High-impact teacher teams build their collective expertise in the practices that matter most for increasing student achievement: 

  1. They clarify learning goals so students are crystal clear on what they are learning, why they are learning, and what success looks like.
  2. They plan for and infuse formative assessment practices throughout their instruction.
  3. They analyze results based on pre-established success criteria and identify specific errors in student thinking.
  4. They take timely, targeted action to provide feedback, re-teach, and extend learning.

In short, they use data frequently and in-depth to make sure that each student succeeds.

This course for coaches and teacher leaders is comprised of a 3-day workshop
