Description

 

One Modification, One Measure: Master Teacher Work Groups

Using Keeley, Christopher, and Buskist's "Emerging Evidence for Excellent Teaching Across Borders 1" book chapter as a starting point, each work group participant will identify one change to make in his or her teaching. Working collaboratively in facilitated work groups participants will develop their ideas, methods for evaluating the outcomes of their modifications, and share the results. Work groups will meet three times (see Meetings to the left of this column).

Session Outlines

January Sessions

Participants will be emailed the Buskist article two weeks prior to the January sessions, and should read the article prior to attending. Participants should choose no more than 2 practices/behaviors that they would like to act on and assess in their classrooms. Discussion will focus on the chosen practices/behaviors and how participants might set about to make changes in their teaching. Participants will be provided with resources relevant to measuring the outcomes of the changes.

February Sessions

The overall goal of the February sessions is to help participants advance toward their goals. Participants will have chosen assessment methods. They will share their progress so far and will help troubleshoot. Facilitators will collect the topics, strategies, questions that participants are working on for posting, anonymously, on the library guide.

April Sessions

At this session participants will share the results of the change that they tried. Ideas for pursuing further study of the outcomes of changes in teaching, and for using and sharing what was learned will be discussed.
