Targeted Observation of ELL Instruction as a Tool in the Preparation of School Leaders
Baecher, Laura; Knoll, Marcia; Patti, Janet
International Multilingual Research Journal, v10 n3 p201-216 2016
Preparing school administrators to promote effective instruction of English language learners (ELLs) is an important dimension of today's educational leadership programs, requiring innovative program activities. This study explores school leadership candidates' use of an observation tool targeted to ELL instruction that incorporated guided video analysis and live observation. Collaboration between TESOL and school leadership faculty served to enhance the capacity of the leadership program to prepare candidates in school leadership with the needed knowledge and skills to enact meaningful supervisory practices for teachers of ELL students. Implications for leadership programs to strengthen instruction for ELLs are discussed.
