Using the Curriculum Process as the Basis for Supervision/Leadership within a Collegial Environment.
Niemeyer, Roger; Hatfield, Robert
This paper is a proposal for supervision focusing on a definition of and rationale for leadership roles that provide support, development, and implementation of the curriculum process together with a school organization structure accommodating these roles and purposes. First, general perspectives on the supervisory process are offered, followed by a description of the rationale for and conceptual view of supervision. The implementation of a proposed supervisory model is described. As the organizational structure evolves over time most teachers would be expected to be members of Faculty Curriculum Teams, with each team responsible for the development, implementation, and effectiveness of the curriculum which they are responsible to teach. The curriculum team works in conjunction with the Building Curriculum Councils and the District Curriculum Forum. The paper ends with a description of the assumptions underlying the supervisory model. Appended are 21 references. (SI)
