The Metaphorical Use of Theories and Models in Supervision: Building a Science.
Sergiovanni, Thomas J.
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v2 n3 p221-32 Spr 1987
Argues that knowledge generation and model building in supervision and teaching are mistakenly patterned after the physical sciences instead of the cultural sciences. Also, this mimicry is too simplistic by physical sciences standards. Metaphorical models of research and practice would enhance educators' understanding of reality. Includes 31 notes. (MLH)
