Public Charter School Grant Preconference Workshop
Monday, March 3
9:30-11:30 a.m.
Jason Stricker and Heather Marshall

Using Video to Observe, Coach and Even Evaluate Teachers
Tuesday, March 4
9:45-10:45 a.m. and 12:45-1:45 p.m.
Michael Moody and Jason Stricker

It is clear from research that teacher quality is perhaps the single greatest determinant of student success that schools can control. Accordingly, schools are revamping the way they support teachers.

Teachers want to make sure that those observing/coaching them are experts in their grade/content areas (especially with Common Core).

How can video support school leaders' efforts to provide their teachers the feedback they need and also be time and cost efficient?

A Strategic Approach to Instructional Planning Using the Common Core
Tuesday, March 4
2-3:15 p.m.
Jason Stricker

Description: How can schools ensure high expectations and academic rigor using Common Core or state standards without stifling the innovative nature of the teaching profession?

In this highly engaging and interactive workshop, participants will learn about a process that empowers teachers and administrators to address this critical question.

Participants will learn to use research-based strategies and resources, Bloom's Taxonomy, a standards analysis process and the Common Core standards for developing authentic learning experiences in a standards-based system.

Common Core Track 201: Curriculum and Professional Development
Wednesday, March 5
3:45-5 p.m.
Michael Moody and Jason Stricker

In this session, participants will explore issues related to both curriculum and professional development and their alignment to the new standards.

Specifically, participants will explore the Common Core State Standards and identify specific actions they can take to begin integrating Common Core Standards into their instructional programs.

Learn about implementation practices from across the country as a way to assess your readiness and capacity to implement the Common Core effectively.

[Be sure to check out downloadables, including Common Core Implementation Self-Assessment.]

See you there!
