Management Models in Teacher Supervision.
Wyckoff, Winnefred L.
The paper examines four management models that could be adopted for use by teacher supervisors. Specifically, the models discussed deal with communication, the Managerial Grid, planning, and the decision-making/problem-solving process. The communication model examines four interaction approaches: developmental, controlling, relinquishing, and defending. The Managerial Grid looks at the relationship between a concern for people and a concern for production or performance. The planning model examines four planning approaches: purposeful, traditional, entrepreneurial, and crisis. The planning process examines objective setting, problem-solving, decision-making, and programming. The author takes the position that such models help clarify supervisory practice into meaningful constructs. Further, since the models focus on the tools necessary for effective instructional and rational decision-making, the use of such models in supervision puts into practice those very processes that supervisees are expected to demonstrate in the classroom.
