Science and Scientism in Supervision and Teaching.
Sergiovanni, Thomas J.
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v4 n2 p93-105 Win 1989
Defines and discusses the extremes of "poetism" (or overreliance on intuition) and "scientism" (overreliance on research-based models) in teaching and supervision. Argues that teaching is neither an art nor a science, but more like a craft that skilled teachers practice as artisans, combining technique and reflection. (TE)
