Removing the "Super" from Supervision.
Poole, Wendy L.
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v9 n3 p284-309 Spr 1994
Supportive supervision softens the hierarchical supervisory relationship by formally redistributing authority between administrators and teachers. The coaching metaphor emerging from the self-directed supervision option foreshadows the extinction of the superordinate/subordinate relationship. Supervisory situations may evolve into relationships between reciprocal coaches without relinquishing administrator authority or teacher accountability. (Contains 26 references.) (MLH)
