Here you’ll find clear, practical guidelines designed to complement and enhance your school’s existing observation and evaluation models. Jane E. Pollock and Sharon M. Ford explain how to * Focus classroom observations and feedback on the critical classroom decisions that promote meaningful, lasting learning. * Guide teachers toward the most effective curriculum, teaching, assessment, and feedback strategies for each stage of the lesson. * Support teachers’ efforts to align the plan book and the grade book for better instructional decisions and higher student achievement. Along with these research-based recommendations, the book also features the voices of working administrators who share the difference this approach has made for them, their teachers, and their students. You too may find it’s the tool you’ve been looking for to revitalize yourself as instructional leader, shift your focus from inspecting teaching to improving learning, and build a more positive and more successful school.

These five skills are addressed at the end of every chapter; supported by new content on Bloom's Taxonomy and professionalism; and emphasized in three new chapters on Character, Creative and Critical Thinking, and Collaborating. A renewed emphasis on the Master Student qualities is incorporated throughout the text, further supporting the Five C's. Through tools like the Discovery Wheel, Kolb Learning Style Inventory (LSI), Discovery and Intention journal entries, and hands-on activities, students gain a deeper understanding of themselves and learn to continually apply new skills as lifelong learners.
