Block 2 : A Roadmap to Better Teaching: How to Elevate Instructional Quality Over Time

jul 24, 2018: 1:15 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.

Research tells us that classroom instruction has the biggest impact on learning, and charter schools have the ability and autonomy to define what high quality instruction looks like within their programs. In this session, Betty will take participants through video demonstrations of classroom instruction, and share how a systematic approach to establishing instructional expectations, proactive and ongoing monitoring, and professional development can lead to improved teaching practices and student performance. Data from schools will be shared.

Learning Outcomes:

• Increased understanding of the research-based indicators of high-quality instruction linked to positive student outcomes
• Increased understanding of common ratings applied to instructional practices to measure relative effectiveness
• A framework for elevating instruction over time
