You became a school leader after succeeding in your particular content area and/or grade level. Now you're responsible for the entire school. You are accountable for everything that goes on, including results from those who teach outside your areas of original expertise. Supervision Across the Content Areas provides tools and strategies to help you effectively supervise all of your teachers, including those in contents areas or grade levels in which you may not have had personal classroom experience. While focusing on four key content areas Mathematics, Science, English/Language Arts, and Social Studies, this book also provides supervision tools for other content areas (foreign languages, fine arts, physical education, etc.). Also included are tools and strategies to help you - supervise teachers who use instructional strategies such as differentiated instruction, Socratic Seminars, cooperative learning, and inquiry. - apply local and national standards to frame your instructional program. - ensure accountability of teachers who use multiple intelligences, brain-based learning, and other innovations. - understand the learning needs of students across grades PreK-12.
