Overview

In a now outmoded concept in supervision, it was the responsibility of the principal to rate the effectiveness of teachers; not so anymore. This first-of-its-kind guide reaches beyond traditional supervision books and asserts that teachers and principals must work as colleagues to improve teaching and learning in schools. It’s a fresh approach to supervision that 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.

· Students get valuable experience applying theory and research through a myriad of practical, concrete aids such as Leadership Challenges, Theory Into Action Guidelines, Your Professional Portfolio exercises, Preview of Key Terms, ISLLC Standards, instruments for assessing school climate, American Psychological Association Learner-Centered Principles, guidelines for helping beginning teachers and observing in classrooms, ideas for conducting a job interview, Web resources for teaching content, and more.

· NEW! The new Fourth Edition brings educators up to date on the latest thinking and research in the critical areas of:

· the No Child Left Behind Act (Chapter 1)

· diversity, poverty, and immigration (new sections in Chapter 2)

· metacognition and learning strategies (Chapter 4)

· NEW! More than 200 new studies are added and synthesized throughout this new edition.

· NEW! Educators see clearly how to:

· use new technology to enhance and improve instruction (Chapter 1)

· Implement tracking, flexible scheduling, multiple intelligence, and gifted teaching (Chapter 3)

avoid boring students in the classroom (Chapter 5)
