9780070578913: Supervision: A Redefinition

This edition continues to promote a new vision of supervision from that of a top-down activity performed by higher ups in the school hierarchy, to one in which supervision is a shared activity involving all stake-holders in the school including teachers, administrators, and parents. The book sees schools as communities rather than organizations, and emphasizes the student-teacher relationship rather than bureaucratic functions. This edition of the text continues to emphasize the moral implications of supervision and teaching. The revision places greater emphasis on the role of community and the link between the learning community, students, and teachers. A new chapter 4, "Community as a Force for Change," argues that teachers must assume more responsibility in order to bring about reform. Chapter 6 now redefines collegiality more deeply as a self-obligation to collaborate with others.
