Table of Contents
This study guide is designed to enhance your understanding of Supervision for Learning, an ASCD book published in May 2006. Written by James M. Aseltine, Judith O. Faryniarz, and Anthony J. Rigazio-DiGilio, the book describes a model of supervision and evaluation that increases teachers' and administrators' capacity to use student performance data strategically to improve student learning, and is intrinsically linked to professional development and school improvement efforts.
The questions here offer an opportunity to connect the book's content to your own experiences. Most of the questions are ones you can think about on your own, but they might also serve as the basis for discussion with colleagues in study groups or during other professional development activities. You can use the study guide after you have read the entire book or as you finish each chapter. The questions provided are not meant to cover all aspects of the book; rather, they address selected ideas that might warrant further reflection. You will likely think of additional areas for reflection or discussion as you connect the Performance-Based Supervision and Evaluation (PBSE) model to challenges and issues facing your own school and district.
