These sessions will explore why the conventional model isn’t working and how supervisors can get into classrooms, be perceptive observers, and coach teachers on continuous improvement. This two-part session is full of practical tools, application sessions, and group discussion.
Nuts and Bolts of Mini-Observations: For mini-observations to be effective at improving teaching and learning, ten elements need to be in place.
The Double Role Play: During this section, attendees will watch a brief classroom video of a realistic classroom segment and people observe and take notes. Pairs will take turns role-playing the feedback conversations with the teacher. The teacher will then provide feedback to the partner in the principle or coach role. Attendees will work together to discuss compliments and areas for improvement, and debate which areas of need are most important. To close the activity, attendees will write an email to the teacher summarizing the observation and feedback conversation.
Suggested Audience: Coaches/Deans, Administrators and School Leaders
