Improving Administrative Performance through Teacher Evaluation.
Sanacore, Joseph
To help principals improve as reading leaders, teachers should first provide them with feedback. Although informal comments are important to administrators, teachers' formal feedback in a survey or questionnaire helps to objectify the evaluation process and to provide principals with a more complete picture. Specifically, teachers can call to administrators' attention strengths and weaknesses that affect their reading leadership, and this type of feedback increases the chances of enhancing their performance and also improving their relationship with teachers. A review of the professional literature suggests that specific efforts to have teachers evaluate reading leaders are almost nonexistent. Teachers and principals who are interested in implementing such an evaluation might: (1) form a language arts advisory council; (2) develop a rationale for evaluating reading leaders; (3) review the professional literature; (4) use related literature to establish goals; (5) develop a survey to determine the degree to which the reading leadership goals are attained; (6) distribute the survey to the entire faculty; and (7) tabulate results in a way that assures confidentiality. (A survey for teacher evaluation of reading leaders is attached.) (RS)
