Join a small group for seven days of professional learning to practice leadership skills that foster deeper learning: instruction that challenges, engages, and empowers students. Quality instruction in the classroom and strong instructional leadership are the two most impactful variables in improving student achievement. Participating in this professional learning community will help you sharpen your saw in both realms. Whether you are an instructional guide, assistant principal, or principal, your ability to confidently describe, recognize, and support deeper instruction is a cornerstone of effective leadership. You will have the chance to collectively practice, discuss, and give one another feedback in a safe, trusting environment. Participants will observe instruction in real classrooms, identify strengths and high-leverage areas for improvement, and design related coaching and professional learning experiences. Implementing these strategies will help ensure equally high levels of achievement for all students across the three dimensions (mastery of knowledge and skills, character, and high quality work).
Note regarding eligibility to participate: To participate in this professional learning community, participants will need to be able to apply and collect evidence of their skills in an authentic coaching relationship with at least one teacher at their school.
This is a 7 day event. Please note these dates:
