9781475814941: Supervision: New Perspectives for Theory and Practice

Supervision: New Perspectives for Theory and Practice co-edited by two prominent scholars in the field (Jeffrey Glanz and Sally Zepeda), draws attention to supervision as a function that is often misunderstood, under-appreciated, and frequently controversial. Much has changed in the last two decades in the education world. These changes have inevitably influenced the theory and practice of supervision. This text includes some of the top scholars in the field in the USA to offer their insights to important topics and issues in supervision. To strike a balance, the editors also included award-winning practitioners who share their insights about supervision. We hope that this volume raises awareness to several critical issues that affect teachers, administrators, and policy makers.

With the range of topics associated with supervision, we believe that the authors offer an informed and lively discussion of supervision in the present and future contexts of schools. Through our efforts, we believe that the multiple contexts in which supervision unfolds are examined alongside trends including high-stakes testing, the uses of data, the work superintendents do to supervise principals, and the type of supervision that builds a just and caring school culture that is culturally relevant and respectful for teachers and leaders.

Review:

Supervision: New Perspectives for Theory and Practice makes a significant contribution to the literature on supervision by presenting a wide variety of thoughtful perspectives on supervision and evaluation and by examining both preservice and inservice teacher development. Those who are engaged in the study of supervision, evaluation and instructional leadership will find the ideas presented by these well-known authors both refreshing and thought provoking. The inclusion of guiding questions as well as suggested readings provides the reader with an opportunity to deepen his/her understanding of the ideas that are presented here. (James F. Nolan, PhD, professor emeritus, Penn State University)

This timely and important text is evidence that 'Supervision' is a critically important academic discipline with a dedicated community of scholars from whom much can be learned about improving schools and supporting those who work in them. The authors carry forward a long tradition of inquiry that defines and redefines the field. These scholars not only emphasize current issues in supervision, but also identify important concepts that deserve continued study. The text makes clear the importance of scholarship in supervision and the possibilities that scholarship has to improve teaching and learning for the twenty first century. (Bernard Badiali, PhD, associate professor of education (Curriculum & Instruction), Penn State University)

In Supervision: New Perspectives for Theory and Practice, two of the top scholars in the field of instructional supervision have collected the insights of the brightest and best scholars working in the field today. This volume provides a fresh look at the policy, statutory, cultural, and historical challenges confronting those responsible for supervising and evaluating school district personnel. The comprehensive nature and practicality of this book make it a 'must have' for all educators. (R. Stewart Mayers, EdD, professor department of educational instruction and leadership, Southeastern Oklahoma State University)

Congratulations to editors Glanz and Zepeda for orchestrating this collection of contemporary writings by a wide array of university and school based scholars/ practitioners. The book is of immediate and future importance to the way school supervisors lead, collaborate, and act towards achieving the goal of educating all students for new worlds of opportunities. A great service for bringing new energy, thought, and prominence to the field of educational supervision! (Carl Glickman, University Professor Emeritus of Education,The University of Georgia, Athens)
