Effective Supervision: Applying the Art and Science of Teaching
June 30, 2012 | St. Louis, Mo.
"The purpose of supervision should be the enhancement of teachers' pedagogical skills with the ultimate goal of enhancing student achievement." This foundational principle of supervision opens Effective Supervision: Applying the Art and Science of Teaching (Marzano, Frontier, & Livingston, 2011, in press), and undergirds this ASCD-sponsored professional development program. In this session, you will investigate and experience elements across the full range of teaching’s expanding knowledge base with priority given to four interrelated domains: Classroom Strategies and Behaviors, Planning and Preparing, Reflecting on Teaching, and Collegiality and Professionalism.
The goal of this session is the improvement of your responses to one of the greatest challenges to supporting teacher growth and development: the provision of high-quality feedback in a culture of professional collaboration. This session is designed for teachers, teacher leaders, teaching teams and departments, coaches, and school- and district-level supervisors of teaching; in other words, anyone and everyone charged with the responsibility of enhancing student learning.
- You will develop a comprehensive understanding of the design questions of the Art and Science of Teaching.
- You will gain facility with Marzano Research Laboratory’s "Observational Protocol" so that you can use this tool to provide focused feedback on teaching.
- You will begin designing improvements in your school and district’s feedback on and supervision of teaching.
