Written by the expert team of James M. Aseltine, Judith O. Faryniarz, and Anthony J. Rigazio-DiGilio, Supervision for Learning: A Performance-Based Approach to Teacher Development and School Improvement is a resource especially for school leaders striving to improve upon traditional methods of teacher supervision and evaluation. Rather than focus upon the usual recourse of limiting examination to teacher lesson plans, instruction, and classroom management practices, Supervision for Learning presents methods for Performance-Based Supervision and Evaluation (PBSE), a datadriven, teacher-directed approach to uncovering just how effective teachers address the learning needs of their students. Chapters walk the reader through applying the PBSE model step-by-step, while honoring the judgment of teachers, empowering teachers to use the performance data as a basis for their instructional decisions, developing meaningful collaborative relationships with teachers, and much more. Enthusiastically recommended, especially with the changing and increasing educational demands of the twenty-first century.
