Supervisory Leadership emphasizes leadership practices and covers the concepts, principles, and skills needed to be a successful supervisor. This new, well-researched and comprehensive book describes the supervisor's work with teachers as moving from a deficit model (helping) to a collegial, cooperative, mentoring approach. It also provides helpful connections that describe and support the role of supervisors in school culture.
The authors provide a view of contemporary supervisory practice with particular attention given to the importance of past practices, the work place and culture, leadership qualities, communication skills, models and mechanics of the supervision process, and the process of change and decision-making. Written in a language that is easily understood, Supervisory Leadership provides an interactive, realistic and meaningful learning experience that offers continuous opportunities for readers to reflect upon their own leadership skills development.
For supervisors and educational administrators.
