Collaborative and Nondirective Supervisory Behaviors
Transcript of Collaborative and Nondirective Supervisory Behaviors
by Erik Albertine
Collaborative Supervisory Behavior
"The supervisory using collaborative behaviors wishes to resolve a problem that is shared equally with the teacher" (Glickman, Gordon & Ross-Gordon, 2014, p. 131).
Both the supervisor and the teacher have a stake in the process and in the decision
Nondirective Supervisory Behavior
"The decision belongs to the teacher. The role of the supervisor is to assist the teacher in the process of thinking through his or her actions" (Glickman, Gordon & Ross-Gordon, 2014, p. 140).
The supervisor guides the teacher to the action that they know they should take
A teacher goes to the principal with a problem that they have seen in their department. The principal listens carefully while the teacher speaks, asking probing questions to clarify the problem. Once the teacher has clarified the problem, the principal asks the teacher for suggestions on how to solve the problem. With each suggestion, the principal asks further questions to clarify the teacher's perception on how they would work, eventually allowing the teacher to come to a decision.
A teacher goes to the principal with a problem that affects the whole school. The principal was unaware of the problem, so she sits down with the teacher to discuss the problem. While the teacher presents ideas that he has, the principal listens carefully and asks probing questions to learn more. Afterward, the principal speaks about what they see occurring. After all perceptions are presented, the two discuss possible solutions. The two decide together what to do about the problem, then put that into action.
