Description: This leading 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. The Ninth Edition maintains its comprehensive approach to supervision and instructional leadership and presents new and engaging material throughout. Chapters on knowledge, interpersonal skills, technical skills, technical tasks, and cultural tasks for successful supervision and instructional leadership are included, and the authors emphasize the importance of collegiality, understanding adult learning and development, reflective inquiry, democracy, addressing diversity, the change process, and community building. This is a resource that students purchase, use in class, and reference throughout their careers as educational leaders.
