Secrets to supervising for instructional improvement!
 

With continual emphasis on student outcomes and state and national standards, supervision of instruction is an indispensable function that inspires good teaching and promotes student learning. More than ever, effective supervision is vital to instructional improvement and this new edition of Supervision That Improves Teaching and Learning pinpoints the strategies and techniques that matter most.

Pairing tools for the same focus—one to observe the teacher and a second for the students

New case studies on alternative approaches to supervision such as learning walks, lesson study, and book groups

A new chapter on creating transformational change

More on technology topics such as blogs, wikis, online and hybrid courses

Scenarios highlighting English Language Learners and exceptional students
