By focusing on the skills needed for success, rather than the skills demanded by specific positions or tasks, this universally-applicable book prepares future educators to meet the challenges of contemporary educational environments. The authors imbue this book with the findings of relevant contemporary research through the extensive use of case studies, scenarios, and illustrations—connecting chapter content to real-world problems in education. Material is organized by skills, such as pedagogy, human relations, staff development, and program design, in order to emphasize the supervisor's role in coordinating the various administrative, curricular, and instructional concerns involved in providing instruction in today's demanding multicultural settings. Features broad, extensive coverage of the connection between teaching and the curriculum. Coverage of technology familiarizes future educators with current educational aids—examines the pros and cons of increasing reliance on technology and provides guidelines for evaluating new technology as it is developed. Extensive material on alternative certifications (in Chapter 10)—provides coverage of the realities of alternatives, their advantages and disadvantages, and how to pursue a specific goal. For future educators or those pursuing a variety of career paths that fall under the ¿umbrella¿ of supervision.
