Leadership for Learning: How To Help Teachers Succeed.
Glickman, Carl D.
This book provides instructional leaders with guidance and insight to help them work successfully with teachers to improve classroom teaching and learning. It goes beyond the basics of supervision to place the work of instructional leadership within the context of whole-school improvement. The book offers scenarios describing interactions with teachers of diverse backgrounds and skill levels and provides information on summative and formative assessment of teachers. The seven chapters are: (1) "Looking at Classroom Teaching and Learning"; (2) "Structures for Classroom Assistance"; (3) "Formats for Focusing Observation"; (4) "Approaches to Working Closely with Teachers"; (5) "Direct Applications to Assisting Teachers"; (6) "Criteria for Assessing Teacher Competence and Growth"; and (7) "Purpose, Strength, and Collegial Force for School Success." Appended are peer coaching forms and frameworks for teaching, which can be adapted or duplicated. The book also includes an extensive list of resources on the topics of looking at student work, professional development and instructional leadership, and educators' ethnic, cultural, and personal diversity. (Contains 43 references.) (SM)
