Traditional methods of supervision and evaluation focus on teachers' inputs: their lesson plans, instruction, and classroom management practices. But what matters most is the outcome they achieve: learning. This book introduces Performance-Based Supervision and Evaluation (PBSE), a data-driven and teacher-directed approach proven to build educators' analytical and instructional capacity to address the learning needs of their students. It's a move away from disconnected annual goals and outside-in improvement initiatives, and toward the full integration of teacher evaluation, strategic professional development, and school improvement planning.
Supervision for Learning is an important resource for school leaders looking to
* Honor the judgment of teachers while targeting student performance in areas of essential knowledge and skills articulated in standards;
* Empower all teachers to use performance data as the basis for instructional decisions and monitor the effectiveness of these decisions through action research;
* Develop meaningful collaborative relationships with and among teachers; and
* Acquire authentic evidence of teacher and student growth.
Authors James M. Aseltine, Judith O. Faryniarz, and Anthony J. Rigazio-DiGilio explain the best-practice foundations of their approach and provide guidelines for its implementation. Sample artifacts and illustrative vignettes bring the PBSE process to life, clarifying the supervisor's role, the teachers' responsibilities, and the students' gains. You'll also find a planning and monitoring tool that maps milestones within the development and evaluation cycle, along with strategies for reconciling this approach with district reporting requirements and budget realities.
