Published by ASCD Publications
Authors: Jane E. Pollock and Sharon M. Ford. This book’s breakthrough approach to supervision, built on the Teaching Schema for Master Learners introduced in the ASCD best-seller Improving Student Learning One Teacher at a Time, is a simple way to help teachers make the right adjustments in curriculum, instruction, assessment, and feedback--the four areas of practice that make the most difference in how learners learn.

Here you’ll find clear, practical guidelines designed to complement and enhance your school’s existing observation and evaluation models. Jane E. Pollock and Sharon M. Ford explain how to

* Focus classroom observations and feedback on the critical classroom decisions that promote meaningful, lasting learning.
* Guide teachers toward the most effective curriculum, teaching, assessment, and feedback strategies for each stage of the lesson.
* Support teachers’ efforts to align the plan book and the grade book for better instructional decisions and higher student achievement.

Along with these research-based recommendations, the book also features the voices of working administrators who share the difference this approach has made for them, their teachers, and their students. You too may find it’s the tool you’ve been looking for to revitalize yourself as instructional leader, shift your focus from inspecting teaching to improving learning, and build a more positive and more successful school.
