Those who are engaged in the study of supervision, evaluation and instructional leadership will find the ideas presented by these well-known authors both refreshing and thought provoking. The inclusion of guiding questions as well as suggested readings provides the reader with an opportunity to deepen his/her understanding of the ideas that are presented here. -- James F.

This timely and important text is evidence that 'Supervision' is a critically important academic discipline with a dedicated community of scholars from whom much can be learned about improving schools and supporting those who work in them. The authors carry forward a long tradition of inquiry that defines and redefines the field. These scholars not only emphasize current issues in supervision, but also identify important concepts that deserve continued study. The text makes clear the importance of scholarship in supervision and the possibilities that scholarship has to improve teaching and learning for the twenty first century. -- Bernard Badiali, PhD, associate professor of education (Curriculum & Instruction), Penn State University

Stewart Mayers, EdD, professor department of educational instruction and leadership, Southeastern Oklahoma State University
