SuperVision and Instructional Leadership encourages you to take a collegial approach to supervision, collaborating with other supervisors and teachers for the enhancement of teaching and learning. Recognized for its guiding ideas and approaches, this book applies innovative fields outside of education to instructional supervision, such as adult education, systems thinking, and chaos theory. You will learn the background knowledge needed for successful supervision, as well as ways to develop your interpersonal and technical skills. Coverage of technical and cultural tasks ensures you understand the responsibilities required of you to be a successful leader and advocate for all teachers and students.

The 11th Edition keeps pace with the purposes, practices, structure and language of supervision today. New field exercises connect theory to practice. An enhanced commitment to equity examines strategies for promoting positive change at the classroom, school and societal level.
