Workshop #1 Recording: Getting Into Classrooms & Providing Feedback

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:

Tier I

3-5 classroom visits a day
Encouragement and “noticing”
Develop a habit of presence
Build classroom rapport

Tier II

Specific feedback
Linked to evaluation criteria
Develop rapport & reputation for IL

Tier III

Linked to growth goals, evaluation criteria, & PD plan

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.
