positions held by many, perhaps the majority of, practicing supervision specialists. The textbook reflects the status of instructional supervision as it currently functions in school systems throughout the country and as it is practiced by many dedicated, experienced individuals at local school, district, and state levels.
