The contribution that teacher leaders make in schools is absolutely essential to making a significant impact on student outcomes. When teachers work together, change really happens!
Building School Capacity - Teacher Teams is a three-day workshop that prepares school-based teacher leaders to effectively facilitate their teacher teams.
Day 1 provides an overview of the leader’s role, strategies for effective facilitation and corresponding hands-on activities for acquiring and strengthening skills needed for guiding peers in deepening their practice.
Day 2 emphasizes strategies for optimizing team instructional decision-making through the careful analysis of data and student work.
Day 3 builds on the 2-day institute by addressing the important work of establishing a coherent instructional foundation in the school. Participants who attend the workshop will learn strategies for leading teams to establish common assessments and common curriculum. With these fundamentals in place, teacher teams will be better prepared to engage in inquiry around instruction and student learning.
Participants who attend this three-day workshop will return to their buildings ready to go with a set of strategies and tools aimed at building school capacity for important Common Core-aligned work.
