Product description

Teachers can be promoted to supervisory positions for a variety of reasons, such as excellent teaching skills, “people skills,” or seniority. Seldom are teachers made supervisors because they have had specific professional preparation for the role. Using case studies of actual teaching situations, the book explores such issues as teacher evaluation, autonomy, authority and awareness and attitude. It contains a wealth of practical detail on gathering data and providing feedback in post-observation conferences with teachers. A variety of cases, together with a comprehensive review of the literature, offers valuable insights into the dynamic, interactive process of language teacher supervision. This book is a rich resource for teachers preparing to hold supervisory positions and for practicing language teacher supervisors alike.
