This new version of The Skillful Teacher 7th edition builds on decades of research into evidence-based instructional strategies that meet the needs of today’s classroom. Please join author Jon Saphier soon for a free webinar to learn more about the features of the latest edition. (Originally, the webinar was scheduled for January 18, but there is a conflict on that date. We will be rescheduling and publicizing the new date soon -- we apologize for any confusion our date change may cause.)

In this webinar, Jon will discuss:

  • how leaders can use The Skillful Teacher to improve teaching and learning in their building and districts
  • the planning decisions that can impact the quality and effectiveness of a lesson
  • how teacher’s beliefs influence student motivation and effective effort
  • social emotional learning as seen through the lens of building a classroom climate that addresses the affective needs of students
  • the power of providing students with quality feedback and its relationship to student achievement
  • cultural competency and it relation to high expectations teaching, an especially timely topic in our current political and social environment
