Description

For principals and other instructional leaders

For use as a text in courses in Supervision and Introduction to Educational Administration

 

Reaching beyond traditional supervision books, this guide asserts that teachers and principals must work as colleagues to improve teaching and learning in schools.

 

This fresh approach to supervision goes beyond the outmoded concept in which the principal rates the effectiveness of teachers. A first-of-its-kind, the book brings principals and other instructional leaders up to date on the current theories of teaching and learning, as well as the practical curriculum applications of these perspectives.

 

Using a learning-centered approach that emphasizes making decisions that support student learning, the authors address issues critical to the teaching and learning process: student differences, learning, student motivation, teaching, classroom management, assessing student learning, and assessing and changing school climate and culture.
