Now there is a text that provides students with a comprehensive blueprint for supervisory practice in the field of education. In "Supervision in Education" Bernadette Marczely draws on her expertise in both law and education to fully explain different methods of supervision and to carefully identify the legal issues that drive each approach. The book presents the information future educational administrators need to know, plus it offers helpful pointers on what they need to do. Students will learn: how to understand the distinction between evaluation and supervision; how to personalize supervision to address unique professional needs; why legally effective evaluation requires evidence of preliminary supervision; why teachers, administrators, certified and noncertified staff all merit thoughtful supervision; and what legal and management implications to anticipate from different methods of supervision. Job descriptions, tables for differentiated supervision, case citations, and supervisory forms and procedures reinforce the text and help students apply the material in their future practice.
Bernadette Marczely is the director of the graduate program in Educational Supervision at Cleveland State University.
