9780761929673: The Three-Minute Classroom Walk-Through: Changing School Supervisory Practice One Teacher at a Time

Change the entire school culture with this collaborative method of supervision!

For years, the classic supervision model has frustrated both principals and teachers by fostering superior-subordinate relationships, focusing on teacher conformity rather than growth, or producing checklist data that are irrelevant to the curriculum. The Three-Minute Classroom Walk-Through offers a practical, time-saving alternative that impacts student achievement by cultivating self-reliant teachers who are continuously improving their practice.

This method answers principals′ key questions:

  • Is the work of my teachers aligned with district curriculum?
  • Are my teachers using research-based "best practices"?
  • Are they choosing the instructional strategies that will promote student achievement?

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book puts into perspective and practices the vision of what supervision should be. It is a model of principal-teacher interaction and redefines the professional relationships of classroom supervisory practice. The Downey approach attempts to change how principals approach supervision by replacing it with a collegial, egalitarian model of professional practice. This approach is a model of changed supervisory practice that attempts to characterize an entire school to develop a network of relationships. The Downey approach is about changing schools one teacher at a time in order to attain a culture of high work-performance for the entire school. Bookseller Inventory # AAX9780761929673
