Editorial Reviews

Chester Kaminski
"The authors go beyond the general concept of evaluating to emphasize that supervision must promote lifelong learning skills for our teachers. This book and time-saving CD-ROM truly define the aim of instructional supervision to promote teacher growth and development."
Nino Falcone
"This practical guidebook thoroughly covers the process of evaluation and gives me a time-saving process for formal and qualitative evaluations. As an evaluator—it is a must!"
Ellen Ruane
"Evaluating teachers is one of the most difficult duties in any school district. The authors cover teacher evaluations by incorporating it into an in-depth, wide-ranging technological approach. Evaluation systems must include real opportunities for teachers to improve their performance, but must weed out those who ultimately can’t meet the required standards. This book helps me identify the professional standards and expectations needed to effectively improve teachers’ accountability and productivity."
Jeanette Braswell
"The book’s user-friendly content aids in improving the new or underperforming teacher’s instructional skills by offering a myriad of editable statements and concepts that identify professional strengths and weaknesses. I highly recommend this guide to all administrative and supervisory personnel."
Bob Buck
"This book is a great resource for teacher evaluations, helping the busy evaluator chronicle the influences made by teachers on the academic, social, and emotional growth of the students placed in their rooms."
