Transcript of What are the differences among directive control, directive

Directive Control
The supervisor is more knowledgeable than the teacher about the topic
Supervisor will be held responsible for the outcome and is more committed to resolving the issue than the teacher
Supervisor behaviors:
identifies the problem, determines the best solution and details expectations
Teacher behaviors:
low functioning due to limited experience, awareness, knowledge or inclination
What are the differences among directive control, directive informational, collaborative, and non-directive behaviors?

Directive Informational
Supervisor ultimately has the primary decision making capacity but allows the teacher(s) to choose between several choices towards the goal
Supervisor behaviors:
delineating clear and concise expectations, setting goals and best practices including input received from the teacher
Teacher behaviors:
choice between alternative solutions using the available information, collaborating with the supervisor to problem solve
Teacher and supervisor have equal responsibility in problem solving
Teachers are given trust and autonomy in decision making
Supervisor behaviors:
earn trust and respect of teachers, provide the opportunity for open dialogue and communication, let teachers take the lead but provide support
Teacher behaviors:
developmental, instructional expertise and commitment levels are demonstrated as moderately high, openly share feelings and opinions
Teachers arrive at their own learning solutions through a collaborative process
