Locating Supervision--A Reflective Framework for Negotiating Tensions within Conceptual and Procedural Foci for Teacher Development
Snow-Gerono, Jennifer L.
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v24 n6 p1502-1515 Aug 2008
This manuscript presents a theoretical construct for analyzing procedural and conceptual tensions within instructional leadership for teacher development. The dynamic, multi-dimensional framework demonstrates possibilities for locating supervision as having procedural and conceptual bases. By employing the questions identified, educators may place themselves within the framework focused on specific areas and located along a procedural to conceptual continuum. Identifying tensions in practice guides educators to be more reflective when engaging in professional growth. Ultimately, teachers need to become empowered to engage in reflective supervision in order to guide professional development, teaching and learning. (Contains 1 figure and 2 tables.)
