In this second edition of Improving Instruction Through Supervision, Evaluation, and Professional Development we’ve maintained the conceptual framework while updating sections to provide the most recent research on instructional strategies that have the most promise of helping all students learn. Modifications of the law resulting from the reauthorization of the 50-year-old Elementary and Secondary Education Act—Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) (2015)—and their implication for practice are embedded throughout this new edition. Updated data collection tools for classroom observations are also provided. We included a link to a website that contains all the observation tools in electronic format so that observers can have the opportunity to collect data on a tablet or laptop, save the observation data as a PDF file and e-mail those data to the teacher observed. This new edition recognizes the reality that all principals are responsible for supervision, evaluation, and professional development of their teachers—tasks that are neither simple nor without conflict. The primary audience of this text is aspiring and practicing principals. We hope to help them understand both the theory and practice of supervision, evaluation, and professional development. However, observing instruction, collecting data for reflection, and having conversations about teaching, are not the sole provinces of principals. Master teachers, teacher leaders, and teacher colleagues can also benefit from the supervisory sections of the book, especially the chapters on high-quality instruction, improving instruction, and the classroom data collecting tools. The book provides numerous tools specifically designed to collect a variety of data in classrooms to improve instruction. Embedded in each chapter are exercises to apply Theory into Practice by responding to a set of questions posed by the key issues of the chapter. After the explication and illustration of the key concepts and principles of the chapter, actual Instructional Leadership Challenges as described by a successful practicing principal for reflection and analysis.

"All chapters are written brilliantly...the summaries are brief, well-written and concise...the use of cases and vignettes will be very beneficial to students and professors who are interested in studying leadership at a systems level within public educational organizations." Anthony H. Normore, Florida International University This book immerses prospective superintendents and other executive administrators in the realities of practice and the specific leadership skills that create effective schools. Research based coverage of the foundations, issues, principles and responsibilities of executive leaders in educational administration and management are presented within the three dimensions of: The Nature of Executive Leadership, Forces That Influence and Shape Executive Leadership, and the Responsibilities of Executive Leaders. This text encourages leaders to think beyond management and consider how to lead and affect school culture, student achievement, and organizational productivity. Case studies and critical incidents as well as ample pedagogical elements encourage readers to take an active, decision-making role. Concepts throughout the text correlate closely to ISLLC standards. Features: This text carefully balances theory and practice so that these concepts are meaningful throughout. Critical leadership topics such as organizational culture, working with governing boards and employee groups, conflict, and politics are emphasized in chapters 3-12. Rather than a strict focus on educational administration, this work centers on executive leadership. Leadership for the attainment of educational goals is given priority and this focus correlates closely to ISLLC standards. Field-tested elements such as case studies, in-basket exercises and other simulations in each chapter tie chapter concepts to actual problems and responsibilities in the field. Learning objectives, chapter vocabulary, chapter summaries, and discussion questions that accompany each chapter provide opportunities for student reflection.

Prepare and inspire teachers to ADAPT to the needs of all their students! Using the research-validated A-D-A-P-T model as an instructional guide, problem-solving approach and mnemonic, this new book clearly promotes the thoughtful practices and adaptations which have been proven as the most effective means to teach hard-to-reach students. It inspires classroom teachers to want to meet the challenges of students with disabilities and other learning challenges in their classroom and then gives them the tools to do it confidently.

School social workers engage in different forms of consultation on a daily basis, yet they rarely think about or describe this work as 'consultation.' Further, school social work practice research finds that consultation is among the most frequently performed practice tasks, yet consultation is rarely defined in school social work literature or research. This book adapts the consultation theory and practice framework put forward by June Gallessich (1982) that defines consultation in specific terms and proposes that there are six models of consultation. These models are organizational consultation, program consultation, education and training consultation, mental health consultation, behavioral consultation, and clinical case consultation. The models are differentiated according to their problem focus, outcome goal, intervention methods, change processes, power base, and value system. School social work consultation services are an important pathway to help school systems fulfill their educational mission and to help school personnel become more effective in their professional work. It is consistent with current trends in educational policy that call upon school social workers to take a multisystem approach to addressing school needs on a school-wide, class-wide, or individual level. The overarching goal of the book is to provide school social workers with the knowledge, skill, and confidence to implement consultation services. Consultation is a powerful method to 'realize the promise of the whole-school approach' and to help homes, schools, and communities foster school success and student well-being.
