The Basic Guide to SuperVision and Instructional Leadership, Second Edition This brief version of the classic, market-leading text in instructional leadership and supervision continues to challenge and expand the conventional structure of successful supervision. New to This Edition The relationship of school improvement with the local community and larger society is explored to show how school change is relevant to all phases of life (Chapters 2 and 3). The text now connects supervision with cultural diversity and social justice so that school leaders can act in accordance with these new realities (Chapters 2, 3, 4, 5, 14, 16, 19, 20, and 22). Supervisor self-assessment is included to illustrate how school leaders can reflect on and change their behaviors (Chapter 5). In addition, critical reflection on supervisory behaviors is emphasized where appropriate (Chapters 8, 9, 10, and 11). The new section "Expanding Boundaries: Alternative Approaches to Action Research" shows how supervisors can work more closely with classroom teachers (Chapter 20). All new "Applying Moral Principles to a Moral Dilemma" discusses ethical supervision in relation to No Child Left Behind (Chapter 22).
