When to Use Collaborative Behaviors 1.When the teacher or group is functioning at moderate or mixed developmental levels 2.When the teacher or group and the supervisor have approximately the same degree of expertise 3.When the teacher or group and the supervisor will both be involved in carrying out the decision and both will be held accountable for showing results 4.When the teacher or group and the supervisor are both committed to solving the problem
Critical Reflection on Collaborative Supervision Beyond my mechanical use of collaborative behaviors, have I really given the individual or group equal decision-making power regarding the problem to be solved? Have I verified that the teacher or group perceives the decision-making process to be collaborative? Have I accepted conflict and reassured the teacher or group that disagreement is part of the decision-making process? Have I continued the collaborative process toward a solution acceptable to both the teacher or group and me?
Practitioner Reflection: Going Beyond Collaborative Language How did the author work collaboratively with others? How do you work collaboratively with others at your school? As a supervisor, how can you encourage your faculty and staff to work collaboratively?
