Waltzing through Evaluation
Hassenpflug, Ann
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v4 n1 Jan-Mar 2009
New assistant high school principal, Gwen, and veteran English teacher, Anita, disagree on Gwen's approach to instructional leadership. Gwen's focus as a supervisor is on raising student achievement test scores. She prefers to make brief visits to classrooms, and she knows exactly what she wants to see happening during those visits. Anita views teaching and learning as an interactive process that requires more complex observation and evaluation methodologies. However, new business education teacher, Lisa, is satisfied with Gwen's approach. Consequently the two teachers have quite different post-observation conferences with Gwen about their teaching. Principal Jim provides limited support for his new assistant principal, Gwen. This publication aligns with the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISSLC) Standard 1: "An education leader promotes the success of every student by facilitating the development, articulation, implementation and stewardship of a vision of learning that is shared and supported by all stakeholders."
