Book Description

First Published in 1999. Enhancing the quality of teaching and learning in schools for the benefit of the teacher and pupil is not a matter of quick 'tips for teachers'. It requires a fundamental review by every teacher of their own performance and its effect on learners. A significant way of achieving this is by reflection on performance which can best be supplied by systematic classroom observation and feedback from professional colleagues. This book describes how to set up and engage in classroom observation, using well­established professional sampling frames. It also illustrates how to use focused appraisal sessions and to deliver the feedback interview. Underpinning the author's practical guidance is a tried and tested theory of improving teaching and learning for school development. The approach is practical, positive and supportive and is designed for senior staff, SENCOs, teachers in primary and secondary schools and those taking INSET and continuing professional development courses.
