Readings in Educational Supervision, Volume 2.
Bruce, Ray E., Comp.; Grimsley, Edith E., Comp.
This collection of readings (mostly from "Educational Leadership") is directed to leaders in educational settings who are responsible for curriculum development, professional growth, and improving instruction. The selections are organized under eight topics: (1) history, nature, and purposes of educational supervision; (2) organization for supervisory services; (3) human skills in supervision; (4) supervisory techniques for planning and managing educational programs; (5) the supervisor as facilitator in the improvement of teaching and learning; (6) the supervisor as leader in curriculum development; (7) the supervisor as a leader in staff development; and (8) the supervisor as a researcher and member of the profession. For each of these major topics, an overview introduces selected readings. The overview establishes the contribution and relationship of that topic to educational supervision and provides questions in order to direct the reader to the interaction between the articles. There is also a "Guide for Readers," designed to aid instructors and students. In the form of a matrix, the guide lists nine major textbooks in the field of educational supervison and shows the intersection with the articles in this collection. Resources are included in each separate article. (LMS)
