For graduate-level Educational Supervision courses. By focusing on the skills needed for success, rather than the skills demanded by specific positions or tasks, this universally-applicable text prepares future educators to meet the challenges of contemporary educational environments. The authors imbue this text with the findings of relevant contemporary research through the extensive use of case studies, scenarios, and illustrations that bring its challenging content to life. Material is organized by skills, such as pedagogy, human relations, staff development, and program design, in order to emphasize the supervisor's role in coordinating the various administrative, curricular, and instructional concerns involved in providing instruction in today's demanding multicultural settings.
