Types of Supervision:

Differentiated Supervision:  

Differentiated Supervision provides a framework for professional growth designed to improve teacher effectiveness, instructional practices, and student achievement by recognizing that teachers have different growth needs and learning styles.


Formal Observation:

The formal observation mode must be based on the Danielson's Framework for Teaching. This mode requires a pre-conference, an observation, self reflection, and a post conference to determine areas for growth (formative assessment) and also to serve as data for the summative assessment.
