Three Essential Frameworks for Superintendents and Principal Supervisors

A special offer for attendees of AASA's 2018 National Conference on Education

Our deep belief in equity inspired the creation of these tools to support principal practice and the improvement of teaching and student learning. 

Principal Support Framework

The Principal Support Framework represents the best thinking of educators from across the country about the support needed to advance principal leadership focused on improving teaching and learning at scale. The framework helps school system leaders determine how well they support principals as instructional leaders.


4 Dimensions of Instructional Leadership™

The 4 Dimensions of Instructional Leadership describes the essence of effective instructional leadership and guides school leaders in improving teaching and learning for all students. The framework is not the sum total of the work of school leaders. Rather, it is a description of the most salient aspects of instructional leadership.


5 Dimensions of Teaching and Learning™

Developed from multiyear research efforts at the University of Washington, the 5 Dimensions of Teaching and Learning instructional framework is a comprehensive reflection of the core elements of effective teaching. The tool can be used as the “lens” for classroom observations, as a guide for teachers, and as a reference during lesson planning and staff meetings about instructional practices.
