DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The first edition of this book, titled A DESIGN FOR INSTRUCTIONAL SUPERVISION, provided a structural framework for an effective program of instructional supervision. The basic cognitive thrust of this second edition, SUPERVISION: A Guide to Instructional Leadership, remains the same as the first. What has changed is the attention to the detail surrounding the design components. References have been updated and streamlined, activities have been modified, and examples of structure have been created using the current national policy situation as a base. Philosophical and historical definitions of supervision are maintained and expanded in this edition. It will help professionals with responsibilities for instructional leadership design a supervisory program that fits a local situation by taking advantage of the foundation provided herein. Attention is given to the selection of and the interrelationships between those assumptions, principles, objectives, criteria, and procedures so that planners of supervisory programs will gain the knowledge and tools necessary to create that structure from this book. It also provides a means for schools to have a well-conceived, carefully designed, properly implemented, and continuously evaluated plan for the supervision of instruction in order to reply competently to state and federally mandated assessments for students. In addition, personal perspectives of the authors are presented in each part of the text. The book will serve as a guide and provide direction to instructional supervisors, directors of services, principals, administrators at all levels, teachers, grade level or department chairs, and others interested in the management of instruction in the school setting.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Supervising Principals for Instructional Leadership specifies the conditions that district leaders can create to help principal supervisors take a teaching and learning approach to their work. Based on their extensive research in district central offices, Meredith I. Honig and Lydia R. Rainey show how supervisors can most effectively support principals in becoming instructional leaders and developing the capacity to lead their own learning. "Supervising Principals for Instructional Leadership is a brilliant, inspiring, clear book that nails what it means to supervise school leaders for growth and helps the reader reimagine the role of the central office. Read this book, and use it immediately!" --Michael Fullan, professor emeritus, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto "What does it look and sound like to support principals to lead learning? Honig and Rainey share their research-and-practice-tested wisdom, which combines the imagination to break free of conventional supervision with clear examples of what to do and what not to do, and a bundle of tools to make it happen." --Elizabeth A. City, senior lecturer on education, Harvard Graduate School of Education "For too long the work of principal supervision has been a black box; Honig and Rainey open up that box and provide practical steps for system leaders to take to support principals so that instruction improves for every child in every school. Their systemic approach is a must-read for any public education leader." --Joshua P. Starr, chief executive officer, PDK International "This finely crafted book about a critical school improvement problem is guided by a strong theory, builds on an impressively rich body of evidence, and includes many practical illustrations of the guiding theory in action. District leaders aiming to improve instruction in their schools will find much of value to their efforts in this text." --Kenneth Leithwood, emeritus professor, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto Meredith I. Honig is a professor of Education Policy, Organizations, and Leadership at the University of Washington, Seattle. Lydia R.

Release: 1981-01-01
Editor: Assn for Supervision & Curriculum

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Instructional supervision is intertwined with the debate on how humans learn and on what knowledge is of greatest import. Those who believe that knowledge is acquired as an individual chooses to follow his or her own inclinations tend to favor nondirective supervision. Those who believe that learning is the result of reciprocity and experimentation advocate collaborative supervision. Those who believe that learning is acquired through compliance with a set of standards advocate directive supervision. Because all methods can be successful when applied in the proper circumstances, it is important for a supervisor to be aware of his or her own beliefs on supervision. To help create such an awareness, the author includes a self-assessment questionnaire for supervisors to use in determining their beliefs. The questionnaire is followed by a discussion on which of ten behaviors on the supervisory behavior continuum (listening, clarifying, encouraging, presenting, problem-solving, negotiating, demonstrating, directing, standardizing, and reinforcing) are associated with the orientation. A paradigm of four teacher categories (dropouts, unfocused workers, analytical observers, and professionals) based on teacher commitment and level of abstract thinking is developed to help supervisors determine which supervisory orientation is appropriate for a specific teacher's developmental stage.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

