This ground-breaking text in instructional leadership and supervision continues to challenge and reshape the conventional purposes, practices, structure, and language of supervision.The text's emphasis on school culture, teachers as adult learners, developmental leadership, democratic education, and collegial supervision has helped redefine the meaning of supervision and instructional leadership for both scholars and practitioners. This Eighth Edition continues the book's trend-setting tradition by placing instructional leadership and school improvement within a community and societal context; providing new examples of direct assistance, professional development, and action research; and presenting three new chapters: "Facilitating Change, ' 'Addressing Diversity, ' and 'Building Community.'Building on the success of previous editions, the Eighth Edition addresses hot issues such as school improvement, 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.
