One of the priorities of heads of school is to monitor the teaching learning process in their schools. Monitoring involves actions envisaged by the head to ensure that things aregoing according to the objectives set at different levels and at different points in time andalso to see to it that things are revolving according to plan and in line with the target set.The purpose of monitoring is, as such, to increase efficiency and improve effectiveness of the system in place. Since teachers and heads are input variables in a school, the head, asan instructional leader must support and facilitate any initiative conceived by teachers.In their laudable endeavour to hold regular working sessions to discuss about their problems relating to the teaching and learning of science with their classes, the teachersof the upper classes deserve, at the very outset, the heartfelt congratulations of the headteacher for the conception of such an idea to impart a quality education to the pupils. Thisconstitutes the first encouragement. If several or a few teachers have decided, the headteacher must make full use of his negotiating skills to involve all the teachers of the upper classes and convince them to embark on the project of their fellow colleagues as such a project can help them better teach since there will be sharing of ideas and disseminationof good practice. Another form of encouragement will be to clarify and elucidate anydoubts, misgivings, misconception and apprehension. Teachers must also be assured bythe head teacher that there will be no barriers and they will all enjoy the same rights andthink that it is not the initiator’s projector but rather a school project. Every teacher must be encouraged to come prepared with ideas, criticism (positive), problems and possiblesolutions for sharing. All teachers participating in the working sessions must beencouraged to be open to criticism. Numerous facilities can be put at the disposal of these teachers. The staff room or anyother room available with proper and sufficient amenities would meet their needs. Theassistance of school clerks who will provide them with relevant teaching materials andreference books from the school library and that (assistance) of caretakers who willarrange tables and chairs for working sessions will no doubt motivate the teachers towork and develop their potential. Arrangement for refreshments and cakes from thehawker’s fund can also be made by the head teacher. Moreover, permission for localvisits must be granted to whet teachers’ interest and arrangements for their replacementwhen they are taken up in meetings or when they are busy in field work will further eggthem on to preserve for finding solutions to their science problems.As regards academic leadership provided to those teachers, headteachers must helpteachers to plan and conduct discussions set precise objectives and find means to achievethem. Here the specialised expertise in the teaching of science of the head and in thesharing of his/her experiences will be tremendously beneficial to the project initiators.Again the experience of the head teacher will help in devising and preparing teachingaids and adopting the appropriate methodology that will prompt pupils’ assimilation andunderstanding of topics in science. Research work must be encouraged but too muchintervention must be avoided. After all ownership of decisions and resolutions must beallowed to the initiators.
