Unfortunately, this item is not available in your country.
This first-of-its-kind resource offers principals and other instructional leaders up to date knowledge and theories of teaching and learning, plus practical curriculum applications of those perspectives. Reaching beyond the traditional concept of supervision in which principals were responsible for rating teachers’ effectiveness, Instructional Leadership, 4/e asserts that teachers and principals must work as colleagues to improve teaching and learning in schools. 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.
