Glossary: 100+1 Terms To Know and Apply in Supervising Instruction. Occasional Paper 87-1.
Dzyacky, John W., Ed.
Instructional supervision terminology continues to grow at an accelerating rate. This glossary is designed to help beleaguered instructional leaders identify research-based terms that facilitate a common language between teacher and supervisor and thereby enhance communication. The 100 terms are but a beginning collection of the most current definitions associated with effective teaching and effective schools. The glossary, a hands-on guide for teachers and supervisors, helps clarify misused or confusing terms and provides additional bibliographic references for further indepth review. Samples of terms defined are "academic learning time,""active listening,""bird-walking,""coaching,""contingent reinforcement,""engaged time," and "management by walking around." An index is provided.
