The principal as curriculum leader : shaping what is taught & tested by Allan A Glatthorn( Book )

20 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and Chinese and held by 967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Principals can best discharge their leadership role if they develop a deep and broad knowledge base with respect to curriculum. This book offers guidelines for principals who seek to work cooperatively with the school community in developing and implementing effective curriculum. Part 1 contains three chapters that review the knowledge base. They explain the four levels of curriculum work (state, district, school, and classroom) and analyze the importance of the principal's role. Part 2 includes two chapters that explain how the principal can influence the state and district curricula as they are being developed. The six chapters in the third part focus on steps in developing the curriculum at the school level, including developing a vision and goals, rethinking the program of studies, committing to a learning-centered schedule, integrating the curriculum, aligning the curriculum, and monitoring the implementation process. Four chapters in part 4 offer suggestions for working with classroom teachers--making yearly planning calendars, developing units of study, enriching the curriculum and remediating learning, and evaluating the curriculum. The final chapter describes practical ways to implement leadership skills. References accompany each chapter. Contains 3 figures and 31 references. (Lmi)

Differentiated supervision by Allan A Glatthorn( Book )

10 editions published between 1984 and 1997 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Several years of research support a differentiated system of supervision in which teachers can choose from among four different supervision styles. With the clinical style, intense observation and feedback is conducted by a trained supervisor. Cooperative professional development consists of small teams of peers working together for their mutual growth. With self-directed development, the individual teacher assumes primary responsibility for his or her own growth. Administrative monitoring is a process by which the administrator conducts brief drop-in visits and conferences. Although research indicates that the differentiated system is feasible and has a positive effect on those who participate, it will not be effective in all schools or with all teachers. An implementation process that has been found to be generally effective is presented, but each school is encouraged to develop its own version of the system, after teachers, supervisors, and administrators have had an opportunity to discuss ideas and their own needs.

Curriculum renewal by Allan A Glatthorn( Book )

8 editions published in 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a manual for educators to use in curriculum planning and development.

Chapter 2 explains the process of reflecting district goals in the curriculum. Chapter 3 explains how to improve the curriculum in a given field of study. Chapter 4 discusses improving a program of studies at a given level through aligning goals, achieving balance and curricular integration, improving skills, achieving open access, and responding to student needs. Chapter 5 discusses improving a set of skills across the curriculum in areas of writing, reading, and critical thinking. Chapter 6 reviews the standard model for developing new courses and then explains a naturalistic model that emphasizes quality of learning. Chapter 7 discusses responding to individual differences and describes three specific approaches: mastery learning, cooperative learning, and computer-assisted instruction. Numerous figures illustrate chapter contents. An appendix contains a bibliography of resources for the subject fields of art, business, English/language arts, foreign language, health, home economics, mathematics, music, reading, science, social studies, and technology.

Teachers as agents of change : a new look at school improvement by Allan A Glatthorn( Book )

7 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of teachers in bringing about educational improvement in the American schools is described in this guidebook. Based on a model of school improvement that incorporates several bodies of educational research, the central thesis is that teacher empowerment begins with teacher knowledge. Following the introduction, chapter 2 describes the essential element of the school improvement model--effective classrooms. The supportive elements, those that directly affect classrooms, are discussed in chapters 3-5: an interactive curriculum process, professional development programs, and student motivation. The facilitative elements--supportive home/community/school relationships, a learning-centered schedule, and a valid and comprehensive assessment system--are examined in chapters 6-8. Chapters 9-11 analyze the contextual elements, which include foundation elements (school culture), collegial leadership, and systematic planning for school improvement. Collaboration is advocated for implementation of the model between administrators and teachers, between school and home, and among teachers in instructional teams. References accompany each chapter.
