The core of success in schools is educator expertise. This book doesn’t mince words about how hard it can be but sheds sunlight onto evidence-based processes that lead to improvement. Differentiated Supervision asks for excellent diagnoses of teachers’ needs, their theories of teaching, and the impact of current methods. Furthermore, it uses multiple coaching and supervision models to assist in the fidelity of implementation and provides processes for educators to work together to evaluate the impact on the learning lives of students.
In reconceptualizing supervision as a supporting process of continuous feedback, Mausbach and Morrison provide valuable insights into how school leaders can improve teaching and learning. This wonderfully written, comprehensive guide provides school leaders with the tools and strategies needed to strengthen collective efficacy and achieve improved results.
We differentiate instruction to meet the varied needs of students; why do we fail to do so for teachers? The authors have developed a model to remedy this, one that makes it possible for school leaders to provide the guidance and support all teachers deserve.
