Level III:  Monitoring Implementation Efforts – ***NEW***

Tools for monitoring implementation efforts will be shared and participants will practice applying them to classroom videos.  Through this practice, participants will become more skilled in how to recognize, cite and encourage the use of instructional strategies that have the greatest chances of creating student success with the standards.  Tools used in this workshop include the Green Flags / Red Flags Criteria, the Instructional Practice Guides from Achieve, and the EQuIP Rubric.  Participants will work in teams to determine

  • How teachers align practice with the instructional shifts
  • The types of academic conversations that might be initiated from the use of the tools
  • How the tools can be used in current professional development efforts

Level III: January 20, 2016 – Click for more info.
