Supervision as Cultural Inquiry.
Flinders, David J.
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v6 n2 p87-106 Win 1991
Describes a framework for "culturally responsive supervision." An understanding of analogic or iconic metaphors reveals the power of language to shape what are regarded as matters of fact. Kinesics, proxemics, and prosody bring into focus channels of nonverbal communication. The concept of "framing" calls attention to the metamessages of verbal and nonverbal communication.
