Supervision in Early Childhood Education: A Developmental Perspective (2nd ed.)
Joseph J. Caruso, M. Temple Fawcett
This book about supervising staff in early care and education addresses issues and methods pertinent to personnel working in a variety of public and private settings for young children, including programs for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, school-age child care centers, kindergartens, and family child care homes. It has four major sections. In Part 1, supervisory myths are challenged in order to ease the burden under which supervisors carryout out their work. Then the various types of early childhood programs and the people who work in them are described from the perspective of the supervisor's role. The development of supervisors and supervisees, their relationship to each other, and implications for planning supervisory approaches are explored in Part 2. Part 3 offers some basic information and suggestions for observing, holding conferences, and evaluating staff within the context of a clinical supervision approach. Several significant issues that affect staff morale and effectiveness are examined in Part 4, followed by suggestions for designing various types of staff development and training, and some specific tools for putting these plans into practice. Appendices include recommendations for effective early childhood education for students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and organizational resources. (Contain approximately 200 references.)
