Reflecting the national shift towards learning-focused supervision and evaluation, this program helps leaders zero in on high-leverage teaching strategies that make a difference to student learning. During the program, participants examine and use both a common language and a concept system about teaching to support any state framework. The program provides multiple opportunities for participants to develop keen observation and analytical skills that will support teachers in building their own capacity to impact students’ learning.

To ensure the alignment of our work with our national client base, crosswalks between The Skillful Teacher (2008) and Strengthening Teacher Evaluation (2014) and various states' and leading educators’ evaluation standards and models have been developed and are referenced in this program.

  • Communicate effectively about practices and decisions that impact student learning
  • Provide standards-based feedback and collegial conferences about teaching practice to stimulate reflection and growth, and thereby support and sustain high-quality teaching
