When to Use Directive Informational Behaviors

Directive Informational Behaviors
Directive informational behaviors revolve on:
Issues with this Approach
The supervisor must be confident that he or she knows what practices will work and help the teacher, and the teacher must believe it too.
Idea 1
Idea 2
Directive Informational vs. Directive Control
Language is key.
When to Use Directive Informational Behaviors
Use the following guidelines to help determine
when directive informational behaviors are needed.
Describe the idea you think is best
Directive informational supervision is used to help guide the teacher in considering practices that would improve self and/or student performance.
The supervisor is the expert.
Confidence and Credibility
The teacher is confident that the supervisor is knowledgeable and will not lead him or her astray.
Limiting Choice
The supervisor provides selective resolution choices for the teacher to choose from.
Directive Control
Similar to a judge or police officer:

- directives are given that MUST be followed

-no choices
Directive Informational
Similar to a physician or attorney

- expert advice is given

- advice does not have to be followed but is highly adviced
-The teacher follows the advice because he or she believes the supervisor's expertise will lead to success.
Use when the teacher:
- is at low developmental levels

-lacks the knowledge about the issue

-believes the supervisor is credible
Use when the supervisor:
-knows successful practices and solutions

-is willing to accept responsibility for the teacher's actions and the results of the change

-needs to make a quick decision
Use when the teacher needs help and the supervisor knows how to help.
The teacher receives much needed guidance and advice.
The supervisor is ultimately responsible for the success or failure of the practice suggested to the teacher.
Be Careful with the Language
Issue sound, highly recommended suggests,

NOT demands.
