The beginning teacher : a practical guide to problem solving by Robert J Krajewski( Book )

6 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book for beginning teachers is developed around six key problem areas: transition from student to teacher; professionalism; relationships (with students, parents, other teachers, principals, supervisors, school staff, and visiting consultants); lesson plans; discipline; and evaluation. A theoretical base is first established for each area and then followed by appropriate case studies. The case studies are followed by questions for thought and discussion as well as by suggested projects. In this way, teachers may work through problems and arrive at their own solutions. (Authors/JD)

The principal's guide to instructional improvement : theory to practice by Robert J Krajewski( )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with an abridged history of administrative and clinical supervision, "The Principal's Guide to Instructional Improvement" offers principals both background information, as well as comprehensive models and examples, to analyze and improve teacher instruction. Based on the principle of teacher growth, rather than teacher evaluation, this book explains both content and process, allowing for the establishment of principal-teacher rapport, the very foundation of successful school supervision. The book offers six supervision models that translate the theory to applied practice. All models can be used separately or together, and they are thoroughly explained with sufficient examples for easy implementation. Beneficial for both novice and veteran principals, this guide will systematically improve the hierarchy within schools, allowing for vast improvement within the classroom

Teacher Self-Improvement. a Change Model for Beginning Teachers by Robert J Krajewski( Book )

2 editions published between 1983 and 1985 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A model for improving instructional skills was developed to offer guidance for administrators or supervisors responsible for overseeing the performance of first year teachers. Developed from research findings on the nature of teaching and learning and the characteristics of an effective teacher, an integral component of the instructional improvement model is systematic observation of teacher performance. The first step in the process is a pre-conference between the supervisor and beginning teacher in which agreement is reached on the observation focus and intent. Teacher input is desirable in selecting the focus of the observation and agreement on observation tools and procedure. The program emphasizes that the supervisor should approach the observation with an open mind, observe objectively, and focus on the agreed-upon targets. Systematic observation processes include personal, video or audio tapes, as well as rating by students, peers, and self assessment by the beginning teacher. A post-observation conference presents an opportunity for discussion between the supervisor and the teacher and the formation of a mutually agreed-upon course of action for improvement. A list of touchstones for beginning teachers is included. (Jd)

Fiscal Condition of the 50 States Budget Realities by Jerry C McGee( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1977, school budgetary problems have been created by a decline in state and federal tax revenues combined with a greater demand for services and declining student enrollment. The serious erosion in the fiscal health of the 50 states over the last few years means that competition for tax dollars will increase, leaving government with the choice to pass new taxes, institute cuts in state costs/services, or increase users' fees for such things as parks and roads. If federal funds continue to drop, school programs will be modified or discontinued, staff positions reduced, and materials and supplies cut. Monitoring such problems as advancing teacher age and increasing per pupil expenditures, local school boards should resist new state standards not fully funded and identify areas for cutting back services. Local funding is likely to experience a property tax backlash in the immediate and near future. Tactics for responding to the current period of budget cuts and program and fiscal accountability include (1) instituting effective community public relations, (2) hiring younger teachers to cut costs, (3) moving to school based management, and (4) undertaking critical internal evaluation of existing programs.

Conceptual Foundations of Instructional Supervision A Rationale for the Human Concern by Robert J Krajewski( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary authors' definitions of supervision suggest that in the American public school supervision evolved from four major conceptual foundations: (1) human concern, (2) leadership, (3) instructional improvement, and (4) administration. The categorization of definitions and explanations from 21 leading supervision authorities of the past 50 years is presented in a table. An analysis of these definitions reveals that, of the 21 authors, 19 perceive instructional improvement to be the cornerstone of supervision; 17 also express the necessity of leadership in supervision; and 13 state the relationship between supervision and administration. However, only 12 of the 21 authors stressed the human concern "foundation" of supervision. This lack of emphasis on human concern can be directly related to the scientific and rational approach to supervision. Philosophically, however, most of the authors cited would agree that supervision must be concerned with the human element in both students and teachers. (MLF)
Role Implications of a Rank Ordering Process by Elementary Principals by Robert J Krajewski( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To obtain a realistic understanding of the supervisory role perception of the elementary principal, a 10-item questionnaire was sent to 400 elementary principals and teachers throughout Texas. They rank ordered both real and ideal role dimensions and agreed that the role is not what it should be. Principals now serve as disciplinarians but do not wish to do so. Both teachers and principals would like to see the principal as a staff selector/orientor. Neither group was too anxious to see the principal as an evaluator, although teachers felt that principals carry out this role more than principals believe they do. In conclusion, both principals (very strongly) and teachers want the principal's role as instructional and curriculum supervisor to be more pronounced than it presently is. (Author)

How to Help Beginning Teachers by Robert J Krajewski( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A principal can provide support for beginning teachers by gaining specific knowledge of each teacher's curriculum, by developing rapport, and by encouraging teachers in seven key areas. Rapport is built with friendly, solicitous behavior and a lot of listening; it can be destroyed by too much criticism, insensitivity, and aloofness. A principal must model rapport-building behaviors, which include both verbal and nonverbal emotional cues. The seven touchstones for beginning teachers include knowing and accepting self, building self-confidence, developing positive attitudes, planning, involving students, identifying students' levels, and knowing colleagues. Support is the critical factor that a principal must supply for a successful school year. (Fwr)
Organization and Operation of Teacher Education Programs Implications for Change in Professional Education Preparation by Fred Donald Carver( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A survey conducted in 1983-84 of American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education member institutions sought information regarding teacher education policy and organizational/structural practices. Questionnaires contained four questions about institutional characteristics, and five questions about general organization for teacher education programs, one of which concerned the locus of responsibility for offering selected courses, advising students, and supervising student teachers in six program areas. Statistics were tabulated and responses analyzed for each of the questions. Findings indicated: (1) teacher preparation is decentralized and complex across the nation; fluctuating supply and demand, geographic mobility among students and graduates, and an evolving view of appropriate components contribute to significant commonalities in teacher education programs; (2) teacher preparation involves faculty from throughout the college/university, thus teacher preparation is an institutional function; (3) only 46 percent of institutions have separate programs of general education for teacher preparation; (4) policy responsibility lies with education professors in 58 percent of the institutions; and (5) teacher preparation program control is a shared responsibility in varying, complex ways and to varying degrees in higher education institutions. Recommendations for improvements for teacher preparation programs are suggested in a discussion of the implications of the findings. (JD)
