Developing Effective Teacher Performance

Improving and maintaining staff performance is an important and often difficult responsibility for school leaders and senior teachers. Designed to help teachers who manage others, this practical book offers guidance on diagnosing ineffectiveness, supporting ineffective teachers, and using appropriate strategies when support isn't enough.

Helping readers understand the dynamics of under-performance, this resource also demonstrates how to develop a whole-school approach to monitoring, supporting, and restoring teacher performance, and offers self-help and developmental guidance for teachers themselves.
