Supervision: In Retrospect and Prospect.
Irvine, Freeman R., Jr.
This literature review presents a concise chronology of supervision as it evolved on the American scene. It is emphasized that supervision has a unique definition for each user. Supervision in America evolved out of a basic school pattern inherited from the European school system. The early definition and concept of this position was vague. The first type of supervision was that implied in the head teacher concept. Eventually the school boards organized committees to inspect the schools. From these committees a single individual emerged as the overseer of the schools. This in turn led to the position of the superintendent. The normal school, elementary school, and the school district were among the agencies that influenced the development of supervision. These institutions were responsible for a number of varying supervisory positions or titles. (HW)
