1 Review

This classic market leading text in instructional leadership and supervision continues to challenge the conventional purposes, practices, structure, and language of successful education.

This ground breaking book, now in its fifth edition, further challenges and bridges the boundaries of Supervision, Instructional Leadership, Educational Change, and School Success. The change in title to SuperVision and Instructional Leadership signifies the need and reality of viewing school improvement as a whole; accounting for complexity, paradoxes, and shifting reforms. This book once again pushes into new frontiers of thinking and practice.

Building on the success of previous editions, the fifth edition now addresses hot issues such as school improvements, constructivist teaching, professional development, Chaos Theory, and state mandated standards. This is a resource that students purchase, use in class, and reference throughout their careers as education leaders.
