Thanks for being part of the Instructional Leadership Challenge! We held our first full workshop on Wednesday afternoon, and the recording is posted below.
In this workshop, we explore:
- Why classroom time matters for instructional leaders
- How to overcome the barriers and make time to be in classrooms
- How to provide high-quality feedback to teachers—more easily and in less time than ever before
- The #1 mistake principals make when scheduling time to be in classrooms (you'll want to avoid this mistake or you'll fail virtually every time!)
I also challenge you to accept one of 3 tiers of the Challenge:
3-5 classroom visits a day
Encouragement and “noticing”
Develop a habit of presence
Build classroom rapport
4-5 classroom visits a day
Linked to evaluation criteria
Develop rapport & reputation for IL
5-7 classroom visits a day

TeachBoost Software Training
A powerful tool we're providing to support you in the Challenge is TeachBoost, which I believe is the best software on the market for managing walkthroughs, observations, and evaluations—everything from scheduling to notetaking to feedback.
To get started with TeachBoost, please RSVP for a live session with Jill.
