The Supervisor s Guidebook

The Supervisor s Guidebook

This guidebook will show how supervisors can ensure support staff to deliver quality services for people with disabilities whose quality of life is heavily dependent on how well those services are provided. Supervisors must ensure staff receive necessary training in their job duties, are actively supported to stay motivated to work proficiently and, at times, effectively assisted to improve their work performance. Supervisors have to overcome many challenges to fulfill these critical duties, often involving frequent changes in their staff work force and varying or limited resources. Complicating the job of staff supervisors is a lack of formal training necessary to perform their supervisory duties effectively. When supervisors do receive training in how to supervise staff work performance, the training is not always very useful. The training is frequently too general to equip supervisors with knowledge and skills to affect staff work performance on a routine basis. The training also is commonly based on unproven means of promoting quality staff performance, stemming from current fads or ideology that has little if any hard evidence to support the training content. Over the last five decades, a technology for supervising staff work performance in the human services has been evolving, derived from applied research conducted in many human service agencies. However, most supervisors have not had opportunities to become aware of these evidence-based means of fulfilling their supervisory duties. The purpose of The Supervisor’s Guidebook is to describe the existing evidence-based approach to supervision. Description of the approach is supplemented with practical suggestions based on the authors’ combined experience encompassing over 100 years of supervising staff performance in the human services. The intent is to provide supervisors with detailed information about tried and tested means of promoting diligent and proficient staff performance and to do so in a way that maximizes staff enjoyment with their work.

EBOOK  Developing Independent Learning in Science  Practical ideas and activities for 7 12 year olds

This practical guide to promoting and developing independent learning is presented in a mixed format using both diagrammatic and textual stimulus. It offers tips and suggestions to achieve effective teaching and learning, and raises standards by enabling the pupil to become independent and responsible for their own learning; autonomous in their thinking and creative and critical in their understanding. Liz Lakin describes a progression away from dependency on the classroom teacher, whose role changes readily from teacher to facilitator. Drawing on practice-based research, she introduces the skills and processes associated with independent learning through established strategies such as ‘Assessment for Learning’, the use of ‘Active learning’ techniques, problem solving activities and peer-assessment. Each chapter presents tried and tested ideas, strategies and activities for the development of higher-order skills such as application, synthesis, evaluation and reflection, to use with pupils across the dependency spectrum. Several relate to the higher levels of attainment and are therefore applicable at Key Stage 3. The effectiveness of teacher/pupil feedback and the role of homework form a significant focus for the latter part of the book. "A truly-thought provoking, interactive book with a difference that takes teachers on a learning journey. It encourages us to reflect on how we learn, how our pupils learn and what the collective implications for effective teaching and helping pupils to construct their learning are.Reading and actively engaging with this book is indeed a learning journey, invaluable to practitioners. The text contains many invaluable references and deals with topics such as the value of homework, how people learn and how people respond to techniques addressee to hem in learning situations. An essential reading for practicing teachers and particularly students in training and their tutors." Dr Sue Dale Tunnicliffe, Senior lecturer in Science Education, Institute of Education, University of London, UK "There has never been a time when independent learning is more important in school science. In Developing Independent Learning in Science, Liz Lakin challenges the reader to examine how they teach science and why pupils respond as they do. The result is a book that should be of great value to those who teach science to 7-12 year-olds and to science educators in general. A particular strength is the way the author interweaves rigorous thinking about learning with activities for the reader to help them engage with the text. In addition, there is a mass of useful thinking in here and plenty of classroom suggestions. The book is worth reading simply for the honesty of the 'How not to climb Helvellyn' case study." Michael J Reiss, Professor of Science Education, Institute of Education, University of London, UK "In this book Liz Lakin involves the readers in the kind of independent learning that she in describing and advocating. It should enable practising teachers to stand back from their work to consider why we want children to learn in a certain way as well as providing useful ideas about how to do it. It is written in a personal and engaging style and is a unique addition to books on science teaching." Wynne Harlen, OBE, PhD. Visiting Professor of Education, University of Bristol, UK
