Supervision: Emerging Profession. Readings from "Educational Leadership."
Leeper, Robert R., Ed.
This collection of 65 articles related to the profession of educational supervision is intended primarily for use with students in teacher education. Represented in the single volume are articles from a decade of writing (1960-69) by leaders in the "emerging profession" of supervision. The essays, which cover a wide range of subjects in their attempt to "analyze current needs and to project sound proposals for meeting them in the perspective of the future," fall into five major sections: "Leadership: Talent for Growth"; "Issues in Professionalization"; "Research: Instrument for New Knowledge"; "The Supervisor at Work"; "Supervision: Its Potential." In his introduction to the collection, Fred T. Wilhelms stresses that in the midst of the great ferment and growth of the last decade--both of which are reflected in the content of this book--one thing is certain: "the need for organized leadership, always great, is going to increase. The forms will change; the structure of staff organization will change; the nature and extent of participation by teachers and others will change. But the need for trained, dedicated leaders will not change--except to grow." This book is intended to help meet that need. (Author/ES)
