Improving Instructional Practice with Professional Learning
Based on the Professional Learning Conversation Frameworks, this collection of series is designed for facilitators to lead classroom practitioners on a journey to improve instructional practice. Using the National Board Standards, 5 Core Propositions, and Architecture of Accomplished Teaching, this professional learning opportunity will provide rich, deep, collaborative conversations to allow the personal and professional exploration of accomplished practice.
- What does accomplished teaching look like and sound like, in your classroom, with your students?
- How is equity ensured?
- How is student learning managed and monitored?
- How are collaborative partnerships built with families, stakeholders, and communities?
The Accomplished Teaching Series Train the Facilitators Workshop is a training designed for professional developers to become familiar with the materials and be able to structure a valuable professional learning for their educators, in their context. While NBCTs certainly bring a depth of knowledge and understanding of the foundational documents to the training, this opportunity was specifically designed to build the awareness and understanding of the body of knowledge around accomplished practice so any educator, NBCT or not, can lead the work engaging teachers in this highly valuable, rigorous learning to improve instructional practice and improve student learning. Workshop materials are included in the pdf or on this website such as the Book Study~What Teacher Should Know and Be Able to Do or Knowledge of Students Standards Study Bundle.
