SamTastic Weekly Tip: 10/6/14 - Schedule six “connected” events
This week’s tip: Schedule six “connected” events over a two week period with one teacher that your team believes will result in a positive change of practice.
During your SAM Daily Meeting identify a teacher your leader would like to spend time with to improve a specific teaching practice. Then strategize on what would help. Think about how the vents you schedule need to “connect”. A Walk-through or Observation needs to connect with a Feedback session. But doesn’t a Professional Development session need to connect with the Walk-through and Feedback session, too? How about a Teaching and Modeling session for the teacher followed by Non-Directive Feedback session and then an Observation to see if the teacher is able to use the techniques modeled? Make sure to schedule a Celebration Feedback session when your principal sees the change of practice you set out to accomplish.
