Leading and Supervising Instruction by John C. Daresh
Book DescriptionIn an era in which standardized test scores and legislation are benchmarks for school success, other characteristics of effective schooling and learning can take a back seat. As John Daresh argues in this timely text, however, that headteachers can achieve these imperatives while simultaneously centralizing student learning. Each chapter opens with a real-world scenario designed to coach headteachers on how to become leaders who reach school goals while placing student needs in the foreground. Daresh also provides "next steps" to help headteachers understand what effective supervision and learning look like in action, while recognizing different and equally effective styles of instruction among a diverse teaching staff.By demonstrating how school leaders can enhance their instructional, supervisory, evaluation, and coaching skills, this text reveals how headteachers can: o Attain student-centred practice while supporting those staff members responsible for achieving a school's goal and vision o Bring out the best in teachers by coaching them to achieve their teaching goals o Rethink personal definitions of teaching, learning, and supervision o Develop an openness and greater understanding of different instructional styles This text serves as an insightful and practical addition to existing supervision and instructional leadership literature by emphasizing the link between leadership and student-centred learning.
