Supervision in education : problems and practices by Daniel Tanner( Book )

8 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While supervision is recognized as a crucial aspect of organized education, it has received less attention than it deserves. This book treats educational supervision as a cooperative problem-solving process, rather than an aversive inspection for staff deficiencies. Part I describes benefits of the developmental approach. Part ii focuses on the administrative organization of supervision and supervisory roles and functions. The importance of a functional, organic organizational format is stressed, since mechanistic, hierarchical structures impede communication and discourage a team approach to confronting and resolving emergent problems. Also examined are material support for teachers, democratic leadership roles for administrators, and conflicting purposes of supervision. Part iii explores supervision in relation to school climate, conflicting models, teacher effectiveness, and common classroom problems. A participative, democratic system is the most desirable. Part iv examines forces for educational improvement as a response to wider sociopolitical influences. Schools are urged to adopt a "generative-creative" operating model instead of functioning at an "imitative-maintenance" level of knowledgeability. Part v addresses curriculum supervision issues, while Part vi focuses on staff development and school improvement. Each chapter contains questions, notes, and selected references. The book also has name and subject indexes. (Mlh)

Teacher Knowledge-Ability and Pupil Achievement by Daniel Tanner( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effectiveness of schools and the levels of investment in schooling have been in question since the 1966 Coleman report "Equality of Educational Opportunity." Based on a theory of "knowledge-ability," this study challenges the assumption that given "inputs" will yield equivalent effects or "outputs." In this study, 120 elementary schools were randomly selected, and questionnaires were mailed to the principals eliciting background data on the school, its pupil population, resources, and faculty. Each principal was asked to identify the three "most outstanding" teachers in the third-, fourth-, and fifth-grade levels. The teachers were mailed questionnaires and inventory checklists of approved instructional practices that represent tested pedagogical techniques supported by authorities and research evidence. The extent to which approved practices were reported being utilized provided some measure of the level of knowledge-ability of the teachers. The variation in teacher knowledge-ability within schools was found to be considerably greater than the interschool differences in knowledge-ability. In conclusion, the authors suggest that the study of knowledge-ability of teacher populations rather than of schools will likely be a more productive avenue for improving the effectiveness of schooling.