In this second edition of Improving Instruction Through Supervision, Evaluation, and Professional Development we’ve maintained the conceptual framework while updating sections to provide the most recent research on instructional strategies that have the most promise of helping all students learn. Modifications of the law resulting from the reauthorization of the 50-year-old Elementary and Secondary Education Act—Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) (2015)—and their implication for practice are embedded throughout this new edition. Updated data collection tools for classroom observations are also provided. We included a link to a website that contains all the observation tools in electronic format so that observers can have the opportunity to collect data on a tablet or laptop, save the observation data as a PDF file and e-mail those data to the teacher observed. This new edition recognizes the reality that all principals are responsible for supervision, evaluation, and professional development of their teachers—tasks that are neither simple nor without conflict. The primary audience of this text is aspiring and practicing principals. We hope to help them understand both the theory and practice of supervision, evaluation, and professional development. However, observing instruction, collecting data for reflection, and having conversations about teaching, are not the sole provinces of principals. Master teachers, teacher leaders, and teacher colleagues can also benefit from the supervisory sections of the book, especially the chapters on high-quality instruction, improving instruction, and the classroom data collecting tools. The book provides numerous tools specifically designed to collect a variety of data in classrooms to improve instruction. Embedded in each chapter are exercises to apply Theory into Practice by responding to a set of questions posed by the key issues of the chapter. After the explication and illustration of the key concepts and principles of the chapter, actual Instructional Leadership Challenges as described by a successful practicing principal for reflection and analysis.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

In this important book, education expert Kim Marshall shows how to break away from the typical and often ineffective evaluation approaches in which principals use infrequent classroom visits or rely on standardized test scores to assess a teacher's performance. Marshall proposes a broader framework for supervision and evaluation that enlists teachers in improving the performance of all students. Emphasizing trust-building and teamwork, Marshall's innovative, four-part framework shifts the focus from periodically evaluating teaching to continuously analyzing learning. This book offers school principals a guide for implementing Marshall's framework and shows how to make frequent, informal classroom visits followed by candid feedback to each teacher; work with teacher teams to plan thoughtful curriculum units rather than focusing on individual lessons; get teachers as teams involved in low-stakes analysis of interim assessment results to fine-tune their teaching and help struggling students; and use compact rubrics for summative teacher evaluation. This vital resource also includes extensive tools and advice for managing time as well as ideas for using supervision and evaluation practices to foster teacher professional development.

Official school leaders and classroom teachers striving to be the best will learn how to put the school's goals and priorities into practice by * Selecting the right structure for differentiating teacher professional learning to improve outcomes for students; * Implementing the technical and procedural skills needed to support teacher learning while observing, assessing, and evaluating instruction; * Identifying appropriate relational skills for communicating and working with teachers; * Applying the best interpersonal approach to stretch each teacher based on their own developmental level; * Making the most of teachable moments with immediate response skills; and * Understanding how to support teachers' social-emotional wellness as an essential component of improving practice.

Editor: ASCD

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Traditional methods of supervision and evaluation focus on teachers' inputs: their lesson plans, instruction, and classroom management practices. But what matters most is the outcome they achieve: learning. This book introduces Performance-Based Supervision and Evaluation (PBSE), a data-driven and teacher-directed approach proven to build educators' analytical and instructional capacity to address the learning needs of their students. It's a move away from disconnected annual goals and outside-in improvement initiatives, and toward the full integration of teacher evaluation, strategic professional development, and school improvement planning. Supervision for Learning is an important resource for school leaders looking to * Honor the judgment of teachers while targeting student performance in areas of essential knowledge and skills articulated in standards; * Empower all teachers to use performance data as the basis for instructional decisions and monitor the effectiveness of these decisions through action research; * Develop meaningful collaborative relationships with and among teachers; and * Acquire authentic evidence of teacher and student growth. Authors James M. Aseltine, Judith O. Faryniarz, and Anthony J. Rigazio-DiGilio explain the best-practice foundations of their approach and provide guidelines for its implementation. Sample artifacts and illustrative vignettes bring the PBSE process to life, clarifying the supervisor's role, the teachers' responsibilities, and the students' gains. You'll also find a planning and monitoring tool that maps milestones within the development and evaluation cycle, along with strategies for reconciling this approach with district reporting requirements and budget realities.
