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.
An experienced teacher, administrator, and college professor, Robert Krajewski is the author of six books and approximately 135 articles or book chapters.  He has also guest edited fifteen pieces of work. Krajewski has more than four decades of experience in education.

Editorial Reviews

Having successfully opened two large elementary schools, I find Krajewski's book to be extremely practical, but in my life, a bit late. There are few works, if any, that so effectively bring together the key historical and conceptual perspectives of education and practical applications in such a  timely and useful format. The book supports the premise that supervision and improvement of instruction are together a journey, not isolated events along the way. Krajewski's work interrelates a variety of tools into a comprehensive system focused on the improvement of instruction. This valuable tool provides for administrators a solid foundation for working with teachers.
